Although supposedly set in 2008, the opening shot of London shows a landscape bereft of both the O2 Arena (Millenium Dome) and the several skyscrapers that surround the solitary building shown. Such are the perils of setting a movie in the near future, but displaying an already changing landscape to set the scene. See more »
Are you telling me there's something running around loose in the city, ripping out people's hearts and eating them so he can take their souls back to hell?
Looks that way.

This is one of those films you see on ITV at 2.20am Thursday morning. Its consigned to forever be overlooked, stepped on and pushed away. But it's also a b-movie of extraordinary magnitude. A mix of horror, action, breasts(Kim Cattral's, not Rutger Hauer's!) and witty one liners. It never seeks to be better than it is, and in doing so is all the better for it.
With a name like Dick Durkin in the credits, you know you're in for a treat. True, the ending crumbles somewhat(kinda like monty python + holy grail i thought), but the rest of the film is low budget gold. The use of London is great, and the supporting characters such as Cattral and Pete Postlethwaite lend some gravitas to the movie also.
Its a fun way to spend a few hours if you dont have the company of a good women.
Any film where a police officer can call a guard dog a 'dickhead' has to worth it's weight in platinum....
Remember....if you're gonna watch it, be sure to get some BIGGER F**KING GUNS!!!!!!!
