Tmi and Allie seek shelter in a remote desert compound after becoming lost and stranded. A strange Manson-like character, Preacher (Drago), reluctantly allows them inside with strict orders to be gone by morning and not wander "where you are not invited." At first, Preacher and his mail-order wife Oksana (Nedeljakova) deny the faint screams and cries that emanate from one of the crumbling outbuildings. When Allie sneaks outside to investigate, she discovers that she and Tim have stumbled onto a bizarre cult worshiping an entity that may -- or may not -- dwell inside a haunted little boy. Written by
Having a thread-bare link to the other COTC films (at best), this ninth (??!!?!) film has barely any children at all, instead it focuses on one child that's locked in an old shed in back of the country house that a couple have the misfortune of having their car break down near. Belonging to 'Preacher' (Billy Drago, the sole reason to watch this) and his mail-order bride who seem hospitable, if a tad eccentric, at first. They let the couple spend the night. But then they start snooping around and all bets are off.
Saying that this entry is better than a lot of the series is damning it with the faintest of praises. It's still crap, just not as putrid. The film has laughably stupid deaths, trite dialog, and an ending that reeks. However the first half was serviceable enough. Plus it's always nice to see Drago in just about anything.
My Grade: D
