Entertaining Horror film provides a unique twist on the vampire genre. Worth checking out!

Great horror flick! Really enjoyed blood and gore and the religious aspect. Not too mention the vampire element as well. I highly recommend it!

Using the selling point of Rutger Hauer and Doug Bradley as the beef in the film dosn't really help this film once you know they are just cameo roles, totaling about 5 minutes between them. Apart from that, this Thirst wannabe drags its heels and lacks pace and surprises from indie film maker Neil Jones. Pity!

This was obviously a pet project for director Neil Jones and lead actor Stuart Brennan(founding member of the production company).
It's incredibly low budget but has some names that are not unrecongnisable in the UK. Doug Bradley & Rutger Hauer's involvement barely accumulates 10 minutes of screen time between them with the latter not appearing again after the typical comic book adaption style opening credits. Shane Richie & Tammar Hassan also appear as a pimp & crooked business man respectively, Hassan turns his hand here to a Sean Pertwee impression.
The story revolves around a young new reverend who is assigned to a parish located in a particularly run down area. On his his first night he is visited by a young woman who attacks and feasts on him, he retaliates and kills her. Unaware of what he has become, also a mystery to the viewer as it seems he's become a vampire but his actions in daylight seem to contradict this.
So he sets about cleaning up the neighbourhood by use of the bible or any other means necessary.
The effects are particularly shoddy but storywise it's not all that bad if highly unoriginal. To be fair to Brennan he's not all that bad but the film just fails to maintain any interest level. It just gets quite boring and the end can't come soon enough.

Low on budget, high on ambition.
