Steven Seagal Gets Some Vampire Action in ‘Against the Dark’

The odds are Steven Seagal doesn’t actually fall in love with a hot, brooding, highly-moussed vampire in his new movie, Against the Dark, but it would be fun to watch.  Instead, ShockTillYouDrop reports the movie will most likely follow the exciting synopsis below.

Katana master Tao (Steven Seagal) leads a special ops squad of ex-military vigilantes on a massacre mission, their target: vampires. On the post-apocalyptic globe, sucked dry by bloodthirsty vampires, a few remaining survivors are trapped in an infected hospital. Tao is their only hope and he knows the only cure is execution. Now it’s time for the last stand against the flesh-eating vampires and there’s nothing left to lose but the last of humanity.”

They had me at “Katana master Tao.”  Sounds like a mash-up of Blade and John Carpenter’s Vampires, and may actually be worth a drunken viewing even with Seagal attached.  The movie is cinematographer Richard Crudo’s directorial debut.  And since when do vampires eat flesh?  Is Seagal pulling a Twilight and messing with the vampire mythology?

Seagal continues to be a busy man.  In addition to Against the Dark, he has two other films in various stages of production, Ruslan and The Keeper.  Seagal also recently announced his presence in a new reality TV series called “Steven Seagal: Lawman.”  The show will follow his “adventures as a fully-commissioned deputy with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office in Louisiana.”  Sweet.  Against the Dark should be arriving on DVD sometime next year.

What’s the last Steven Seagal movie you actually watched?  Would it surprise you that he’s made 33 movies since debuting in the awesome Above the Law?
