Max von Sydow has some good lines, but he delivers them in an utter vacuum.

By the end of the film, I couldn't have cared less if the town's entire population had been dragged down to Lucifer's fiery abode.

Overlong, over-produced Stephen King byproduct. Forget it along with Firestarter, In the Mouth of Madness, Maximum Overdrive, and all the others.

Appropriately enough, the film climaxes with a series of huge explosions, each bigger and louder than the one before.
