As Joel finds himself doubting his religious beliefs, he turns to a friend in New York for counseling. He travels from his home in North Carolina to move in with K to get his spirituality back on track. K takes him out to a nightclub where Joel runs in to a woman who captures his attention. The woman is a vampire, although it is unknown to Joel. K mistrusts her and attempts to talk Joel out of seeing her.

The vampire has killed men before. Each time a man is interested in her, she sleeps with them. Every man who sleeps with her ends up brutally attacked.

K begins to wonder about the woman and with the help of his friend Dougy, who happens to be a detective, delves into her background. K and the detective find she seems to be mixed up with quite a few murders, according to the information they retrieve.

K and Dougy decide to speak with Madam Sonia, who is educated on the facts of the “unknown.” Madam Sonia begins to explain to the two men how to deal with a vampire, although during their conversation, the vampire possesses Sonia. The men are left frightened over the sight and run out of Sonia’s home.

The two travel back to the local bar, where they find the vampire sitting alone at a table. Dougy and K locate the bartender outside, where he is dumping the trash. They persuade him to pour holy water into her next drink, along with the usual alcohol. The bartender agrees and creates the drink as planned.

The temptress sips the drink served to her. She begins to cough and writhe on the ground. As she is out of sorts, Dougy and K attempt to stab her with a knife. The temptress comes to her senses and using her powers, turns the knife blade back toward the two attackers. Dougy and K thwart her attacks and run from the club.

Getting back on her feet, the vampire goes after Dougy and K. The two men are killed, one by one, in the same manner she has killed before.

The story line picks up in Joel’s life again, finding him back at the club. He runs into the temptress and she talks him into leaving with her. They wind up at her apartment.

Joel is seduced by her charms. He allows her to kiss him. Joel faints and goes into a dream-type state. He is awakened as his nightmare takes him into a situation where his deceased father is choking him. His grandmother steps in, bashing the temptress in the head, giving Joel enough time to kill the vampire.
