Storyline

A taut reinvention of vampire lore, Shadowland opens in modern day North America, where construction workers uncover an old stone cross and what appears to be a wooden stake. They remove the stake from the ground, allowing Laura (Caitlin McIntosh), a slumbering vampire, to revive and rise from the earth. Beaten and weak, Laura is unable to speak, remember who she is, or even the fact that she is a vampire! As Laura attempts to make sense of the strange new world around her, she begins to remember not only an idyllic human life in 1897 but the handsome Lazarus (Carlos Antonio León), a mysterious lover who may not have had her best interests in mind. Soon Julian (Jason Contini), a world-weary vampire hunter employed by the church, begins tracking Laura, but as he closes in for the kill he learns that things are not what they seem.

All Eyes on Caitlin
29 March 2013 | by bobjohnson994See all my reviews

I give this a solid 4 out of 10, without any curve adjustment for being independent, so that is not a bad score.

I agree with one commenter that it is almost like watching a lost soul who is an addict, wandering around, looking for purpose.

Also, I think if women thought they could get biceps like Caitlin, they would volunteer for vampirism!! What is going out in the day compared to having guns like that to show off? I also think Caitlin pulled off the contrast between her feisty, pre-vampiric self, and her broken, insecure post vampire self. She is a good actress in that regard.

I fault the writing a bit. Some of the tension between the Hero and the black pastor was too contrived, they could have handled that differently.

Still, an enjoyable watch, glad I rented it. I hope she does more work in the future.

Caitlin! Flex for us! :)
