Storyline

When mechanic Jeff Obold meets the wealthy and mysterious Bruno Rubin, he is exposed for the first time to the finer things in life. But Jeff soon discovers the source of Rubin's power: a caged creature called a "Darkling," which possesses the power to create incredible wealth for the person who will pledge unending "companionship." Now, as Jeff sinks further and further into the blackness of a soul sold to the devil, he will discover there is a high price to pay for the fulfillment of his dreams. The cast of this USA Network Original Movie includes Oscar-winner F. Murray Abraham (Amadeus, Star Trek: Insurrection) and sultry Nina Siemaszko (Wild Orchid II: Two Shades of Blue).

18 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

Comments pretty much cover it - although it did 'catch' me and keep me to the end, I wasn't impressed with the ending - it lacked focus really - sort of lost it in the last quarter to be fair - but, and this is the point, it had enough to catch my attention in the beginning. Shame it lost it at the end though.

If you pay for it, you will not receive value for money. If it's on TV it might be worth a background watch.
