In a society that is orphaned and ravaged by centuries of conflict between humans and vampires a once-famous warrior priest (Paul Bettany) lives on his own in an enclosed urban community ruled by his own church. When a vicious pack of vampires capture his niece the priest violates his vow and embarks on a personal quest to save her before the vampires strike on her. His former priestess and his old friend (Lily Collins) who is possessed of supernatural powers, join him on his dangerous quest. They are battling an evil organization that aims to control the human race using an encroaching plague that is designed to eliminate them all. In the meantime, the vampire group, under the direction of an eminent leader (Sam Haine) is recruiting the beautiful, young Victoria (Emma Watson).
As they hunt down the evil organization, the priest and his friends are caught in a power struggle between them and the current ruler. When a tragic death is wrought during a riot brought on by the unrest and the current ruler becomes victim to a vampire that is the primary threat to the lives of priests and the rest of humanity. The threat is growing and the priest must choose which side to follow.
Annabel Wishston One of the few survivors of the original outbreak, returns as the Countess. After marrying a wealthy businessman, she has been raised in a sheltered atmosphere. She rises quickly in the society and forms close friendships with David (Barry Foster) and protects David from vampires she doesn’t even know. David offers to guard Annabel and allows her to reside with him. After a while, he joins her in pursuing the mysterious Dracula. However, he realizes that he won’t be able to be successful and decides that it is time for him to find love once more or with a new person or with Countess.
Annabel is soon joined by two new acquaintances, Steve (John Loughlin) and Tommy (Eliaunder). The three of them form the center of her vampire hunters who are referred to as the Priests. They initially lead them in part because she is an aspiring young woman. However, she soon realizes that her family connections will be more important as she pursues her enemy. Through the entire series, we see the women support and take part in the hunt to find Dracula.
The novel is primarily about the relationship between Dracula and the Priestess however, there are other aspects that aren’t as evident. There are priests who assist the Priestess and aid her fight vampires. These are the Walled Cities. These were cities which were isolated from the outside world and had only the services of a self-made defense force of the Priests. The Walled Cities were created to protect the inhabitants from Dracula and other threats.
ดูหนีัง In one scene from the movie the Priestess is shown giving directions to the young girls who are helping her in her mission. One of the directions is to have them seek out and kill any vampires they see. If the Priestess and girls are found dead , they are cremated and their souls are imprisoned inside the Walled City. The movie then cuts to fifteen years later when the priestess is interrogated by an investigator.
During this time the movie gives us another look into the thoughts of priests in this period. As they try to explain to the investigators the events that took place, they are distracted by their own past. They regret the deaths of their sisters and wish they could have assisted in their deaths. This film provides a glimpse into how vampires view the world around them, which includes both the good and evil that was prevalent in the period.
Overall, this film was a great vampire film to watch. It is entertaining to both old and young viewers. The acting was excellent and the story was well told , and the special effects were excellent. I hope that someone will watch this movie because of its excellent vampire film and be enticed to go watch the next movie: “Priestess of Valerian”.
