Underdog movies were rampant in the 1980s. They spanned just about every genre. 'First Blood,' 'The Karate Kid,' and 'Revenge of the Nerds' are a few of the most popular. Moviegoers would also see this character type in Horror films. Everyone has seen or at least heard of the film 'Lady in White.' It's had quite the following since it's release in 1988. Well, seven years prior, it's writer/director Frank LaLoggia made his debut. The film is another one of those "Devil comes to Earth" movies. It's also one of the strangest you'll ever come across.
Pros: Well acted. Great score and soundtrack. Atmospheric. Gorgeous cinematography and scenery. Quite impressive directorial debut. Some nice effects. Lots of cheesy goodness. Moves at a decent pace.
Cons: Lacks subtlety. Dated. A lot of underdeveloped characters. Muddled story. Some effects that look silly now. Derivative of better movies like 'Carrie' and 'The Omen.'
Final thoughts: Think the first three 'Omen' films combined and on acid. That's the best way I can describe this bizarre effort. It falters in many ways, but doesn't fail to hold interest. The filmmakers put a lot of effort into this and what they came up with has to be seen to be believed.
My rating: 3/5
