Bram Stoker's Shadowbuilder is a supernatural horror film that was released in 1998. The movie was directed by Jamie Dixon and is based on a short story titled "The Shadow Builder" by Bram Stoker. The film stars Michael Rooker, Leslie Hope, and Shawn Thompson in leading roles. The story revolves around a demon that is summoned by a group of monks to punish the residents of a small town. The demon, known as the Shadowbuilder, is sent by the monks to punish a man named Jacob Rand who is seen as a sinner by the church. The demon is given the power to possess people and turn them into monsters to help him achieve his mission.

The movie begins with a young girl being possessed by the Shadowbuilder. The girl is taken to a church where Father Vassey (played by Michael Rooker) performs an exorcism on her. During the exorcism, Father Vassey learns of the Shadowbuilder's plans and sets out to stop him.

Meanwhile, the Shadowbuilder is busy turning the town's residents into monsters. The possessed citizens begin to wreak havoc on the town, causing chaos and destruction. As the situation gets worse, Vassey teams up with a local woman named Jenny (played by Leslie Hope) to stop the Shadowbuilder.

The two of them are joined by a team of scientists who are studying the supernatural. They work together to find a way to defeat the demon before it destroys the town. The group learns that the only way to stop the Shadowbuilder is to destroy the object that it is possessing.

The film is filled with suspenseful moments as the group tries to track down the demon and stop it from causing more harm. Each member contributes their skills to try and defeat the Shadowbuilder, leading to a thrilling and action-packed climax.

What sets Bram Stoker's Shadowbuilder apart from other horror movies is its focus on character development. While it still has its fair share of scares and gore, the film takes the time to explore the personalities of its main characters. This makes the audience care about their fates and root for them to succeed against the demon.

The movie also has impressive visuals, especially for its time. The design of the Shadowbuilder is particularly impressive, with its dark and menacing appearance. The special effects used for the monster transformations are also well done and add to the horror aspect of the film.

Overall, Bram Stoker's Shadowbuilder is an entertaining and well-crafted horror movie that balances scares with character development. The movie's strong cast and visuals make it an enjoyable watch for fans of the genre.
