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 enjoyable
3 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

I did not expect too much from this film but as Doug Bradley is in it I felt it was worth a watch.

The movie is quite disjointed, there are flashbacks and scenes that flit from one area of the story to another without much to link them initially which can lead to a little confusion.

The strongest part of the film is when it jumps to Jacob and his dysfunctional family moving to the country. The scenes with Jacob, Lauren and Rachel as pretty good. Jacob has a mysterious mirror in his barn which he shows to Rachel. Rachel comes across a stranger (Phelan) who is a vampire hunting Lilith another vampire, the one who turned him.

The film is a little overly dark as night time comes, it's a little difficult to make out at times.

There is a lot that is unexplained which is a shame, this could have been a cracking movie but is just okay.
