In a dark and decadent city, Sean Fallon - a corrupt cop - will have to face his own demons to put an end to a series of brutal rapes and murders of the most weirdest kind. With the help of the local pimps, headed by Chance, Fallon will go the hunt for the serial killer, that may in the end not be human! Written by
When Sean Fallon returns from the hospital to his apartment and checks his messages, there is one message from "Mary" stating that she cleaned his apartment. This voice is not the same actress who was Mary earlier, which was Misty Mundae (Erin Brown). The voice in this message has a very strong accent and is not Misty's American voice. See more »
Nothing makes me happier than a cop beating another cop!

Fallon (James Horan) apparently omitted many pages in the book of "how to become a good cop", but despite his drug addiction, aggression and corruption, he manages to make progress in his investigation when a series of murders is caused by a supernatural killer. After his dark sides were portrayed excessively, the good sides appear somewhat unexpected, for example at the university when he conducts his research very politely. Lance Henriksen, confined to a wheelchair, plays a gangster with more courage than the others ("Don't think I'm gonna run from you" - good taste?), when Fallon seeks assistance from criminals rather than his colleagues.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions, they say. Certainly the movie has got a few good ideas and actors, plus great locations at Buenos Aires - but everything is somewhat crude and overdone. Too many victims end up in body-bags, while the investigation is sloppy and slow, since the cops care more about their personal dislikes. The music is deliberately monotonous, looping the same dark chords to infinity, which might give a sinister atmosphere to a thrilling story, but alas, the story of "Dying God" does not pull it off, trying to please genre fans with the occasional sick stuff instead of providing a better explanation for the nature and character of the 'god'. Besides, the poor dubbing didn't make it any better.
