During filming, numerous press materials listed the title as "Transit" - because of the killer's ability to jump between bodies as a way of moving around the city. Orion, the film's US distributor, decided in post-production to re-title the film "The First Power" so potential audience members would be more aware of its supernatural/horror elements. See more »

I've got to be honest here: I first saw this movie in my teens and loved it, so I might be a bit biased here, ignoring it's flaws. Just saw it again, over 10 years later, and I gotta say, while it didn't have the 'wow' effect it gave me before, It still holds up as a decent movie. This movie is fast paced and just crammed with awesome ideas that sometimes work, and sometimes could have been used more effectively.
What do we have?
An insane serial killer - This guy just oozes evil, amazing bad guy.
A very cute psychic - man did I have a crush on her!
Plenty of mysterious happenings and scares (though not very scary for
Cool action sequences. That ceiling fan scene is so awesome.
Satanic superpowers. How is that not super cool?
The pacing is great, with lots of interesting scenes.
Nice touches of humor now and then.
So What could be better?
The ending is a bit unsatisfying.
Things could be bigger and more epic.
While decent, Lou Diamond Philips could be replaced with many other
actors, and there are more charismatic ones out there.
Seeing it again, it wasn't that scary, but I remember that it was the
first time. Could be scarier though, I guess.
If you analyze things too much, there are lots of small plot holes.
This movie is like an older, more low budget version of 'End of Days' with Arnold Schwarzenegger (which I liked as well). If what I told you sounds interesting, this movie is a great way to spice up a boring Sunday evening!
