Holy Moley !
29 January 2012 | by (France) – See all my reviews

The 1.0 voting is for the demons' make-up, which was okay, and for the evil nurse, who was the only actress in this dud.

Black and latino thugs break into the house of a whitebread, Christian family. When one of the thugs is visited by an angel, they run away, leaving the perfectly coiffed dad's-jeans father and his virginal blonde daughter in shakes. Meanwhile, the mother is ready to leave the hospital where she's treated for who-cares-what affliction when an eeee-vil nurse warns her of impending doom.

The thugs start to experience evil possession but are saved by a black minister that teaches exorcism-101 to the aforementioned blonde daughter, as you do. Then the whitebread dad admits to his brain-dead wife that he once joined a Satanic cult to obtain wealth and now he fears that his whole family is cursed. That's before he's possessed by the Devil and refuses to leave his bed.

This is a horror film a written by a "7th Heaven" writer, but with less subtlety. It looks like an educational film, with the same absence of style, drama-class rejects cast and a patronizing message. Previous reviewers stated that they thought it was a comedy, which I can relate to. The acting and dialogue are so atrocious that it borderlines on parody. The mother in particular is a hoot, with her xanaxed smile even when the evil nurse clutches the rosary beads from her hands.

This goes highly recommended to bad-movie lovers. My eyes were glued to the screen, mesmerized by the nullity of everything, but still I couldn't turn it off. It's fascinating that someone, somewhere financed this.
