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).

what a waste
13 July 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I've said before that u can't go wrong with the world of horror, allow me 2 withdraw that claim, this is boring from start to finish and the acting is nowhere to b found, I also think the idea of an infant with a deep voice being the evil one is an outrageously stupid idea
