Best B Movie Ever
6 March 2003 | by (Northern, California) – See all my reviews

I am somewhat of a B Movie junkie. I've seen this film about 4 times. The first time I saw it I was 15(Late Night Cable). I was hypnotized by the innocence of a demonic being and the depth of the story line. It was one of the best B movies I had ever seen even now 7years later. Featherstone wasn't playing apart she was the part of a beautiful demonic angel full of innocence and bloody justice. Her character made the movie and having a good script to work with didn't hurt either.

Is it so hard to believe that God runs Hell, Demons are God fearing, and we suffer for our sins until we realize and repent. If I wasn't such a sinner I'd ask God for a job.

If you haven't seen it see it, if you didn't like or even appreciate it for what it was you weren't really watching it.
