Vamp Bikers Dos depicts a group of witches who descend into a Biker Town and attack the Bikers and Vampires who are converted into slaves and take control but when the Vamp Biker alliance with Vampires is broken they wage a revengeful war against the Vampires for a crime that will be brought to trial.
Eric Rivas casted various casted members from the ‘Forbidden Ones’, Rafael Tito Martinez and His motorcycle club contributed their time and Harleys to lend the film an additional touch of authenticity beyond its Coney Island locale. The Forbidden ones also let us shoot in their clubhouse which is unprecedented. They helped us big time with indoor scenes and the authenticity.
It will be showcasing at the Coney Island Film Festival on Sept 19th 2015 at 8:00PM and will feature films on the subject of Puerto Rico, its people, including those in the Diaspora, or that have a Puerto Rican in a key production role. It will also feature our cast in panels to discuss various related topics
