Action-Horror: On an alternate world, a priest with supernatural fighting skills goes against church wishes to battle a cabal of vampires who have kidnapped his daughter.
In an alternate world, mankind and vampires have battled for centuries, nearly destroying the planet. The monstrous bloodsuckers were eventually defeated by a group of priests with supernatural fighting skills who confined the few remaining survivors to reservations. Years pass, the Church led by Monsignor Orelas (CHRISTOPHER PLUMMER) consolidates its power, and the world no longer has any use for their former protectors.

However, the vampire threat is awakened by a vampire/human hybrid known as Black Hat (KARL URBAN), a former priest who was feared dead in a failed mission years earlier. He kidnaps the teenaged Lucy (LILY COLLINS), the illegitimate daughter of the enigmatic Priest (PAUL BETTANY), to draw him away from Cathedral City and out in the open. Sure enough, Priest defies church law to go hunting for his child.

He is aided by a young sheriff named Hicks (CAM GIGANDET), who is in love with Lucy. The Church, though, wants to keep the reemergence of vampires a secret in order to keep the surviving human population under control. So, Orelas dispatches a team of former holy warriors led by Priestess (MAGGIE Q) to bring Priest back to Cathedral City "dead or alive."

Teens, mostly male, may be drawn to the film's promise of action, special effects, and monsters.
For intense sequences of violence and action, disturbing images and brief strong language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
