Having managed to escape from captivity, kidnap a widower — Jacob Fuller — and his two children — Kate and Scott — and cross the Mexican border undetected, the Gecko brothers decide to stay at the Titty Twister — a sleazy stripclub/bar — before meeting up with their contact. However, the bar turns out to be run by a flock of bloodsucking vampires. Now, the Geckos and the Fullers must team up and use all their abilites to survive. Will they slay these ladies of the night? Or will they end up as the evening specials?
This campaign was originally intended to be a Bonus Scene at the end of the third Rogue One episode, (similar to Doctor Who: Day of the Moon,) but it got so long that it was released as a separate campaign. This makes it the second campaign to be released in the middle of another campaign, after Alien.
During its release, it had - with its six participants - the largest cast out of any Film Reroll campaign.
Starring Jon Miller as Seth Gecko, Jocelyn "Joz" Vammer as Richard "Richie" Gecko, Scott Aiello as Jacob Fuller, Pitr Strait as Katherine "Kate" Fuller, Timothy E. "Tim" Nolan (First Full Appearance) as Scott Fuller and Paulo Quiros as the Dungeon Master.
Followed by Jurassic Park.
- Actor Allusion: In-Universe. At one point, Paulo refers to Razor Charlie, the vampiric bartender, as "Machete."
- Adapted Out: In the film, an larger swarm of vampires appear after the ones in the bar have been slain. They may have been cut to avoid Ending Fatigue, and to give the protagonists a chance to survive.
- A Form You Are Comfortable With: Santánico seems to have something like this going on, as Katherine becomes increasingly convinced that she is actually her mother, having come Back from the Dead.
- All Part of the Show: "Katarina" tries convincing her brother that the whole Bar Brawl is just a play. He doesn't fall for it.
- Ascended Extra:
- Badass Bystander: The NPC's also participate in the fight, and some of them actually manage to kill a few vampires.
- Bittersweet Ending: Seth, Scott and Frost survive, but the two former have both lost a family member, and Kate is still out there...
- Bottle Episode: The whole campaign is set in and around the Titty Twister bar. Subverted in that it has a large cast of players and an even larger cast of NPCs.
- One of Santánico's robed associates has exactly the same voice as Saw Gerrera. This is, of course, lampshaded.
- After proclaiming himself queen, Pitr wonders if there are any sheep nearby he could ride around on.
- Cast of Snowflakes: DM Paulo Quiros gave all of the bar patrons their own names and stats, resulting in a map filled to the brim with tokens. This was to allow the group to play as whichever characters would survive the massacre.
- Convenient Replacement Character:
- When Jacob dies, Scott Aiello starts playing as Shell-Shocked Veteran Frost instead.
- Later, when Richie dies, Joz takes on the part of Frost's buddy Claude, an Original Character who — despite the players' insistence otherwise — was created specifically for this campaign. He gets the honor of becoming both the one to take down Santánico with a knife through her heart, and the one who eventually runs after Kate with the intent of hunting her down. The players speculate that he might be an descendent of Van Helsing.
- Crosscast Role: Joz Vammer as Richie and Claude, and Pitr Strait as Katherine.
- Death by Adaptation:
- Determinator: Both Jacob and Scott Fuller, both of which keep fighting for several rounds after recieving life-threatening injuries. The former manages to crush a vampire's heart under the weight of his own, dying body, while the latter — despite all odds — actually manages to survive the campaign.
- Distracted by the Sexy: Scott Fuller, being a teenage boy in a topless bar, is utterly stunned by what he sees. His sister Katherine, on the other hand, is — as their late mother would have put it — "gobsmacked."
- Dodge the Bullet: Subverted. Paulo mentions that Santánico dodges Seth's bullets, but later clarifies that it's the more realistic "diving out of the way before the gun fires" type of dodging.
- Double Standard: Rape, Female on Male: Inverted and discussed. Joz feels that Richie isn't given much flak In-Universe for being a registered sex offender, and wonders how other grindhouse movies would portray a woman with a similar past. (Though the other players point out that he mostly hangs out with the kind of shady criminals who wouldn't care about such things, including his brother, who's only mad at him because his behavior increases the risk of them getting caught. Then there's the fact that the Fullers — and the hostage he and his brother briefly kidnapped in the film — are clearly creeped out by him, that he seems to have some kind of mental deficiency, and that he's given a very brutal death scene.)
- Dying as Yourself: Right before Santánico dies, she returns to being the woman she once was, and says a few words in a language nobody in the bar understands. note
- Hyde Plays Jekyll: Kate pretends that she's turned back to normal the death of Santánico, allowing her to fake a Freak Out and literary leave the scene.
- Failed a Spot Check: Kate keeps ignoring and Hand Waving the increasingly obvious signs that she's turning into a vampire until it's too late. This is likely part of Santánico's brainwashing.
- Falling Chandelier of Doom: Seth shoots down one after Frost points it out to him. It manages to kill most of the vampires, who have gathered in the middle of the room.
- Hypothetical Casting: The players suggest that Claude should be played by Jean-Claude Van Damme.
- I Am Not Leonard Nimoy: Initially, Paulo Quiros simply calls Santánico Pandemonium "Salma Hayek." Granted, that is much easier to remember...
- In Medias Res: As this was meant to be a Bonus Scene focused around a supernatural Bar Brawl, (technically it still is, just a very lengthy one,) the campaign starts with our protagonists arriving at the Titty Twister.
- Nasty Party: Much like in the film, the Titty Twister bar is a trap set by vampires to lure in unsuspecting prey. Pitr and Tim had not seen said movie, and were genuinely surprised by this reveal.
- One Steve Limit: Averted, sort of. The character Scott Fuller has the same first name as Scott Aiello, who plays his father here. Meanwhile, his sister Katherine is played by Pitr Strait, who's also married to a woman with that name.
- Papa Wolf: Here, it is not Seth Gecko but rather Jacob Fuller who punches the man outside the bar who flirted with his teenage daughter.
- Pronoun Trouble: Paulo refers to several of the female dancers as "he," perhaps simply because he's not used to using female Mooks. It's eventually decided that there *is* one single male dancer, who was simply never caught on camera in the original film.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: When Jacob Fuller hears that there is no bathroom at the Titty Twister and that the patrons go outside to do their business, he's had enough of the bar and decide to take his children and leave through the back door. It doesn't... quite turn out the way he imagined it would.
- Sequel Hook: Kate has fled deeper into the temple, with plans of taking it over and raising her own army. Meanwhile, the newly minted vampire hunter Claude chases after her, intent on finishing the job.
- The Fuller family want to get this business over with so they can go and watch The Avengers. (No, not the superhero movie which hadn't been released yet, the one with Uma Thurman. No, not Kill Bill...)
- Pitr mentions the George Lucas Altered Version of Return of the Jedi, feeling that while the jazz number in Jabba's palace maybe wasn't the worst change done to a Star Wars movie, it was by far the weirdest.
- Spared by the Adaptation:
- Richie lives far longer than his movie counterpart, but is eventually killed by a vampirised Kate, who rips his heart out.
- In the film, Santánico Pandemonium was one of the first vampires to die. Here, she's one of the last.
- Unlike his movie counterpart, Frost survives the entire story and goes on to join Seth's gang.
- Scott also manages to survive the campaign, despite spending most of it with grevious injuries. It is mentioned that he had to be taken to a hospital afterwards, though.
- Unfortunate Names: Pitr feels that both the Gecko brothers and Santánico Pandemonium are victims of this trope.
- Vampire Monarch: Santánico is referred to as a vampire queen. "Katarina" also grants herself this title, though it's unclear if any of the other vampires actually accept her rule.
