Storyline

Seattle, USA, 1999. At the demand of MEG, a camera crew investigates the strange course of events that brought STEVEN H., her boyfriend, to be hospitalized. Steven's condition is serious. His body has been severely lacerated by an unknown assailant. The doctors think it could be a wild animal, or maybe even a man with extremely long and hard nails. Steven is also suffering from a mysterious infection that spreads inside him at an alarming speed... The camera crew investigates on Steven's past weeks, hoping to find the truth and learn what really happened to him. Steven was doing historical research on trading between Mexico and the US, and had focused his work on a man called Balmaseda, a prosperous Mexican businessman who disappeared in 1932. This apparently innocuous research led Steven to a much darker discovery... Everything seems to revolve around a group of mysterious characters, all members of a satanic sect : The Black Door. Balmaseda was one of them. The mystery is about to ... Written by Anonymous

Crude Satanic Ritual Scenes & Human Sacrifice
12 May 2012 | by (Monaco) – See all my reviews

Plot & Argument: A Phd student researching the history of trade between USA and Mexico in the 1920's stumbles by accident upon some strange documents and a really scary, eerie and terrifying old 8mm movie in Black & White. The docs and 8 mm film contain explicit details and images about a strange group of secretive, fanatical and extremely violent group of devil worshipers, doing a very crude, chilly and realistic ceremony involving ritual murder & Human Sacrifice, with some obscure magical intent. All is filmed in an explicit way. From here, many things happen, and the movie develops the story. The Phd student investigates what happened, and discovers an unsettling story. The story is told in the Witch of Blair project Style.

Bad Points of the Movie: The acting is quite bad, except for the 8mm black & white documentary like movie inside the movie.

There are some inconsistencies and the script is bad, as well as the end of the movie, which is also very bad in my opinion.

Good Points of the Movie: In my opinion, the only good thing about this movie is the excellent documentary-like 8mm movie in Black & White. Here, the acting is convincing, and it has some very scary realism. The devil worshipers are very real, dark, and extremely frightening. The ritual is carried out with great attention to detail, from the beginning to the terrifying end.

Conclusion: It is not a great movie. It is actually a bad one. However, it is worth watching it if you like horror movies. The little movie inside the movie contains a unique and ultra-realistic description of a very dark and frightening ritual. This is rare, and not seen before. This part is very well filmed, and it is indeed uncomfortable, uneasy and extremely terrifying to watch. Pity the rest of the movie is not as good as the ritual part.
