Storyline

An angel was cast out of heaven and dispatched to Earth 1400 years ago. The angel was made a slave of the devil and was sent forth to terrorize mankind. To rid the world of this evil threat a "device" was erected to imprison the angel. Now the "device" is about to open. The Ceremony must be performed to keep the angel imprisoned or evil will rule the Earth. Written by Bren L. M.

Well, it was an interesting idea...
10 April 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The video box cover for this film looks great, featuring a big nasty Devil with white boiled-egg eyeballs and some pretty cool looking rams horns. The premise is even pretty interesting: a clockwork device that has been running for thousands of years is finally winding down. At the stroke of midnight, it will release an irritable fallen angel, and it is up to a group of devoutly religious students to keep it trapped within the mechanism for a few more thousand years.

Unfortunately, this film falls a few miles short of actually being good. The budget is substandard, the actors seem to have flunked out of drama school and the whole thing turns into a messy, sloppy, cheap looking splatter film. The Devil is still decently icky looking, but it doesn't get a lot of screen time. Instead, we get a possession scene featuring a giant tequila worm crawling down the throat of an annoying girl who has been tied up and unwisely (and conveniently) left alone in a dark room. Yeah, that's exactly what I would do if a demon was loose in MY house, uh huh. The ending is cheesy and not even kindly old Forrest Ackerman in a wheelchair can save this putrid mess.

I give this film 2 stars - one for the Devil make-up and one more for the original idea, which unfortunately goes nowhere and never develops. It's a shame because, in the right hands, this could have been a pretty good film with a cool new story to tell.
