Let me be clear. I'm giving this one star for Perlman and Winstone, and them *only*. Even Gooding, Jr. falls flat. Hardly his fault, though, seeing as the script was a gigantic mess and the plot even more so. Copious amounts of gore and "Gotcha!" moments won't save a film. *Especially* not this one. [shudder] Avoid at all costs.
Checked it out for the quality of actors in a straight to video horror. A few good make up effects but mostly..... meh.
I like Cuba Gooding Jr, I like Ron Perlman, I like "B" horror films, but I did not like this. Not one bit. Why is it that some horror films with religious overtones (an often good genre, especially when preventing hell from opening) feel the need to pile on so much made up dogma and BS? It never holds up (even assuming suspension of disbelief) and it always detracts from the story. And in a case like this when it IS the story, it leaves you with nothing but a pile of absolute rubbish.
