Robert has loss his dear wife and daughter to the plague and misses them. Dr. Morgan has antibodies in his blood that makes him immune to the vampire virus.

He finds their hideouts during their day and kills them by staking them in their hearts. At night, the vampires besiege his house as Robert fights them off. Dr. Morgan is at wits end as he grows weary of fighting the endless hordes of vampires in this isolated existence. The reluctant vampire slayer is the last hope for human kind!

Later, Maria is offered a deal she can’t refuse by Luzbel. Sister Maria is no longer a shining example of purity and is now a devoted slave to Satan.
