In the year 2019, a plague has transformed almost every human into vampires. Faced with a dwindling blood supply, the fractured dominant race plots their survival; meanwhile, a researcher works with a covert band of vamps on a way to save humankind.
For the rain effects, instead of using expensive rain towers, the film's climactic scenes were done simply by using hoses. However, because the water was unheated, production had to be stopped three hours early because lead actor Andy Whitfield became hypothermic, his temperature dropping to 32.5 degrees Celsius.

To be honest, I wasn't expecting much of this film, but I am happy to say that I was completely blown away by it.
The lead actors Andy Whitfield (Gabriel) and Dwaine Stevenson (Samael) were amazing, I couldn't believe that neither of them had done much work before, in my opinion, these are two men who have the potential to go far. Not that the supporting cast wasn't brilliant, Harry Pavlidis (Uriel) stole his scenes completely and Michael Piccirilli (Asmodeus) portrayed his character so well, he made my skin crawl.
When I read that the film was made on a ridiculously low budget, I was shocked, it didn't get in the way of the film whatsoever.
The plot and premise it very original and is carried out in an interesting and often spell-binding way. I was completely held from start to finish and think that in one viewing, it has made its way into my top ten films of all time.
I don't know what else I can say about this film expect for: watch it.
