Storyline

There is an old wives' tale that you should hold your breath when passing by a cemetery lest an evil spirit rejected by both heaven and hell gets inside of you when you inhale. Someone in a carload of college kids on holiday doesn't hold his/her breath when driving by a graveyard, allowing the spirit of a recently executed serial killer to get inside him/her to begin a spree of body-jumping carnage.

cheesy old school B flick ode
11 September 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

I never thought that I was going to say this ever, this is a flick from the asylum that I liked. To be honest, it's my age that made it watchable. You don't get it? Well, I grew up with all those old eighties and seventies horrors and have seen the cheapies this surely reminded me of the copycats out there still unavailable or know to be cheesy.

If you watch the Blu Ray cover then you should already know that this isn't going to be a horror that stand up to today's standards. It just looked like those Italian covers back then. And it even reminded me of Shocker (1989)

For an Asylum flick it contained rather good effects although some were a bit laughable like the police car catching fire or a girl being ripped in two. Nevertheless, it even contained nudity a few times and a sexy scene were one of the girls actually goes naked but not full frontal. The cheesiness lays in the fact that the possessed ones have red glowing eyes and the good ones blue glowing eyes. The ghosts towards the end are pure CGI and of course the CGI used throughout this flick is one of the cheapest kind.

Newbies in the genre will hate this flick, and it shows but old school B flick lovers or cheesy horror geeks should pick this up. I enjoyed it.

Gore 1,5/5 Nudity 1/5 Effects 2/5 Story 2/5 Comedy 0/5
