Synopsis: PRIEST, a post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller, is set in an alternate world -- one ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampires. The story revolves around a legendary Warrior Priest from the last Vampire War who now lives in obscurity among the other downtrodden human inhabitants in walled-in dystopian cities ruled by the Church. When his niece is abducted by a murderous pack of vampires, Priest breaks his sacred vows to venture out on a quest to find her before they turn her into one of them. He is joined on his crusade by his niece's boyfriend, a trigger-fingered young wasteland sheriff, and a former Warrior Priestess who possesses otherworldly fighting skills.

I do not know, feels like a grave.

Their queen is here.

And we have our orders.

It's a trap.

This is what is known.

There has always been man.

And there have always been vampires.

Since the beginning, the two

have been locked in conflict.

The vampire was the

hunter and stronger.

But the man had the sun.

It was not enough.

And so it went like this

over many years.

The two races destroying

not only each other ...

but the world itself.

Faced against extinction,

mankind has ...

retreated behind the walls of cities

under the protection of the Church.

And then the ultimate weapon

was found, the priests.

Warriors with the extraordinary powers, trained

by the Chrch at the art of vampire combat.

They alone turned the tide to man.

The remaining vampires

were placed in reservations.

And fearing of the power of the

weapon they created ...

the ruling clerics ordered

the priests to disband.

Former warriors integrated into

a society that no longer needed them.

And as the years passed,

the few surviving preasts ...

faded into obscurity ...

like the vampire

mass before them.


Residual readiation is still spotted.

The contamination is close to zero.

With a little luck, we can

finally start planting.

I am proud of you, Owen.

Great, we'll eat stewed leaks.

- Atoning for your sins?

- No, why?

Wearing the nicest dress, where else

would you be except the church?

I was in town.

I think that at least someone should

have a life outside this place.

I said I didn't want you to

spend so much time out there.

- I'm old enough to go where I want.

- 18 is not old enough, out here.

I know it's hard but we all

have to make sacrifices.

Sacrifices ?!

Living here like a prisoner ?!

Without friends, no fun ?!

Just that someday you could grow

something in these godforsaken lands?


Hold hands and say grace.

Dear Lord, thank you for

the food we are about to recieve...


- Owen? - Tear down below!

- What's going on ?!

Hurry child!


Whatever you hear, don't scream.

Stand behind me!



God protects you, the

Church protects you.

The city protects you.

Absolution of sin, is the only way.

Absolution of sin, is the only way.

Remember, be against the Church,

means to go against God.

Cabin no confession. 5, is free.

Move forward.

Initiate confessional sequence.

To use, say, speak at the time.

Forgive me Father, for I have sinned.

- Yes, my son?

- I had the dream again.

On War. Tell me more.

We were in the hives, like always.

Eastbound, and I wasn't strong enough.

Tell me more.

I have questions, doubts.

The Devil comes in many shapes.

The best way to combat him,

through personel sacrifice ...

and labor.

Yes Father.

Now say three Hail Mary's

and four Our Father's.

And remember, to go against the

Church, means to go against God.

Stop pointing fingers.

To tatoo.

Did it hurt?

- Why can't I talk?

- You can't talk to priests.

- Who are you?

- Name's Hicks, on the Sheriff from Augustine.

- What do you want?

- There was a vamp attack.

to Lucy. Your brother is hurt bad.

He told me where to find you.

And Shannon?

Lucy talked about you.

Said you were here during the war.

Said when killing vampires

you were the best.

I'm going after her,

I'm gonna get her back.

Just thought that to let you know

in case you wanted to come along.

Figure out I could use

like you by my side.


Thank you for meeting me in

such short notice Monsignors.

Monsignor Chamberlain

has informed us of the situation.

- Your family is in our prayers.
