The Second Sight of Father Cooper

2012, 90 minutes

Supernatural Thriller

Rural Devon, 1855, inspired by true events... As winter descends upon a sleepy village, the local priest falls ill and dies. In his place came a wake of chaos that no one could predict—no one, except for Father Silas Cooper. Sent by the Church to take the village pulpit, this tortured and mysterious priest finds himself in a land where piety is all but lost. His first mass is delivered to empty pews and, despite his pleas to the local people, it is only a single nun, Sister Clare, who together with the Father keeps the faith. It is at first snow that the sins of the faithless villagers cause to open a portal to hell-on-earth, and in the wake of inexplicable single-file cloven footprints comes an equally inexplicable message, written in blood in the snow: 777. As Father Cooper inspects the footprints in the snow he is reminded of an ancient legend: seven deaths, seven nights—every seventh generation. Yet, on account of Father Cooper’s uncanny ability to foresee horrific events in the future, the superstitious villagers are quick to assume that he is the cause of the present disturbances.... That he has brought evil to the village. As the death-toll rises and suspicion reaches critical levels, Father Cooper takes refuge in the convent with Sister Clare, where their gentle, innocent intimacy reveals that it is indeed possible to love both God and Man. As Father Cooper’s second sight intensifies, he looks far into the future, foreseeing what shall become of the seventh generation, if the portal which has been opened is not once and for all sealed shut... Through Father Silas Cooper’s second sight.
