Set in the dark futuristic world of Pearl City year 2040, "MALACHI IX" is a sci-fi supernatural drama about an alcoholic priest consumed with rage who struggles with the vow he has made to protect the city from vicious vampires and his lack of faith in the human race. His commitment is tainted by the breach of the blood source treaty, made 900 years ago, between the two governing bodies, the Holy Order Church and the Royal Republic of the Vicoy, inciting vampires to attack and leaving Malachi IX with no choice but to resentfully fulfill his commitment. Unfortunately, his crimes negligently executed push Daren Corbet, an arrogant but brilliant detective, to involve Malachi IX in his investigation to find the murderer. Written by
OMG! You would think after TWILIGHT these Hollywood types would leave the vampyre storyline alone. But nooooo..... Why is it always the Catholic branch of the Christian community fighting the "supernatural?" Do Methodists like vampyres? You never any of them fighting this evil. What about the Mormons or Jehovah Witnesses? Maybe some Shiites could get in on this! Pearl City, 2040. Looked more like Sacramento, circa 2008. It doesn't look bad, the shots are in focus. The acting is what it is, but the story just doesn't work. I didn't even get it was set in the future until I read the synopsis. I blame the producers. A couple of goofy effects don't make up for a cornball plot. At least it was only a short, but it felt longer.
