Night of the Dead

The Midnight Crew are down on their luck.

Consisting of an ex-convict, an ordained huntress, a werewolf and a zombie, this team of supernatural exterminators-for-hire are called to Mexico City during the Day of the Dead to investigate a strange murder, only to find their client dead in the same manner- murdered by a vampire.

A single vampire is among the deadliest paranormal creatures out there, and this one holds the entire city in an iron grip stretching back centuries. However, the team's leader Rosa was born in raised in Mexico City, and she refuses to leave her hometown in the clutches of a monster.

Thus begins a game of cat-and-mouse as the Crew race to track down and kill the vampire before night falls, while the vampire's own pawns act to obstruct the truth through all means necessary. However, even if this dysfunctional team finds him, they may not possess the ability to survive him, let alone slay him...
