Rafe's investigation leads him to a whorehouse/mortuary run by [=McCutcheon=] (Aubrey Morris). Further investigation leads our wisecracking hero to discover that the brothel/mortuary is inhabited by vampires led by {{Lilith}} (Everhart). Turns out Lilith was resurrected by Catherine's boss, televangelist Reverend Jimmy "J.C." Current (Sarandon), so he [[WellIntentionedExtremist could rid the world of sin]], but Lilith's got her own agenda...and has turned Caleb into one of her own. Now it falls to Rafe and Catherine to save the world before Lilith and her sexy vamps overrun it.

-->'''Rafe:''' I'm not going to tell you those aren't the Breasts of the Century, but [[NotDistractedByTheSexy I'm just not digging the owner]], so why don't you put those away; you're just not my type.
* ContinuityCameo: In the scene where Rafe, after being trapped in a hospital, manages to kill the vampire Tammy disguised as a nurse thanks to exposing her to sunlight, his female roommate wakes up and tells him to keep it down as she's trying to sleep. That roommate is played by [[spoiler:Creator/WhoopiGoldberg]], who appeared in both the wraparound and main segment of one of the TV show's episodes.
* CarFu: [[spoiler:How Rafe gets into the mortuary in the final act and takes down [=McCutcheon=]]].
* CassandraTruth: Rafe manages to find proof that Lilith is evil, but the pictures he takes show nothing since vampires can't be photographed. Doesn't help that an idiot of a police captain has bad blood with him.

* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Somewhat. The regular vampires have the usual weaknesses, but they can get by in the daytime thanks to sunblock. Though they're surprisingly weak (little holy water or sunlight, and they explode like confetti). Only Lilith is strong enough to mostly withstand these since she's the head vampire and only splitting her heart can fully kill her.

* TwistEnding: It turns out that the religious, celibate and heterosexual Catherine [[spoiler:was actually seduced and turned into one of the promiscuous, bisexual vampire prostitutes before she was ever "rescued," but played along so that Rafe would wipe out her competition and she could start a whole new evil vampire sex cult beginning with him]].
* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: Subverted; it's just a cover for Lilith's operations.
