I found this while searching what Aiden Turner is up to .
Both he and Jonathan Rhys Meyers are in this (nom nom nom) ,which means I will want to see it.

It's about a demon kidnapping a woman ,which made me think of the Rachel Morgan series .
Has anyone read the books ? Should I read them ?

I've read and loved the books, looking forward to the movie/s.  Hope they translate well onto the screen.

After what I just experienced over the weekend, I'd say don't count on it.

I'm probably going to get bagged from here into the next Kingdom for this but ... I really enjoyed it, too much editing though, if you hadn't read the books you would wonder what the point was to some scenes.

Never read the books (my guess is they're for teens) but saw the movie yesterday. Average.

I hated that movie -_-'

I mean, if you're watching it as just a movie, it was really good.

But, as someone who's read the entire series 4 times over, I didn't like it.

If you've watched the movie, I strongly recommend reading the book.

Cuz honestly, as always, The Book Was WAY Better.

Actually it's more of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer kinda thing. Lots of Shadowhunters fighting to save the world against Demons and Downworlders and Valentine's Circle.

I saw the movie yesterday. I did not wonder at the point of any scenes. I enjoyed the movie so much I decided to buy the book.

I don't understand why people who read books and expect movies based on them to be of the same calibre. It's not EVER going to happen, so save your money and complaints.
