Eva (Emma Dark) had been an assassin for years, killing for money - but
then she had been turned into a vampire, and since she kills just to feed.
The transformation from one to the other never cost her much sleep and she
feels on top of the game. Then though she gets word that some of her own
coven are after her, and while she neglects the warnings at first, when
she is attacked by a vampire (Sharon O'Brien-Lumley) teamed up with
(vampiredom's mortal enemy) a werewolf (Chris Hampshire) and the only one
who offers her a way out (even if that means turning against her kin) is
another werewolf (Carey Thring), she senses something's very wrong - and
finds herself in a catch 22 situation ...
Seize the Night
is first and foremost evidence of what low budget indie genre cinema is
capable if people put their heart into it: This film is stylish to boot,
has some pretty exciting fight scenes as well as some not only for the
budget excellent effects work - but what's most impressive about this
movie is how it manages within no more than 13 minutes a world that plays
by its own rules without giving those rules away or giving way to endless
explanations - quite the contrary, the movie's pace is actually rather
breathless, and fittingly so, with hardly any time to reflect on the
elaborate backstory - and yet it works, and the backstory is tangible -
and ultimately, one just wishes to see more of the rather fascinating
world of this movie!!!
