Witches and vampires run amok in wild new Russian horror flick, Guardians of the Night

With obvious comparisons to Timur Bekmambetov's atmospheric Night Watch/Day Watch films, an epic new horror spectacle titled Guardians of the Night is making its presence known to international fright fans.  Directed by Emilis Velyvis, this monstrous mashup of prowling paranormal creatures stars Ivan Yankovskiy, Konstantin Adaev, Sabina Akhmedova, Lyubov Aksyonov and Kristina Babushkina in a nocturnal mirage populated by a horrendous host of nasty vampires, witches and undead undesirables. The story apparently surrounds the fate of an innocent college student courier who delivers a mysterious package at a very bad time.  This impressive horror import opens in Russia on Aug. 25, with hopefully a limited stateside release shortly thereafter. 

Here's the official synopsis:

When eighteen-year-old Pasha rescues a beautiful young woman from a band of strangely powerful attackers, he discovers an underworld of supernatural beings living among us.

Take a peek at this sumptuous supernatural feast and tell us if you hunger for more.
