An okay combination horror film from the sci fi channel.
For a science fiction channel movie it is pretty good...most of their movies consist of a computer generated monster of some sort in the water or killer dinosaurs or something. This one was sort of a combination of two Stephen King novels "The Stand" and "It" and while no means better than the books it is at least better than "It". Never saw "The Stand" so I don't know if it was better than that one. This one has a man battling what is essentially the devil many times in the past, each time helping someone out and they in turn are in his debt. Well the final showdown is about to take place, in a town where it all began so many years ago as the devil apparently killed many in a town including the man who would battle Satan's parents. So all those the man has saved start to go on the move for the town so they can help in this final battle. Of course, along the way the devil is trying to knock off as many of these friends as he can. Nothing to shocking and there are some plot points that needed to be worked out a bit more such as the Dee Wallace character and the main characters sister, still though it passed the time and had a few good gory effects, of course it had some bad ones too as you know the sci fi channel has to use that computer they own to add horrible computer graphics where using old fashioned techniques would have worked as well if not better such as the church steeple in the middle of the lake. Really why use cgi there? Simply imposing a real steeple would have looked more real and would have been cheaper too. Oh well. All in all not a bad flick it has this and that and look for Jeffery Combs in the sort of comic relief role as he does a good job.
