Detroit detective Sam Smith has been hired to locate young Chicagoan Donnie Bishop. With no explanation, it appears Donnie has disappeared from the face of the earth and Sam's journey to find him results in a frightening adventure of psychology and the occult set against the dark alleys and decaying streets of Chicago. The difficulty of the case is tied to the obvious deception of the women in Donnie's life, and Sam uncovers inappropriate and eerie relations involving his wife, grandmother and therapist. Not certain whether he has descended into a scam or a cover-up, Sam's difficulty with carrying out the case is compounded with his own worsening medical condition. The deeper Sam falls into this abyss of shadows the more frightening the case becomes, revealing a web of intrigue and obsession involving rogue police detectives, brutal thugs and a beautiful and murderous mystery woman who will stop at nothing to keep Sam from uncovering the truth - a truth that is too strange for anyone ...

The Worst Movie I've Seen In A Very Long Time!
6 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

I got a copy of this at the 99 Cents Store. I will refrain from complaining about having paid too much for the dreadful, dreadful DVD, in an effort to possibly warn others against attempting to watch this poorly made film. Please do not be fooled by the cover; obviously, the cover artist had nothing to do with this project -- i.e., he or she appears to have some talent. Everyone else associated with the film undoubtedly does not -- this includes the lead actor (so dull, uncharismatic and unable to carry a film, you will inevitably wonder how he got the roll), the director (hope he never gets a chance to make another film again, amen -- yes, that was actually a prayer), and all the supporting actors (clearly, none of whom are actually real actors, just cousins, relative of someone; they all had some free time on their untalented hands). The story is stupid, convoluted and not worth the investment of interest. It looks bad -- very poorly shot, is poorly plotted -- to say the least, and feels as if it was written by an amateur screenwriter under the influence of some pretty serious drugs. Bad, bad, bad! And bad again! Please avoid this one, for your own good! This is, without exaggeration, the worst film I have seen in a very, very long time. And I should add, it is not bad simply because it had a low budget; that is forgivable, understandable even. It is bad because that budget, despite how minimal it was, was completely squandered on a sloppy, ultimately pitiful project. Very, very poorly done; everyone associated with this garbage should be ashamed of themselves. There is no excuse for a movie being this bad, this poorly done! It is so bad; it will make you angry for considering it. It should not be available on this site! Again, bad, bad, bad! (PLEASE NOTE: Any positive reviews you might see appear for this film are false and insincere -- they will no doubt be planted by people related to the project in some way. So do not heed them: Avoid this terrible, terrible Film!)
