When Max dies in an accident, he goes straight to hell. But the devil Barney makes him an offer: if he manages to get three innocent youths to sell him their souls in the next two months, he may stay on earth. Max accepts, and returns to earth, equipped with special powers. However his task is harder than expected, especially when 7 years old Tobi demands that he marry his mother. Written by Tom Zoerner

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia During the UK 'video nasty' scare of the 1980's anti-censorship journalist Liam T. Sanford wrote a false letter petitioning against this film to the Police Watch Committee, claiming the movie to be 'sick and horrific', in an attempt to discredit local police forces and expose their lack of film knowledge. Sure enough the film was briefly seized by officers from video retailers before being hastily returned to the shelves. See more »

Quotes Max Devlin: [referring to Toby's sudden hostility] Some swell marriage we're gonna have! If he hates me, he'll be impossible to live with.
Barney Satin: You don't have to worry about that. The slightest hint to Agent Hargraves and it's all over. You gonna synchronize your watch?
Max Devlin: They all signed. I'm free! Aren't I?
Barney Satin: Yes, you are, but by midnight, they belong to me.
Max Devlin: Not until the natural end of their lives. That's what you said.
Barney Satin: Point of fact: I lied. I need them now.
Max Devlin: Oh, no! Barney, please! I couldn't have done it if I'd known that! He's a great kid. They're all great kids, but that kid, kill him and you kill her!
Barney Satin: Unfortunately, her soul does not belong to me. You win some, you lose some. But then again, you have your precious life.
