Storyline

Casey Falls is the assistant of commodity trader Peter Oak, but wants to get a license herself. When the diabolic Nike appears and promises to make her successful by use of her supernatural abilities, Casey hesitantly accepts. By correctly predicting the price of soybeans, she manages to make a career, but the price that Nike demands is high: she wants Casey's soul!

Enjoyable fluff
3 January 2014 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Low-budget comedy-fantasy is completely undemanding, but easy-going and fun. Nancy Allen is very appealing as a community trader's assistant who longs to make her own mark in the stock market--and just may, but at the expense of her own soul! Director Richard Martini also co-wrote the screenplay with Lu Anders, and does a nice job at leading us through this very confusing world of high stakes. Still, the movie doesn't juggle its fantastic elements too gracefully with the financial perils happening in the real world and, as a result, it comes off seeming mighty slight. Nevertheless, not too bad. The interesting supporting cast is solid, and leading lady Allen is a charmer. **1/2 from ****
