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

Did You Know?


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.

Omfg Awesome!
10 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dude! Watched this movie for the first time today at the request of a good friend. At first I was a bit skeptical but damn was I wrong. Moments after mounting the DVD into my player I realized this would be the most incredible theatrical piece of art to grace my television screen for years to come. Seriously, how do they get these amazing effects?! I mean on the back of the box it did say they use stunning visuals and intense action scenes but I had no idea it would be this freaking amazing. I would have to give the overall voice acting a 25 out of 10! With amazing vocal talent such as Danni Filth, Ingrid Pitt, and Doug Bradley, how could you possibly go wrong? Story line was well driven through and through. Not once did I find myself even slightly confused as to the motive of then story, nor was i compelled to turn it off and watch great smut instead. The story was a well-weaved, beautiful masterpiece of intelligent British comedy, incredible action, and cunning linguistics. I will end this review by stating that everyone and their friends go out and buy this movie as it is well worth the $20.00 price tag. Once again i said buy! not rent. These people poured their souls into this movie for 18 months and produced something truly unrivaled by many of todays top Hollywood studios, so if you have any respect whatsoever for the film industry as a whole, please, buy this movie! On a side note I would like to add that if anyone currently reading this review is interested in creating such incredible effects as done in this film, it is very well within your grasp. Simply walk to the nearest toilet, take a seat (preferrably with some reading material, as you will be at this for 18 months or longer), and pour your soul into it... through your ass.
