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

Surprisingly good and original for low budget horror!
4 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Just seen it on the Horror Channel and quite liked it!

It obviously had a low budget but considering it was filmed in SURREY I thought the western scenes were well done and added to the mystique and legend of it all.

Acting was also pretty good and I don't know why people have a go at the gorgeous Natalia Celino as she wasn't bad (she didn't have much acting to do other than snarling or saying cryptic things!) and let's be honest is best when naked!

The plot and mirror could have been better explained but the locations were great (loved the cave scene), it was well shot in the snow (the final scene is rather 'Badlands' in its lyricism) and well acted by all especially Doug Bradly, Jonnie Hurn and young Rita Ramnani.

And the western soundtrack is fantastic. This in no way deserves an average rating of 3! It's more a solid 7/10 from me!
