Storyline

Brayker is a man who carries the last of seven keys, special containers which held the blood of Christ and were scattered across the universe to prevent the forces of evil from taking over. If The Collector gets the last key, the universe will fall into Chaos, and he has been tracking Brayker all the way to a small inn in a nowhere town. And now the final battle for the universe begins...... Written by Michael Silva <silvamd@cleo.bc.edu>

Trivia

Birds had nested in the rafters of the set, which caused audio problems, so before each take the crew would shoot off a blank gunshot to startle and quiet the animals. See more »

Goofs

When the group is trying to escape through the mine shaft, Jeryline goes off on her own when she hears something. At first, she has her blue denim shirt on. The scene switches to her point of view, and when it shows her again the blue shirt is off and she is just wearing her white undershirt. We see her point of view again, and when it switches back to showing her once more, it shows her taking the blue shirt off. See more »

Quotes

Cordelia: Are my sheets done yet?
Jeryline: They're downstairs. And I couldn't get all those stains out, either.
Cordelia: Damn guacamole.

Billy Zane steals the show
11 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

Billy Zane raises what would be a decent horror/action movie to a higher plane. His deadpan delivery and funny quips are surprising in a character that is supposed to be the quintessential evil demon. If there was any justice in the world Zane would've been considered for an award. His performance is that good. The special effects look dated now, but that doesn't hurt the movie significantly. The characters are sufficiently fleshed out (pun intended) making them a little more than meat for the rampaging demons. The story, while interesting, doesn't make a lot of sense, at least not the back story. God created the Earth but the demons were already there and had 7 keys which gave them power over the cosmos? Huh? That aside, the movie is well done and Zane's performance is not to be missed.
