Storyline

Three naïve guys, in their 20s, drive from Illinois to LA. A sleazy real-estate agent gives them a great deal on a house in the Hollywood Hills. The night they arrive, a solitary Mexican, who speaks only Spanish, tries to warn them that the place is possessed by Satan. They don't understand him, move in, and plan a party after they meet Lucy, their gorgeous neighbor from down the hill. An old friend of theirs, studying to be a priest, joins them. In the basement is a portal to Hell, so at the party, guests meet their end in various ways. Lucy and her friends may not be who the lads think. Is there any hope for these innocents? Maybe their neutered dog can help. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Utterly unfunny non-comedic horror film
19 November 2015 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

Arriving in Los Angeles, a group of losers hold a special housewarming bash to celebrate their independence, but a series of misfortunes before and during the event eventually makes them realize that the Devil is using the location to harvest sinful souls to rot in Hell and they must try to stop it while keeping everyone safe.

This one was quite a lame and incredibly unfunny horror/comedy. Among the numerous highly detrimental flaws here, the majority of time here is that the supposedly cheesy comedy is really lame and so not funny, not only in the execution but the concept as well. There's little about the concept of being unable to understand the Mexican that is provided with subtitles while they believe his concerns are for food, the absolutely single-minded mentality of keeping the house to themselves during the party as obviously creepy goings-on are happening that should render a higher degree of urgency in their actions or even taking those actions with much more intelligence than what's going through their reasoning here which is filled to the brim with such lame concepts that are supposedly funny. The characters here are so brain-numbingly stupid in their decision-making and backwards in their logic that there's so little to be feared from the scenario as it's furthered by their pure idiocy that they feature some nearly impossible amount of work throughout here just to make the story seem competent that these guys would be that completely stupid to let these events keep happening and not do something useful only to continually be stuck in the same situation minutes later due to their inherent stupidity. While there's little to blame here about this not being all too funny, the general stupidity of the action required to complete the storyline here is what hurts this one so badly and severely that together it's enough to knock this down even before getting several of the big flaws. Despite the length, there's several needless scenes here with the Fire Marshall and the lonely guy at the party just being totally unnecessary to make this seem longer than it really is, and there's the utterly detrimental plot thread about the story being treated as a joke here in the course of the movie which lower this even further. There's still a few positives here in this one, from the horror-worthy set-up that's pretty nicely done, there's some nice atmosphere at the part of the demons and some of the action at the end here isn't bad as the concept to overcome their Satanic powers isn't bad. Still, this one is just plain stupid and really can't overcome these problems.

Rated R: Graphic Language, Violence, Brief Nudity, heavy drug use, intense scatological humor and a clothed sex scene.
