Storyline

A creepy three-part anthology which is actually constructed from a trio of German-produced independent short films that form a narrative around a mysterious cult in 1983 India as a wrap-around story. In the first story "Shakti", a reporter talks to an institutionalized cult survivor who claims to have murdered her boyfriend. In the second story "Devi", a man awakens from a therapy session to discover that he's been beaten senseless and held prisoner by his evil therapist. In the third story "Kali", a faith healer exorcises a spirit from a person only to discover that he has released it into his cellar. Written by Larry B.

Have you ever been able to look inside yourself?
5 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As the description says, it is three segments about a mysterious cult. A "reporter" with a hidden agenda manages to get the "inner demon" of Elizabeth (Jandris Irena-Heliana) released in the first segment with almost deadly consequences.

The demon attack, and the bizarre suicide, barely compensated for the low budget look of the film.

I have never seen anger management therapy the way this cult practices it. A man who wanted to jump out of his skin was literally forced to remove his skin. It won't help in this life, but it will make him better in the next.

I am not really sure about the third segment. It was just strange.
