Storyline

Fresh from seminary school a new Reverend (Stuart Brennan) embarks on his first parish. A small, low maintenance Chapel based in the quiet idyllic setting of a quiet country village. While on the surface, the village seems to be a peaceful parish, with perfect residents, soon it becomes apparent that something more sinister lurks beneath the façade of a local businessman. On a wet, cold night, a mysterious girl visits The Reverend at the chapel. Cold and upset, she is welcomed in warmly, soon it becomes apparent that her visit is not for sanctuary, but to deliver a message, a message in the form of a deep, bloody bite. Awoken with an unknown, uncontrollable thirst, a confused Reverend can find no evidence of the girl from the night before, with nothing but the thirst and memory of the bite, The Reverend embarks on his mandate, to clean up the village and the neighboring estate, by preaching or feasting.

Goofs

In the beginning of the movie when the Reverend gets bitten the Girl seems to have taken a large chunk out of his neck. You can see the chunk missing for some scenes until he has cleaned the wound and it just moved to a extremely large bite wound. Then in another shot the wound moved from just being on his neck to being on his Jaw and neck. It also seems to switch sides with each scene. See more »

3 on a scale of 1 to ten is low right? I won't grade it a 2 but surely nothing more than 3 and I'll give you all the info you need: the camera work is amateur and cheap; the acting is seriously bad from half the characters at least, especially that Steven Seagal lookalike; the effects are somewhat acceptable, few, nothing pretentious, nothing spectacular; the plot itself, bad; even Rutger Hauer's appearance was nothing more than a Shakespearian rap battle.

I'm telling you, don't get impressed by other positive reviews, as they are either fake or coming from people who seriously have little contact with horror. It is a very weak movie that will annoy, disappoint and let down everyone standing in front of it for a view. Pass it, if you that much into modern religious horror movies try either "Heretic" tho it is also quite bad but not as this one or "The borderlands", the last one being the found footage type and much better in my opinion. Then again, keep in mind, much better than a 3, is not much either.

I'm gonna leave you with a warning, careful with this one, the chances that you might actually enjoy it or consider it a good time waster are very close to an "impossible!".
