Storyline

Clark, a young Mathematics major at University, thinks she's found the best deal for student housing: a group of squatters who live in an abandoned hospital secretly. The quirky residents let her into their community provided she follow the rules, including not telling anyone about her living arrangements. All seems wonderful, until she discovers that the reason that the hospital was abandoned was a series of murders in the 1940's by a strange "shrieking killer" who was never captured - and the discovery that someone who's living in the hospital is using occult means to bring back the "Shrieker," a demonic force summoned and controlled by a human who knows the proper procedure. When strange occult circles are discovered, Clark finds herself the main suspect, because she is the newest resident. Written by Gary Dickerson <slug@mail.utexas.edu>

Familiar Plot Device
24 July 2000 | by (Dayton, Ohio) – See all my reviews

While this wasn't a bad film from the straight-to-cable genre, did anybody notice the plot device concerning marking someone for death by passing the runes to that person? If anyone has ever seen Night of the Demon, this should have been obvious. Again, not bad, but do yourself a favor and watch the far-superior Night of the Demon.
