  • how much did it cost??? by 7

    You can tell by the first five minutes that the movie is going to be hard to stomach...and its not because of gore! I think this movie cost 20 bucks to make! I've seen better acting at a middle school play. I really enjoy witchcraft movies, but this didn't even feel like a witchcraft movie. A lot of things are said that are not wrapped up and seem to just come out of nowhere. You leave the movie feeling like you know less than when you started. I usually tell people when I see a bad movie that it is worth seeing at least once, but i would never submit ANYONE to this. Look at its IMDb rating and trust the comments on this one, I think I would have rather been at the dentist. I don't like telling people my movie reviews because everyone likes different things. But i think it is safe to say that this is just awful movie making. Wanna see a good movie, go rent DEMON KNIGHT!!

  • I want the hour and a half back of my life. by 2

    I knew something was wrong from the start with the bad acting and 80's style wanna be heroes. I should of turned it off at that time and watched something else. However, I was like let me give it a chance and see what happens 30 mins into the film. That was a mistake too since the movie kept on getting worse. All I kept thinking is wow they miss cast the main character and dam she's bad at acting. The other actors were overacting at best which made the film even worse. Don't watch this film and save yourself.

  • horror for toddlers by 7

    Well well, I have seen a lot so far and especially those 70's grindhouse and exploitation movies but nowadays everybody is trying to make an ode to that era. Mostly they are total crap. But there are worser things happening, due the success of horror at the box offices the labels are bringing out every movie made concerning horror. And some are a total turkey like this one. Nothing really happens, a warlock appears and disappears like nothing while he is searching for his "lady" to rule the world. From the first five minutes you know enough, a shoot out while a black mass ceremony is happening. But when people get hurt no blood is flowing. Then we move on 12 years later when the girl who would be sacrificed becomes 18, an adult. But when she gets possessed by the warlock, you really should see the effects, so stupid. This is worser then watching Disney. In fact there are no effects. The warlock effects are just done by editing. And the possessed girl effects are just done by her hands. The so called love scene's are ridiculous, but hey, the director included some nudity. If your toddlers will find this DVD they will never be feared, in fact they will be amused like watching Nickelodeon.

  • Never watch.....ever by 1

    I rent bad videos to laugh at them, I purposely look for the crappiest videos and watch them just for the humor. (A bad habit me and my friends have) This is just plain bad. I've seen a lot of "B" Rated flicks but this one is the worst one. If torture was allowed in the U.S., playing this in front of someone over and over again would be the worst to endure. I've seen better acting in my school talent show, the gore and graphics looks like the producer made a mistake with it but left it in there because they didn't have the money to re-do it, the plot is absolutely laughable and just makes you hate yourself afterwards . I recommend that anyone who finds a copy of this, destroy it immediately and tell everyone else to do the same. And I'm not exaggerating how bad this is.

  • Cheap, lame & very poor. by 2

    On her 18th birthday a handsome stranger reveals to Rebecca, an orphan, that she is in fact the daughter of a witch & warlock, etc, etc. The DVD cover has scream queens Julie Strain & Brinke Stevens names on it but they are mere cameos Natalie Sutherland does a reasonable job as Rebecca & takes her clothes off several times, one of the few highlights. For the girls Danny Wolske gets his pecs out, but sadly his acting ability is wooden at best. There are a few death scenes, the girl being sucked down the toilet being the best part of the movie. Otherwise, the little gore is very poor, as is the whole, stupid film.
