A plague of vampirism is unleashed on the world. But in an outback farmhouse a group of humans have developed a unique tactic to ensure their ongoing survival. They have a vampire who will protect them at night from other marauding vampires, on the condition that in the day they will protect him. Invariably things don't go quite as intended and the situation inside the farmhouse deteriorates into warring factions. What follows is a fascinating re-working of vampire mythology as the two sides square-off in a struggle for survival as both compete for the upper hand in this tense, unnerving horror thriller.
There's no hair gel, no supermodel bloodsuckers and no sexy vampires in The Caretaker, these are fanged beasts who want to devour humans. The Caretaker remembers when vampires were scary, dark, creatures of the night who fed on blood.
Here people are often inept and corrupt, and survival may not be an option. The Caretaker has the online horror community buzzing and it is a dark testament to the power of home grown horror movies.
