From the beginning of the world, the evil first woman, Lilith (Shiri Appleby), was expelled from Paradise, becoming an immortal powerful being. A secret society, The Faith, was created to chase and destroy Lilith, who loses her memory after a battle. In the present days, when the ambitious and wicked Anders Raeborne (David Hewlett) uses an experiment trying to become immortal, he transforms himself in the evil Demonic, a powerful dark demon that transmits a red plague with his bite and tongue. The traumatized Faith's chief agent William Shaw (Richard Burgi) is assigned by their leader Prefect (Ross Manarchy) to bring the recollection and train Lilith to face and destroy Demoniac and bring his head to The Faith to develop an antidote.
"Darklight" seems to be a pilot of a television series, and it is much underrated in IMDb. The characters recall the mutants in "X-Men", and the appearance of Lilith, played by the gorgeous Shiri Appleby, slightly resembles Mystic. The beginning of this film is a little confused, but sooner it becomes engaging, with a good story and special effects for a TV movie. There is a mistake in the sequence when Lilith is thrown by Demonic onto a car, since the car blows a fraction of second before she reaches its roof. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Darklight, o Poder da Escuridão" ("Darklight, the Power of the Darkness")
