Hail! Horror! Hail!
18 November 2005 | by (Sleesburg, VA.) – See all my reviews

I half to say I really loved this movie. I have been watching this movie for many years and have never grown tired of it. The movie jumps around so much at times it seems like a horror soap opera. There are many random characters and random creatures throughout the whole film. The only downside is the story really dosen't go anywhere, but who cares about story when a have about 15 different monsters killing and terrifying everyone in the movie. Apparently, this movie was meant to be much more than it was. Originally titled "Twisted Souls" there was I think two or three different directors directing this movie. It would be very interesting to see what would have been done with the original idea of the movie. But nonetheless, the movie turned out very fun and very silly. Check it out if you can find a good copy as I am still looking for a version that may have extra footage.
