Storyline

Young Daniel has been sent away to a home for troubled teens by his mother, who claims it's to protect him from his long- missing father. The father eventually returns and, despite his wife's plans, discovers where his son is being hidden away. It turns out that Daniel's father is actually a demon who wants to take possession of his body and begin a murderous rampage. As the body count starts to rise, only fellow inmate Charlie notices the change that has come over Daniel, but will he be able to convince anyone of what is happening before he becomes the next victim?

What A Movie.
6 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw this on cable (as Bloodspell) like 15 years ago as a kid. I enjoyed it. I saw it for the first time again since then last night and didn't really feel the same way. The only thing I remembered was the kid who got sucked into the wood chipper and the lady from Look Who's Talking was in it. Anyways, this is not really all that great. No special effects, absurd acting, and a dim-witted story. I guess it could be good for the bad horror movie buffs, but even I had a hard time sitting through it. Teens start dying at a center for troubled kids. The villain is the new kid who may or may not be possessed by his crazy father. Rather bloodless affair, with next to nothing to recommend it, unless if you were a fan of USA's Saturday Nightmares and your trying to see all those wacky movies again. One and a half stars.
