My thoughts… American Vampire is one of those comic book series that I’ve always wanted to read but haven’t yet. SWEET is an awesome fan film that makes me want to jump into that series! I love the Skinner Sweet creature effects! Oh, and actress Marina Maldonado is one sexy saloon girl! I love her costume! More Marina Maldonado, please!
