Haunted by recent events and on the run, a man finds himself the unwitting pawn of a possessed evangelical radio station and like his unfortunate predecessor must ask himself whether it is better to reign in hell than serve in heaven.
A Seattle history professor, drawn back to his estranged family on the Oregon coast to execute his late mother's estate, is reaquainted with his best friend from childhood, with whom he has a long-awaited tryst. Caught in an accelerating series of events, he discovers aspects of his father's New Age cult which take on a dangerous and apocalyptic significance. Written by
I really wanted to like this movie. I'm a big fan of the Cthulu mythos, and the preview actually looked pretty good.
Unfortunately, this is yet another disappointing release from HERE TV.
The frustrating thing is that the movie almost works. There are a lot of wonderfully creepy little details: the bizarre check out girl who passes the protagonist a warning note, the strange kids saying "I knew you'd be back", the crazy things being reported on the news.
Unfortunately, the film never really gels. I never felt scared, or even particularly interested in what was going to happen to the main character. About half way though the film, the plot breaks down almost completely and weird random events seem to take over everything.
The film was at least mildly interesting in a "what sort of weird stuff will they throw out next" sort of way, but never really worked as a story.
Cinematography varies from some very nice shots of the ocean to some very amateurish hand held stuff.
