Storyline

Across a dark street in Los Angeles, a beautiful young woman is being brutally assaulted by an abusive boyfriend. Young lawyer Jeff Mills rushes to the woman's defense - and crosses into a world of unimaginable evil. On the surface, the young woman, Miranda Reed, is a dream come true, the perfect lover, a miracle healer and a soulmate. Before two days have passed, Jeff lives a real-life nightmare, an encounter so intense, death is almost merciful. Because Jeff learns that Miranda is a fugitive from the witches coven (to which she belongs) and they want her back. Back in time for a human sacrifice by the Unholy Night of the Winter Solstice. Written by Jeff Smee

Terrific!
24 August 2000 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

An unjustly neglected horror entry. Right from the start, it has the narrative pull of a good mystery; there are intriguing characters and one genuinely sensual sex scene. In the second half, it seems to be getting more ordinary, but then comes up with a stunning twist, worthy of an Agatha Christie. Overall, a well-acted, atmospherically directed, smart, creepy little thriller. (***)
