Anytime I see that a movie somehow involves vampires I have to check it out, as I’ve been a fan of them since I was small. So when I saw the previews for Priest, and read a little about it, I was intrigued.

Priest opens by telling the story of a time when vampires over ran the world and tried to wipe out the human race. The church stepped in and a group of trained Priest warriors with special powers were raised up to fight the vampires and take the world back. Now most humans live in a walled city run by the church, with some rebel cities existing out on their own in an old West type of world. Priests are thought to no longer be needed and have taken what jobs they can find. Suddenly a group outside the church is attacked by vampires and one Priest’s niece is been kidnapped. This Priest goes against the church and sets out to save her with the help of a young sheriff who is in love with her, and a Priestess who is in love with him.

These are not your typical vampires, they are hideous looking monsters and don’t look like humans at all though they infect humans to become their slaves. Personally, I don’t really care for this type of vampires but I did enjoy this movie and its many twists. The Priest is played by Paul Bettany, and he and the main villain are definitely my favorite characters in this movie. Black Hat is played by none other than the actor who played Dr. McCoy in the latest version of Star Trek, the wonderful Karl Urban.

As the story progresses there are many twists and surprises revealed, and they come to find out that vampires are actually evolving into something even more dangerous and harder to stop.

This movie is based on a long-running Korean comic of the same name and it left me wondering about the rest of the story. While my son and I both enjoyed it, it left me feeling like I came into the middle of the story and that what happened before and after the movie was actually more interesting than the story we saw.

Priest is now playing at Dinuba Platinum Theatres 6. Showtimes can be found on their website.
