A little uneven, but enjoyable
19 November 1999 | by (Milwaukee WI) – See all my reviews

This movie is the story of tabloid journalist Dario Dare (Ray Whalen, billing himself as "Rock and Roll Ray") who is shanghaied into assassinating a cardinal who has sold his soul to Bob Beezly (Carl Besasie) a "very powerful and influential demon". See, Beezly wants the cardinal's soul because the cardinal reneged on a deal with Beezly; Dare gets his own soul back if he does this little job for Beezly. Only, the deal goes sour, and Dare must get the help of his weird brother A-Man to go to Hell and confront Beezly.

Part of the reason it's uneven is that subplots dealing with a power struggle in the Vatican confuse the casual viewer (while I was watching the movie, my friend turned to me in the middle of a confessional scene and wondered aloud why the director was reminding himself of what happened in the first half). This isn't to say that the entire movie is boring, though. The acting is good for a low-budget film, and the fact that it has special effects at this budget level is great. There are also some genuinely funny bits scattered throughout the movie.

Overall, I'd recommend it for a Saturday night screening with some friends who like drinking and Drive-In style movies.
