Some weird images and not much sense
30 March 2008 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Weird exorcist inspired horror film from the man responsible for the Blind Dead films. The story has something about an old witch using the daughter of a politician to get revenge...and then something. It wasn't 100% clear. Creepy at times because of the imagery rather than the story this is a lost little film that probably isn't really a loss being lost. That said I'm going to try to watch this again down the road when its not 2am. Whether you should take a stab at seeing this I'm not sure. Its images aside I'm not sure there is enough to recommend it, though if you get it in a multi-film DVD set like I did I'd give it a shot.
