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 »

Dreck
20 July 2006 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I went into this with high hopes, and came out shocked at how hackneyed and lame this movie felt. Mr. Lee has tried to pass off a humorless and derivative piece of zombie schlock as ultra-hip satirical horror-comedy, and the resulting mess is a series of sight gags and boredom. The FX may be decent, but the unimaginative direction and writing illuminates a heavy dependence on latex and fake blood. I was told the acting was excellent, and while I think that's a bit generous, for the most part the performances were good, and some were very good indeed. I have to give the actors credit, because the dialog was laughable (and not intentionally) more often than not, yet they managed to deliver their lines with a surprising degree of sincerity, so at least the director is capable of working with his players, or just knows how to cast appropriately. But in the end, the movie just becomes tiresome.

Definitely NOT an "Evil Dead" for the new generation, nor any generation.
