A Weird and Confused Movie, But With Some Interesting Scenes and Sequences
16 October 2003 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Nick Hanson (Eric Woster) and his child daughter Amy (Tiffany Ballenger) move from Montana to Los Angeles searching for a new life. He rents a house with piping problems and he decides to work as a plumber and fix the pipe. On the basement, he finds bones and skulls buried below his house. A further investigation shows that the house was built on an ancient cemetery, but there were also recent bones. Later he will discover that there is a gateway to the past through one of the walls. An evil spirit is released in the house and starts bothering Nick and his best friend. This is the beginning of a weird and confused movie. In the cover of the Brazilian VHS, it is explained that the director and main character Eric Woster died in this house in the last day of shooting. Therefore, probably most of the montage of the film was performed without his participation. If the viewer pays attention, Eric Woster was also one of the writer of the story. But anyway, it is not a totally bad movie and has some interesting scenes and sequences. My vote is five.
