Stephen and Ian are ruthless drug lords who are in the middle of a war with their rival Billy Rae Douglas. One night Stephen and Ian escort two girls home with them whom actually seem to be stranger than they are. The next morning they wake up and the girls are gone and Stephen and Ian are not feeling so well and soon find out their lives have been changed forever. They find out that the girls were actually Angels that infected them with a vampire type virus. In exchange for immortality, Stephen and Ian along with the other hordes of Vampires, are to kill off the human race so that the Angels can take back what should have been theirs. The Vampires begin their slaughter until the Demon world steps in to put an end to the Angel's plans, for the Demons are satisfied with the way the three worlds co-exists. Written by
What exactly is so impossible to understand about At Dawn They Sleep? It's not that incoherent, and the editing is not that terrible. Wanna know what I think? I think you people have been so completely brain-washed by the dazzling special effects of The Transformers, and the sweet-natured tomfoolery of The High School Musical trilogy, that you couldn't possibly tell what makes sense and what doesn't. So, next time you try out some independent art, and decide to not pay attention, keep your simple-minded, Mainstream-loving opinions to yourselves.
Did I just call a Brian Paulin movie "art"? Wow, I've been watching these movies for far too long. Nonetheless, At Dawn They Sleep is a totally underrated, ambitious, shot-on-video, apocalyptic gore-fest about two drug dealers who are unknowingly transformed into Vampires by a couple of Angels, in an attempt to wipe out the Human race so that the Angels can have Earth all to themselves. How these two new Vampires are supposed to take out the entire world is beyond me, but just go with it, I guess. Assuming the undead drug dealers are at all capable of the task at hand, the Demon world now has a thing or two to say about the situation, yet, their role in this isn't what you might expect.
How bout it? Spiteful Angels plotting on Humans? Helpful Demons offering their demonic support. A bit blasphemous, in deed, but I just can't deny quality horror when I see it. All kidding aside, Brian Paulin has a gift, and this day in age, underground film-making, done the right way, isn't as easy to come by as it once was, although, things still aren't quite as bad as they were in the 90's. With that said, At Dawn They Sleep kinda reminds me of a shot-on-video horror movie from the early 90's, called Shatter Dead, although, At Dawn They Sleep is obviously much more professional, as well as entertaining and action-packed, not to mention, interesting. The idea of Angels sabotaging Humans out of jealousy , because they feel God has favored us over them, is quite intriguing. If you don't hate low-budget horror with absolutely no socially redeeming values, and doesn't follow "the safe pattern", then you've found a new addition to your collection. This is real horror for real horror fans. 8/10
