No Clutch, Won't Bleed. Please Help!

The clutch reservoir ran out of clutch fluid the other day, allowing air into the lines and making it almost impossible to put into gear. Today I tried bleeding the clutch, with no results. Fluid wasn't even coming out of the valve. I saw a video where a guy showed how to bleed the master cylinder behind the clutch. I tried it and no fluid came out. It sputtered at first and then nothing. The clutch reservoir is full. Any ideas on what the problem could be?

The master needs to be fully bled before fluid will push through to the slave. The fluid doesn't just run out though, so more than likely, if you remove the rubber inspection plug on the trans, you'll see fluid all over the clutch. Probably time for a slave.
