A man accidentally runs down a young girl and has a curse placed on him by the girl's father, an occultist.

He goes to a spiritualist for help in fighting the curse.

A boring movie by any stretch.

Lot's of talking. Little action. Uh, guys, isn't this a horror film?

The blond is hot though. Due can't act. and walks around without a shirt.

Don't.

Yer doughy.

The basic problem with this movie is that it goes on and on with nothing really happening.

Nothing scary.

Nothing interesting.
