Storyline

Dana and her boyfriend Tyler own a cleaning company and they travel with his stepbrother Iggy to clean up an old house for the arrogant real state agent Carl. They invite the promiscuous Heather; her boyfriend Brandon and the pothead Razz, who are their friends, to help them. They meet Carl and his secretary Alexandra in the house and when they clean the basement, there is a bad smell and they find a book made of flesh. Iggy translates the text and discovers that the place is a portal to an evil female demon that was summoned one hundred years ago. He also discovers that a sin would be capable to awake the She Demon and the group decides to have no sex in the house. But it is too late since Heather and Brandon are alone in a bedroom. Now the She Demon is unleashed and they find that they are trapped in the house. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

The incantation heard in the opening sequence sounds like "Cthulhu fhtagn R'lyeh," a bastardized version of an incantation in the H.P. Lovecraft story 'The Call of Cthulhu'. "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn", which translates as "In his house at R'lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming." See more »

Goofs

At various points in the film we can see that the nude, dead She-Demon has panties on, which are the same color as her skin. When Brandon tries to escape through the chimney, we can see the panties at the bottom of the mid-shots of the She-Demon. Though moments later when Brandon is actually going up the chimney, the camera pans down her body and you can clearly see that she's nude. Later, when Heather stops looking for Brandon and goes into the bathroom; when the She-Demon rises out of the bathtub at a 90 degree angle, she most clearly has panties on. See more »

Quotes

Dana: [after just escaping into the attic from a small zombie horde] I think we lost them. Where's Alexandra?
Iggy: They ate her!
Dana: ...so we're the only ones left?
Iggy: I think it's just you and me, two mere mortals against evil unknown fighting the preternatural powers of a hell-spawn succubus!
Dana: F**k her! F**k her and the forces of darkness that created her, f**kin' she-bitch from hell. Hateful, evil murderous bitch with no friends and BAD SKIN!
[inhales sharply and slaps her bicep]
Dana: We can DO THIS! What do we have?

Unoriginal stab at bloodletting cinema
17 June 2006 | by (Mountains of Madness) – See all my reviews

Can't say I was too impressed with Jay Lee's pretty unoriginal stab at cinematic bloodletting. A bunch of irritating teens and some twentysomethings rock up at at an old house which they have agreed to help renovate. Before too long, the renovators are getting murdered and possessed by demons resembling the offspring of the "Evil Dead" monsters. The problem is is it's been done too many times before in movies like the above-mentioned and "Night of the Demons", to name a few. Although there are a couple of decent gore effects, the acting is sincere but over-the-top and the dialog is of the cynical, smart ass variety. For its low budget, tech credits are acceptable and the sound mix is rich.
