Underworld: Awakening

Episode Guide

Underworld: Awakening

Kate Beckinsale returns to her role as Selene the sleekly clad vampire warrior, who has awoken from 12 years of cryogenic hibernation at the Antigen biotech lab to find that mankind has discovered the existence of vampires and werewolves and has been mercilessly pursuing their extermination.

Selene escapes from the lab and discovers that, while she was asleep, she had a daughter, Eve, from her union with her lycan-vampire lover Michael.

While Antigen claim to be researching how to defeat the virus that creates vampires and lycans, they're actually looking for ways to overcome lycan genetic weaknesses. The DNA of a lycan-vampire hybrid such as Eve (India Eisley) is therefore of immense interest to Antigen.

Can Selene save her daughter?

Also starring Stephen Rea (as Antigen's Dr Jacob Lane), Michael Ely (as Selene's human ally Detective Sebastian) and Charles Dance (as the vampire elder Thomas).

In English, with some Russian with English subtitles.
