But what they find goes way beyond conventional police work. No, this is something else entirely...From official release/information:
Police officers Quill, Costain, Sefton, and Ross know the worst of Londonóor they think they do. While investigating a mobster's mysterious¬†death, they come into contact with a strange artifact and accidentally develop the Sight. Suddenly they can see the true evil haunting London's streets.
Armed with police instincts and procedures, the four officers take on the otherworldly creatures secretly prowling London. Football lore and the¬†tragic history of a Tudor queen¬†become entwined in their pursuit of an age-old witch with a penchant for child sacrifice. But when London's monsters become aware of their meddling,¬†the officers must decide what they are willing to sacrifice to¬†clean up their city.
