A loan officer who evicts an old woman from her home finds herself the recipient of a supernatural curse. Desperate, she turns to a seer to try and save her soul, while evil forces work to push her to a breaking point.
Five friends head to a remote cabin, where the discovery of a Book of the Dead leads them to unwittingly summon up demons living in the nearby woods. The evil presence possesses them until only one is left to fight for survival.
Four interwoven stories that occur on Halloween: An everyday high school principal has a secret life as a serial killer; a college virgin might have just met the one guy for her; a group of teenagers pull a mean prank; a woman who loathes the night has to contend with her holiday-obsessed husband.
Christine Brown is a loans officer at a bank but is worried about her lot in life. She's in competition with a competent colleague for an assistant manager position and isn't too sure about her status with a boyfriend. Worried that her boss will think less of her if she shows weakness, she refuses a time extension on a loan to an old woman, Mrs. Ganush, who now faces foreclosure and the loss of her house. In retaliation, the old woman place a curse on her which, she subsequently learns, will result in her being taken to hell in a few days time. With the help of a psychic, she tries to rid herself of the demon, but faces several hurdles in the attempt. Written by
When Sylvia Ganush attacks Christine in her car, Sylvia curses in Hungarian, "Az ördög szálljon beléd!" ("Shall the devil fly into you!") She also uses the Hungarian word "szajha" two times (the word means "bitch" or "whore" in English). See more »
During the scene in the grave, after Christine shoves the body of Mrs. Ganush off of her, you can clearly see the cable that is holding up the dummy of Mrs. Ganush. See more »
Why the hell does this piece of crap have such a high rating? It wasn't scary, exciting or good in any way. And the special fx where so bad I started laughing every time an eye flew out or goats started talking. It reminded me a lot of that "haunted mansion" movie with Eddie Murphy in it. This is as far away from "Evil dead" as Sam could possibly get. The idéa is pretty good, I can always enjoy a good hex. But as soon as the effects start taking over, the film lost all credibility. the acting is good, especially the boyfriend, but still not enough to sit through the entire film. Such a waste of time and money from an otherwise brilliant moviemaker. This movie is a joke. And not even a funny one.
