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

Ambitious
22 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

If anything than the movie is pretty ambitious. With it's relatively small budget (around 100,000 pounds, according to IMDb) it does try to achieve too much. Unfortunately it's not the scope that makes this movie fail, but the small details.

Watching "Pinhead" (Doug Bradley) from the Hellraiser movies playing a real role is really a treat. Unfortunately though his lines aren't really good. Not that anyone else in the cast gets good lines, but it is even more apparent when you have such a recognizable face. Quite a few story ideas get watered down by that.

Another big disappointment is the fact, that the movie has too many flashbacks and or moments were it seems to stop entirely. There are quite a few ridiculous moments to, where audience members were laughing, although the scene wasn't intended to be funny. Still much effort has gone into this movie and it's the first feature length movie the director has brought out, so maybe we will see something better the next time around. Plus if you have a heart for low budget movies who try hard, but can't quite achieve their goals, then you might quite enjoy this one.

The version I saw, wasn't completely color corrected, but I didn't rate the quality of the colors, I did rate the film. The director and some cast members were at the Frightfest All Nighter in London and did answer quite a few questions. Like how they got Doug Bradley for the movie. Fairly simple, they did send him the script, simple as that.
