Alchemy doesn't work in film either.
1 July 2001 | by (Suburban Washington DC.) – See all my reviews

This movie doesn't have a clear plot and seems almost patched together. I saw it in theatrical release in 1986 and noticed that the film was copyrighted in 1981 - and the IMDB lists it as 1984. Obviously something got fouled up with this movies production, and the resulting film shows it. There is one good 20 minute segment involving some spooky goings on on a lonely, dark road - but that seen seems to be out of place in the movie.

I rated this movie a "2" - so that is almost, but not quite as bad as it gets.
