In an orphaned society riven by centuries of conflict between humans and vampires a once-famous warrior priest (Paul Bettany) lives on his own in an enclosed urban community, governed by his own church. The priest breaks his vow when a violent group of vampires enslaves his niece and sets off on a personal quest in the hope of saving her before they take her away. The people who accompany him on his dangerous journey is his old friend and ex-priestess (Lily Collins) with supernatural abilities. Priest นักบุญปีศาจ Together they confront the evil group that seeks to take over the human population using a new plague to eradicate them. Meanwhile, the vampire group, under the command of an eminent leader (Sam Haine) is recruiting the beautiful, young Victoria (Emma Watson).
The priest and his comrades become involved in a power struggle against the current ruler as they pursue the evil group. The current ruler is controlled by a vampire, who becomes the main threat to the lives and safety of priests and others. As the threat increases the priest must choose which side to follow…
Annabel Wishston is one of the few survivors of the original outbreak, is back as the Countess. She was raised in a secure environment after she was married to a wealthy merchant. She quickly rises in society and makes friends with David (Barry Foster) and defends him from vampires she doesn’t even know. David offers to protect Annabel and allows her to live with him. He joins her in pursuit of Dracula shortly afterward. However, he realizes that he will not win and decides it’s time to find love once more whether with a new partner or with Countess.
Annabel is soon joined by two new companions, Steve (John Loughlin) and Tommy (Eliaunder). The three of them become the center of her vampire hunters, known as the Priests. Although she initially leads them due to her age of woman, soon she realizes that her family relationships will be more important to her while she fights against the villain. Through the entire series, we see women who 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 so obvious. Priests assist the Priestess and help her fight off vampires. These are the Walled Cities. These are places which were completely isolated from the outside world, and were only supported by the aid of a self-made defense force by the Priests. The Walled Cities were created to protect the inhabitants from Dracula and other threats.
In one scene from the movie the Priestess is seen giving instructions to the girls who are aiding her in her mission. One of the directions is to kill any vampires they see. The Priestess and the girls are buried when they’re found dead and their souls are buried in the Walled City. The film takes place fifteen years later, and the priestess is being interrogated by an investigator.
The film provides a different look at the thoughts of the priests during this time period. As they try to explain to the investigators what took place they are focused on their own past. They are grieving the deaths of their sisters and wish they had been able to help them in their deaths. The film gives an insight into how vampire might view the world around them. It also highlights the good and evil that was prevalent at the time.
This movie was enjoyable to watch. It’s enjoyable for young and old viewers. The acting was good, the story was well-told, and the special effects were impressive. I hope that someone will be able to see this film because of its excellent vampire film and will be enticed by the story to go watch the next movie: “Priestess of Valerian”.
