Our story begins on a dark night. Zeke, a backpacker road-tripping across the country, encounters misfortune when his car crashes into a decaying cemetery. Luckily, he spots a neon sign buzzing in the foggy distance, advertising FRANK’S STEIN & GRILL-- a forgotten watering hole looming in the middle of nowhere. Once inside, Zeke slowly comprehends the true nature of Frank's patrons: fiendish creatures of the alluring undead led by gypsy vampire, Carmilla! She and her ensemble of monsters have dressed the bar in preparation for their ancient ceremonies and Zeke has the one element they lack to complete their rites – innocence!
