Storyline

A taut reinvention of vampire lore, Shadowland opens in modern day North America, where construction workers uncover an old stone cross and what appears to be a wooden stake. They remove the stake from the ground, allowing Laura (Caitlin McIntosh), a slumbering vampire, to revive and rise from the earth. Beaten and weak, Laura is unable to speak, remember who she is, or even the fact that she is a vampire! As Laura attempts to make sense of the strange new world around her, she begins to remember not only an idyllic human life in 1897 but the handsome Lazarus (Carlos Antonio León), a mysterious lover who may not have had her best interests in mind. Soon Julian (Jason Contini), a world-weary vampire hunter employed by the church, begins tracking Laura, but as he closes in for the kill he learns that things are not what they seem.

Trivia

Many stunts with the Mini Cooper were driven by producer Gayle Gallagher. The Mini was her car, and the production found out shortly before filming began that the lead actor, Jason Contini, could not drive a stick shift. Despite practicing regularly when off camera, he had not mastered the manual transmission enough to do the stunts by the time those scenes were filmed. See more »

A story about a beggar not a vampire
2 August 2010 | by (Tabriz, Iran) – See all my reviews

This film is somewhat enjoyable in that it avoids using too many clichés and tries to be different. It's quite successful at that. The film makes use of flashbacks at appropriate moments to unfold the past life of a female vampire. This helps the viewers understand that there's a human there somewhere underneath.

The film was quite successful at making me sympathize with her present life, although it was hard to sympathize with her past life, which is what we see in the flashbacks. One might think, well, she was an unruly daughter to her father and she just got what she deserved and was doomed to carry the pain of living the rest of her life as a vampire.

When I was watching this film, I didn't really feel like I was watching a vampire film. This was different. It was like following the story of a beggar trying to get herself some food and clothes and escaping from the police except that she had uncanny powers.

This film IS entertaining, but at times I felt it was too boring to watch specially because there aren't many main characters involved in the film other than a vampire girl wandering in the streets, an uninteresting guy trying to catch her and stupid police officers who don't even know how to use guns.

If you are interested in watching how a beggar desperately tries to survive on the streets, this is a perfect movie to see, otherwise keep your distance.
