Fading Of The Cries (2011/Lionsgate DVD)

 

Picture: B-     Sound: C     Extras: C     Film: C+

 

 

A young girl, Sarah find a necklace inherited from her late uncle, little does she know she unleashed a terrible spirit, a necromancer.  Now, this necromancer will stop at nothing till he gets his relic back, he sends hordes of his undead after her.  Only one thing stands in his way: a mysterious boy named Jacob along with his magical sword.  Jacob is sworn to protect Sarah and stop the evil; can Sarah and Jacob stop this evil before it becomes a plague on this world?

 

Brian A. Metcalf’s Fading Of The Cries (2011) has potential as this set-up shows, familiar as it is.  Sarah was a normal girl, which was until she put on a mysterious necklace.  It woke an evil spirit, the necromancer, a man who has delved into dark magic and made pacts with demons, but was then sealed away for his crimes.  Sarah broke the seal and all he needs the necklace to be completely resurrected.  Now, in a town full of undead, Sarah's only chance for survival is to follow mysterious boy, together they must uncover the past and find out what her uncle did.
 
Too bad this film was your typical teenager-saves-the-world-from-evil movie, undead hordes, mysterious pretty boy with a magical sword.  The main character was quite the spoiled damsel in distress, accidentally releasing evil into the world, whenever the monsters showed up she does is scream and panic, her saving only saving grace was the guardian boy (who was already dead) guarding her.  Too bad they could not have come up with more, especially since the look of the film is not bad, but the sound was limited.  Extras include interviews with cast and crew and trailers.
