Lilith The Vampire

Synopsis: 

In 1484, marked by the clergy moral corruption, popular movements in Europe were widespread. These movements were considered heretical by the Church. Among them, the cult of the Great Mother Goddess, which in pagan civilizations was represented as a creator goddess of life, nature, water, fertility, and culture was transformed by medieval Catholicism into a satanic cult. The Church began a series of judgments against the practice of witchcraft. Heinrich Kramer, Dominican inquisitor travels to Rome carrying a letter and money to get the Pope consent in the witches persecution. Pope Innocent VIII edits the desiderantes Summis bull, naming the Dominican inquisitor, Heinrich Kramer to combat witchcraft in Germany. Kraemer recruits mercenaries investing them Knights of the Order of the Cross, in order to hunt, process, torture, and kill the witches. Michael, the Sword of God, is the group leader, considered the most bloody and ruthless of the knights. The Knights and Kraemer became famous by cruelty acts to obtain the confession of witchcraft charges. In a village near the Carpathian Mountains on Transylvania border, the Knights looked for women who were deemed witches, devoted to a Mother Goddess cult. Women members of a pagan cult, invoke the Goddess Lilith, a seductive vampire who seeks revenge against the Church and the knights. For six centuries, Lilith fights against the knights, until 2018 in New York, a bloody battle takes place between the forces of good and evil.
