Melissa Reneé Martin,
A group of devil-may-care teenagers discover they've mistakenly called upon the Prince of Darkness in this flashy horror story. A handful of high school students have been entertaining themselves on weekends by playing an elaborate role-playing game in which they impersonate witches, warlocks, and other magical beings. One weekend, they decide to up the ante by breaking into the school and using the building's nooks and crannies to make the competition more challenging. One of the teens has brought along a book of magic spells, and they decide to throw some incantations into the games to make things more interesting. What the kids didn't count on is that the spells actually work, and soon the role-players have unleashed an unspeakable and dangerous force. Written by
I can put up with a lot from a movie, especially when my choices have to do with dirty dishes, Real-Trash TV and/or brushing the cat. But this one goes in the pile with "Lethal Target" and the first "Brotherhood" hoodwinker.
My comments concern the VHS version I bought "pre-viewed" for 5 bucks. I wish I could have about 3 of those back.
The first things I noted were through-the-tube voices and high school level acting. Well, I don't expect much acting in a horror movie.
The whole look and feel told me I'd picked up something from maybe as far back as twenty years ago, so imagine my surprise when I saw it was from 2002!
Some of the music didn't fit, though at some point near the end I realized it suddenly was pretty darn good. Throughout the movie I kept wondering when I'd hear some heart-jumping sounds, either music or effects, but they never came.
The rating said something about sensuality. What sensuality? Do they mean the kid showering in his hip-hugger briefs? Or maybe it was supposed to be the leather-clad couple looking as though they were auditioning for porn made by Disney.
I didn't see much in the way of violence, either. If I recall correctly the stabbings were shown in *almost* slow motion, but the camera was cut away to other scenes before any knives hit their marks.
The Plot Summary has nothing to do with what's in the movie, though at the very end we find out that, yes, this is another reincarnation-type thing. At least in the first of these "Brotherhood" movies we know what's going on from the beginning.
And I don't think there was one scream in the entire film. sigh
