Arriving in a small town, a recently divorced man accidentally unleashes a demonic curse with a supernatural entity that is descended from a Satanic curse in his bloodline dating back centuries, forcing him into a deadly battle with the dangerous creature.
This turned out to be quite the decent and enjoyable monster movie. One of the better elements here is the rather impressive amount of suspenseful, enjoyable attacks in here which make this one highly interesting. The ability of having the attacks be mostly based on the fog-enshrouded locations that so prevalent in here so the opening attack in the woods where the guy searching for his cat only to stumble upon the creature in the darkness, or a later attack on the highway with all the different creatures getting involved in the incident both manage to incorporate those rather chilling elements to maximum impact. Other attacks, such as the ambush on the hunting party in the foggy woods as they prowl through the under-brush or the encounter in their house also showcase the film's penchant for creepy sections loaded with atmosphere so that tends to bring an overall chilling effort that has a rather frenetic pace to it due to these really chilling scenes. This one tends to go along at quite the great pace here which accounts for quite a few action-packed scenes that move the rather enjoyable plot along incredibly well. That has a lot to do with the concept of the curse here as well, coming off as a really different take on the whole cursed- bloodline angle and makes for a rather pleasing effort overall. Along with the creatures' look and the build-up in here to the finale, there's enough good parts here to make this quite entertaining. There's a few flaws here that do pop up, mainly in the few small attacks here that no mean nothing to the film as a whole. A couple of these attacks are just so short that it's impossible to get a sense of what happened, unlike past Sci-Fi Channel efforts where they played a fine role in the course of the film's events while others are edited so haphazardly that the disorienting nature of what's going on throughout here makes for some pretty troubling times with this. The other big flaw in this one is the fact that a huge majority of the attacks, fun as they may be, have an underlying sense of stupidity on the victims who continually wonder long into the traps and ambushes by their inability to recognize the danger of the situation. Add in some rather lame kills and a lot of off-screens ones as well and these do hold back the few flaws here.
