Levi Lee’s “Something Burning” is what you might get if you gave Richard Matheson’s “I Am Legend” the “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead” treatment: vampires have taken over the world, and the few remaining humans are kept alive to serve, as our protagonist tells it, as human Thermoses. Tiring of living chained up in a shed, to say nothing of the constant draining by members of the fanged clan living in a nearby house, the young man finally decides enough is enough.

I liked the concept, but these are some pretty weak vampires (one gets killed with a ballpoint pen) and our hero is a little too grating for me to get behind. There’s a nice “Evil Dead” montage as he prepares to fight the bloodsuckers, however, and the vampire radio station provides a nice counterpoint to the action.
