Storyline

Officer Joe Vickers would probably make a good policeman if it weren't for his two nasty habits. Firstly, he is a devoted satanist; secondly - he likes to kill people. When he meets a group of teenagers spending their vacation in a wood hut, he decides to investigate... Written by Jaromir "Vassago" Krol <jaromirk@kr.onet.pl>

The Best Film Ever Made!!!
3 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is pure magic! The star (bobby ray Shaffer) of this epic motion picture, is brilliant. His delivery of every line is something you'd thought you could only get in a Cecil B. Demille film. This film has a stellar cast and the editing is genius. No other film in history is better than this. This IS about as good as a film can get! I give this motion picture 10 stars because of its quality. You'll never see a better film in your life! Officer Joe Vickers is the greatest character ever put together on film. It puts all other to shame (moses, darth vadar, and even ben-hur) No other actor can capture the force Bobby can.
