Movie originally had different ending which instead in sewers took place in some warehouse and was lot less action packed. Following the successful test screening producers gave the filmmakers some money and short amount of time to film the new, more exciting ending and to add sequel bait last shot because they already planned to do sequels. Not much is know about original ending and does it still exists but there are many stills showing parts of it. See more »

The First Power is a solid and suspenseful mix of horror and action starring Lou Diamond Phillips. LDP plays Russell Logan, a tough LA detective on the trail of a serial killer that carves pentagrams in the chests of his victims.Logan gets his man with the aid of a smoking hot redhead named Tess played by Tracy Griffith. Tess warns Logan not to pursue the death penalty on Channing. The Pentagram Killer, played excellently by Jeff Kober gets marched to the gas chamber anyways.What Logan did not know is Satan's most favored serial killer has been granted supernatural powers of resurrection and possession. Channing then goes on a killing spree throughout LA while taunting Logan in the process. Totally evil and virtually unstoppable. Channing , Satan's helper is an awesome villain who seems to take great pleasure in his work. Great dark and ominous score as well as suspense and action . I remember really digging The First Power upon its release and it still holds up . Great supernatural thriller.
