Storyline

After a civil war in Hell, Lucifer has been defeated and the Key to Hell is in Lord Desecrater's grasp. However, the rebellious Dominator has his own thoughts and keeps the Key to Hell away from Lord Desecrater and is forced to fight off his forces including three other demons - Decimator, Extricator and Lady Violator. While on Earth, undertaker and exocrist Dr. Payne is in charge of London's dead. His three daughters who play in their own rockband called Crowcut, accidentally open a gateway to Hell by invoking black magi-ck into their music via the Lost Chord and unleash Dominator. Luckily for humanity, Dominator is willing to defend mankind, even if he is only interested in Dr. Payne's eldest daughter, Tara. When Desecrater learns of what has happened on Earth, he seeks out help using his new human agent - the corrupt politician Bishop, to carry out the rest of his deeds. Written by Vendaval Este

Trivia

Was originally planned in 2000 to be a downloadable episodic series with characters built on Cinema 4D, Poser and Lightwave (3D design and animation applications), but production stopped when director Tony Luke was diagnosed with a form of lung cancer. Having survived cancer, Tony Luke was presented with a deal to make Dominator a feature movie for the Sci-Fi channel and because of its roots as a manga, it was wrongly classed as anime by them. With only limited time and an extremely strict deadline, only so much work was put into the movie, meaning that visuals were 'blown up' and so many things such as textures could not be reworked.

Quotes

Dr. Payne: Well it's not my fault I can't send you back, I can't shut that bloody gateway either! God only knows what else might come through.
Dominator: Not God, but maybe... Ozzy, or maybe even Elvis, if we're really lucky.

What did I ever do to you?
12 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

Someone, somewhere, punished me the day I rented this.. thing.

In a nutshell: It's a feature-length coffee commercial which thinks it's the bee's knees. It is that awful.

I can forgive it looking like a high-school project gone wrong, that really isn't the issue, the problem is that it's so busy trying to be deliberately bad, it ends up being genuinely bad in every sense. Every voice actor on it seemed smug about their involvement, the sound quality was lamentable, it was BORING in the extreme.

There's little more to say, my dismay forced me to remove this insult to my wit from the DVD player after mere minutes, I've seen 'real life' stories that probably have a smaller budget completely blow this out of the water.

If the idea of this movie appeals, please go ahead and resent the money you wasted. Perhaps it'll go some way to repaying the poor, wretched publisher who allowed this thing onto DVD in the first place. I'd give it a zero rating if I could.
