Mr Anthony Hickox misses badly, though delivering a bunch of very imaginative scenes. It is sad. If only the following scenes had been squeezed into the original "Warlock" movie... or just into any other classic horror flick...
OK, here we go in no particular order. You can insert the definite article in each scene's callout.
Air walking. Cool and memorable looks fantastic even now, in 2013 AD.
Finger gunning. Funny but somehow not childish.
Pikasso death. Outstanding and artistic.
Stage glassy falling. Bloody and tongue-in-cheek.
Gas station black blood death. Very tongue-in-cheek.
Elevator blood bath. Suspense at its best.
Scalping on the go. Outrageous and wickedly ridiculous.
But everything impressive and stylish stops here. No, the birth scene is not on the list because it's a weak and awkward rip-off of the famous scene by Mr Davenport, whose crew was stoned (please, Mr Harry Davenport, correct me if it's not true and accept my apologies) and still pulled off a genuinely horrific extravaganza back in the 1980s.
If you want to appreciate the visuals, just have a look at the scenes mentioned above (the Pikasso death scene is simply the best). Everything else is a stinking bomb: the over-melodramatic "Romeo-Juliet" love story, the phony characters who are supposed to be tough (or is it just bad acting?), the ridiculous "jedi", oh, sorry, "druid" training, etc. Such flicks are a disgrace if you are into thought-provoking kick-ass horror films (the original "Warlock" and "Wishmaster" are good examples). But if you don't have anything against kidstuff, incomprehensive plot twists, and pathos spiced up with distorted cry-baby faces of the leading "heroes" on screen, give it a go...
Not more than a brainless teen movie. Alas. More tweaking and effort would have made a reliable horror classic out of this mess.
Just a 3 out of 10. Thanks for attention.
