Ethan was eager to finish high school just to leave the small town he was born in. but before that could happen, a mysterious girl got transferred to his school. Lena was the girl in Ethan's dream every night. Lena was rejected by the rest of the town for being the granddaughter of Macon, whom everyone called the devil-worshiper. Ethan and Lena fell quickly in love, with Lena revealing her witch identity to Ethan. on her coming sixteenth birthday, she will be claimed by either the light or darkness.
the film was like a less dramatic version of Twilight (2008-2012), even less beautiful or dreamy in that sense. the lead characters were enough to degrade the film, neither Ethan nor Lena were memorable, nor were they able to have us root for them until the very end. however, some supporting characters like Lena's sister and mother were very enjoyable to watch. even the edgy Macon was somewhat attractive. the storyline was highly predictable. but fortunately the mysterious atmosphere were addictive, there were also little dull moment throughout the screening time.
