The Forsaken

Director: J.S. Cardone Cast: Kerr Smith, Brendan Fehr, Izabella Miko

DVD (Wide Screen)


Genre writer/director J.S. Cardone crafts his own history of the vampire legend in this teen horror outing that takes place primarily in desert locations, à la Near Dark (1987) and Vampires (1998). Sean (Kerr Smith) is traveling across the desert to attend his sister's wedding when he picks up an unusual hitchhiker, Nick (Brendan Fehr). A vampire hunter, Nick soon has Sean embroiled in a battle between himself and a band of the undead creatures led by Kit (Johnathon Schaech). Caught in the middle of the supernatural shenanigans with Sean is Megan (Izabella Miko), who had been nearly turned into a vampire herself by Kit and his followers. Sean and Megan develop a romantic attachment, which encounters a further obstacle when Sean is infected with the vampire virus; only Kit's death can prevent Sean from permanently becoming one of the nosferatu.

This movie had it's ups and downs. I liked it for one, because Kerr Smith starred in it. Fot two, alas, a horror movie with some explanation behind it. If you're a real big horror fan, then this movie is for you. The one thing that I thought they should have included in this movie was the thought of Kit licking the blood off of Sean's face and kissing him afterward. Then I would have given it 5 stars!

If you're a true fan of quality horror films, especially those featuring vampires, you'll avoid this pathetic excuse for a film. If, however, you want your intelligence insulted with poor writing, inferior acting, and an all around inept production, then you should definitely waste your time by watching this idiocy.
