Not terrible, but could've been better
30 August 2012 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

Arriving at a strange European college, a student finds that a summoned demon that is trying to open the gates of Hell to unleash Armageddon on mankind requires his services to complete the ritual and tries to stop it.

While this one may not be one of the best entries out there, there's some decent stuff here. One of the better facets here is the film's rather nice mixture of sorcery and black magic, with the rituals being prepared here for the final ceremony, the location being a great setting for some Gothic atmosphere with its darkened hallways, eerie cemetery and expansive rooms within to make for some decent moments at times when this one really gets its solid plot going as there's some general creepiness on display here. There's a lot of mystery wrung out of this that it captivates what little attention that could have been given, and the storyline is pretty clever, giving the viewer the feeling that anything can go wrong. That said, there's still plenty to dislike here, from the exceptionally short running time that barely gives this one an hour-long running time, a rather unimposing supernatural killer that doesn't evoke fear at all, and a rather inane amount of time spent on flashbacks that aren't that exciting or thrilling, and when added to this one's low-budget gloss, comes up rather lacking in the end.

Rated R: Violence and some language.
