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).

It may require more sophistication than many of today's viewers possess
22 October 2000 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

This film certainly has its faults but nothing is good except by comparison. And comparing this film to many of the popular scaries today indicates superiorities to most. It builds on authentic information in the auto restoration area and the nature of expensive collectables. Its horror has a much more legitimate base than most of the currrent horror offerings. It also is very effectively nuanced in many ways.The acting is surprisingly good. People who gave this a low ranking either don't like the genre (fair enough) or are too dense to respond to a genuinely good film.
