What the H-E-Double hockey sticks was that?
Let me say that I am a lover and supporter of independent films and those filmmakers who take their vision and create it for the world to see. So sometimes people are limited by their budget thus creating "low-budget fare". I respect that. What I don't respect are people who would make video projects with their friends and charge people their hard-earned money to purchase and then be tortured by having to watch that video project.
That is exactly what Intercessor is...a video project. When I state video, I mean "let's grab our camcorder, go out in the yard, and sell it as a movie" type of video project. This was advertised as a sequel to a guilty pleasure of mine: "Rock and Roll Nightmare". When I heard about this, I could not wait to see John Triton's continuing battles against the forces of darkness. What I did not expect to see was Thor fighting with hard rubber swords and inaudible dialogue. Thor's battle against the tree branch when he meets up with the witch was just not as cool or fun as...
...when he wrestled the giant rubber 'Bub from Rock and Roll Nightmare. It reminded me of that scene in Ed Wood when Bela Lugosi had to pull the creature's arms onto himself to make it look like he was being attacked because the prop malfunctioned. It looked JUST LIKE THAT!
The lighting, sound, and editing were amateurish. And don't even get me started on the costumes. From the five minute point on, I was trying to get over the budgetary constraints but the film's flaws just got worse and worse. I could barely make it through the film as hard as I tried and I just could not stomach viewing the deleted scenes. I can only imagine how BAD they were in a horrible film like this. I mean Hard Rock Zombies is Citizen Kane compared to this mess. What's worse...
...the ending showed that Harry had become evil and was the new leader of the underworld to set up a sequel. Please, please, please...no sequel.
Do yourself a favor, if you are a fan of Rock and Roll Nightmare and you want to see this sequel, just go back and watch the first one. Hopefully the Triton legacy will not be ruined for you as well.
In conclusion, I will go the Highlander 2 route with this film and just pretend that I didn't see it and that it doesn't exist.
