“Temptation is a dark and harrowing vampire tale set within the beating heart of London. The East End has become the hunting ground for a breed of bloodthirsty female vampires (Reena Lalbihari – The Day of the Triffids, Laura Lagercrantz – Goal! III, Ellie Jeffreys – Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, Nowhere Boy) led by the mysterious Aurelie (Rachel Waters). Their sole purpose seems to be to feed on the blood of mankind as they lure their victims to an agonising death. Isabel (Caroline Haines – East Meets Barry West, Fever) is a pretty young woman who is plunged into a nightmare realm when she takes an illegal mini cab after a night out. Isabel is rocked by a thirst that tears through her once innocent body. Her family, including her sister Kylie (Laura Evans – Basil Brush Show), start asking difficult questions as the police intently pursue her. Thrust into a world of seduction and ancient forces, Isabel must decide whether to embrace the change and become a creature of the night, or save her soul by giving her life to the rising sun.”
