Storyline

Who will protect you from the things that lurk in the dark corners of the world? Or, more importantly, who will protect the dark corner dwellers from you? Dr. Helen Magnus runs an organization called The Sanctuary, dedicated to the discovery, protection, and study of unknown species living virtually undetected amongst humans all over the world. This groundbreaking web series lasted only 8 short episodes (under 20 minutes each) before being purchased by SyFy Channel, rewritten, and re-shot as a full length series. (See Sanctuary 2008 for the SyFy TV series) Written by SciFiChick81

A New Era of Sci-Fi
15 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've always known that there was more than what was seen, than what was known, but my beliefs were ignored. Layers of the extraordinary remained out of reach, but I could feel it lingering at my fingertips. And in the back of my mind, a phone rang, and a message tried to get through. But I stopped answering, and I'm still left out in the cold, ignored. But in a blink of an eye, my world came crashing down, and I found myself beyond imagination. A journey now lies at my feet, but do I dare take it? What risks would I face, and what destiny waits for me in the end?

Sanctuary ignites from the revolver of imagination and fires deep into the heart of Science-Fiction. A breathtaking journey into the world beyond grips us tight with chills and thrills, and we spiral down into the depth of drama. And unforgotten characters take us by storm with trials of their lives haunting their every step, tragedy painted across the past, and mistakes that could change the fate of the world, and we are left wanting more. But the edge of suspense keeps us hanging, and lives are on the line. And the waves of danger rise high, cresting with the end, but will the Sanctuary hold strong?
