worst acting I have ever seen
27 February 2012 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen any flicks made by Joe Castro, the director of this flick and by watching this flick, his first attempt I don't think I will ever do it again.

This must be one of the worst acting I have seen so far and I'm in the scene from the early eighties. It's just like you go watching a stage play at school done by your children. Nothing moves and every actor just waits for his lines. The only name worth mentioning is Forrest J Ackerman, but even he can't save this cheesy flick. And I can even but the word camp to it. When Jesus is shown I could take it but suddenly he opens his mouth and he's a vampire, really, and watch his hand go up, he's got stigmata.

The best thing and what makes it watchable is the demon itself. It's very well crafted and is really the best thing to see. It walks around even in it's nudies full frontal. That was a big surprise. And the explosion of a head is watchable too. But it is really a extreme low budget, vomiting and a snake going in a mouth is all done off screen.

This is a flick that you just can't get it that it ever was released but if you are into camp or cheesy flicks then you will enjoy it. Really, the sleeve of the DVD and the demon itself are the best thing to watch.
