Storyline

When a man (Taz), sells his soul to the devil to become the cities biggest drug boss, he obtains all the money, women and power the game has to offer. But when the devil comes to collect, in a clever and mischievous plan that only Beelzebub's mind could dredge up, Taz is forced to try to outwit the most evil force known to God and man. Satan increases the stakes by bringing forth a demon in the image of Taz's late father. Written by Ryan Combs

Missed Opportunity
12 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This one had potential to be a quirky, unearthly combination of the supernatural and gangsters. Think Innocent Blood (1992). Even done in a low-budget hack job it could have been quite a hoot. But...

The lead actor is quite a dead-serious voice-over embarrassment and the gangsters are less than Comic-Book enticing. Only the Demon from Hell and his creepy demeanor and slaughterhouse shenanigans add any fun to this, as the family in peril backdrop subtext is weak and mishandled to the point of distraction. It has a good "Twilight Zone" twist but it doesn't save it from Indie Movie indifference.

Worth viewing for the better, brutal parts and Horror Movie splatter. However it is the smarmy child protection and the "I will not raise a punk" inclusions that stall this one from becoming an overtly outrageous display of Grindhouse gory glory.
