Storyline

The Devil is a woman! She is on the run and being pursued by God's "chaser", (who is an ex-lover coincidently). The chase drops her in the lap of an ongoing birthday party where shy Maggie is on a blind date with equally shy David. As the Devil inhabits Maggie's body the fun starts. First she proves that there is no one that she cannot offend, most especially her girlfriends when she takes their boyfriends upstairs for some killer (no shit) sex. As the bodys pile up the chaser arrives. Lovers tiff doesn't begin to go into the arguing that ensues as the plot reveals that the devil is pissed because she is jealous of her boyfriends over-enthusiastic flirting. Every woman in the film wants to pound our chaser into pulp as his obnoxiousness escalates. Also not to be messed are the crop of Nuns with rocket launchers and semi-automatic weaponry. Quick trips in and out of deep space, bodies in the bathtub, and restaurants where the food attack the patrons. A must see, must rent, and must own... Written by Tari <shipley@dis.org>

Great Movie to watch with Friends
30 April 2005 | by krslaneSee all my reviews

So funny. I always thought that the main character was very funny. I laughed when he kept on saying - - and there was God with those polaroids again. I always thought it was odd that she always wanted to dress in a devil costume. I think my friends have a new perspective on films. I swear I have made everyone I know watch it. Great movie. Like a B rated Horror Film. I love how the person who saves the day waits until almost 3/4 of the movie is over to ever appear. And the movie seems like he should have been the main character. A zapper that puts them at any place. I love that it is good (semi - good inventor...of a very much used product of today) vs. evil (semi - evil possessed devil woman who's in love with the good guy) who could go wrong? I can't wait until it goes on DVD. For extra features.
