Stefan invites his daughter, Jennifer, to travel to Romania for the funeral of his mother. His mystic girlfriend Liz travels with them to the cursed village of Pelosoara, where they are welcomed by Stefan's brother Vladimir, and Jennifer finds the locals are very peculiar people. Jennifer learns that she is the only woman from the bloodline of her father. At the funeral a stranger approaches and asks Jennifer to meet him in the square in one hour. When Jennifer arrives at the meeting place, she sees a creature devouring the man she was there to meet and is saved by Thomas. The man tells her that he is the last druid on Earth, protecting the world against the evil ancients. They were defeated by the druids in the past and banished to the spiritual world. That night, there was to be a reclamation ceremony where the evil queen possesses a vessel to open a vortex between the spiritual and the real world to bring the ancients back to Earth. But Jennifer is to find out that things are more ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Funny movie
12 July 2008 | by leader-16See all my reviews

This movie was funny OK lets start with the bad parts, i just loved how they showed the end part where Jennifer was being offered, movies should'nt do that. Tomas kinda sounded like a surfer Brendan Fraisher. The jokes weren't that funny, kinda stupid actually.

This movie was kinda misleading, did'nt you think that it was gonna show a prequel thing to introduce the curse? When i first saw it i thought, OK it's starting with a medieval scene, nope, wrong. And when Tomas was trying to save Jennifer from her dad, it looked like he was bowling the grenade, into the horse. And that old man who sinned and wanted to meet Jeniffer at the square, he died immediately, now would'nt you expect him to tell him something important? And the ending was weak.

Now for the good parts, The story was good, acting was OK, music was pretty cool.

I give this movie a 7/10
