Storyline

In the Old West, the assassination of an ageing cowboy is thwarted by a sultry vampiress, the would-be killer left for dead in the dust. A hundred years later an ancient obsidian mirror, long unearthed from the Mesopotamian desert, is liberated from an American collector's vault and illegally transported to Europe. Jacob, an unscrupulous antiques dealer, moves to a remote farmhouse with his pregnant young wife, Lauren, and his difficult ward, Rachel. His goals are clear: to pass this near-priceless mirror to the highest bidder, and to prevent these two women from ripping each other apart. Nearby, a beautiful ornithologist, in nocturnal pursuit of the Screech Owl, is disturbed in her hide by a couple of noisy hikers. Her efforts ruined, she joins them by their campfire, but when one of them is mysteriously mutilated in the woods, she and the other are forced to flee and seek refuge at Jacob's farm. Something has been unleashed into the dark of that night.... Shadows take on a life of ... Written by Anonymous

Pretty bland but overall decent vampire effort
22 July 2014 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

Moving into a new house in the countryside, a man and his family attempt to start over his career as an antiquities dealer when his charge of selling an antique mirror causes a demonic vampiress to be loosened upon the family.

This was a rather decent if not all that great effort that really has some problems. One of the main issues with this one is the fact that the storyline is so off here that it never has much of a chance to do anything with it. This is especially true in the finale where it tends to offer about ten different endings to what's going on yet none of them are really engaging to begin with or do anything other than simply announce to the world that the filmmakers couldn't decide on a way to end this and just included everything as it leads into one another, forsaking storyline coherence, logic and a multitude of other areas here by the incessant manner of forging ahead with the ending here. As well, the fact that the film doesn't have a lot of attacks here really causes this to get drawn out quite early on with a seemingly endless amount of time between the family trying to get settled into the house, the adulterous relationship hidden in the wings and the way it finally gets the vampires out and into the story which is quite a difficult task when this goes on before any sort of horror-related efforts. Though when they do come, this turns into quite an enjoyable outing with some pretty decent moments on display, from the attack in the woods that sets up the ambush on the house and how they get into the confrontations with the creatures, and the final assault in the barn that's a huge fist-fighting brawl before finally being settled in the underground cavern is quite fun and impressive. Still, there's just way too much wrong here to overcome this fun stuff.

Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language, Full Male and Female Nudity, a Rape scene and drug use.
