Amy (Angela Durazo) is pregnant from her boyfriend John (Nathan
Schellerup), and with twins, too - but she can't let anyone know, least of
all him, as she doesn't feel ready for this and, accompanied only by her
best friend Rose (Katy Bentz), has an abortion, even if that goes totally
against her Christian beliefs.
The day after the abortion, Amy and John,
both journalists, travel to a small village in the middle of nowhere, USA,
to investigate a legend that's somehow in conjunction with the biblical
myth of Adam's first wife Lilith and that has to do with twin births -
something that only fans Amy's feelings of guilt over her adoption.
said village, Amy and John are heartily greeted by the local priest (Danny
Wynn) and his sister (Malinda Farrington), who prove to be great hosts but
are very evasive when it comes to this local legend ... and then Amy
starts to have horrible visions, visions that seem to have to do both with
her past that's shrouded in mystery, as well as the future that promises
the coming of the AntiChrist. Thing is, she finds more and more signs in
the real world that her visions are not just results of her disturbed
imagination but part of something horrible yet to come ...
so for all of us not too familiar with the Bible, the mythology The
Crossbreed is based on might be a bit on the long-winded side and the
way it's brought into the film might be overly complex ... but that all
said, this movie is basically just really creepy thanks to an emphasis on
atmosphere over over-detailed explanations, thanks to a rich and eerie
cinematic language, and thanks to its laid-back pace that really helps the
story's horror to blossom rather than throwing it into one's face.
totally enjoyable little spooker!
