Short Film: Seize the Night

Seize the Night was a 2015 short film that was directed by Emma Dark and… let’s get this out of the way (though the name doesn’t appear on the press kit at all) the film does owe a debt to the film Underworld and its subsequent franchise.

Now this is not a bad thing and, of course, a world where vampires and werewolves appear to be at odds is not unique to that franchise. But throw in a gun toting, black clad, brunette vampire killer (in this the heroine Eva (Emma Dark) was a killer for hire and is now just a killer) and we can see a homage.

Emma Dark as Eva
The film does very well at setting a scene where there are vampire covens and werewolf packs and they are known to humans. Indeed Eva was held in a cell by humans. It seems that humanity have developed a virus that can kill vampires, though there is limited antidote. Eva’s coven are after her and a werewolf called Tobias (Carey Thring) is searching for her. What does he want? Well you’ll have to watch the film to find out, which is now available to watch at vimeo (and embedded below).

It isn’t actually a full on story, more a showcase and a taster of what could be. And you know what, I’d love to see more. The imdb page is here.
