Sexton: [to the priest] You see father, God is poor. God is hungry, God is sick, God is repulsive. God is weak, that's why he's good. He's got nothing to offer, nothing to lose.

A Weird and Confused Low Budget Movie
9 April 2004 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

During a storm, a gargoyle falls off a church over a priest, killing him. On the next day, the scientist Vladimir Spratz (Ron Lea) finds a piece of the gargoyle and brings it to his laboratory. Meanwhile, the sexton of the church (Tom Rack) looks for the scientist's girlfriend, the artist Flora (Catherine Colvey) asking her to restore the broken piece. Vladimir makes a genetic discover and many persons begin to die in the city. This low movie is very weird and has a confused screenplay. There are some interesting parts, the pronunciation of the cast is very clear, but something is missing to say that it is a good movie. Anyway, it had the quality of keeping me hooked on the screen until the last disappointing scene. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): `O Poder Das Trevas' (`The Power of the Darkness')
