The inventor of the condom-- now God's bounty hunter- is tasked with tracking down and capturing the Devil, who has possessed the body of a high school wallflower in order to feed on human souls via sex.
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

Shrill horror comedy
The Devil, in the form of a glowing fireball, enters the body of a shy young girl and turns her into a nasty shrew who seduces men and then sucks out their souls, leaving them as skeletons. Luckily (?) the "Chaser", a devil hunter who's been following his target through time and space, arrives at the house where all this takes place and teams up with the girlfriend of one of the victims to stop the Devil and save everyone's souls. This irreverent but largely one-joke comedy (good girl becomes bad girl) starts out as a likable film, but quickly becomes shrill and tiresome. And frankly, I found the running gag of women constantly punching and kicking men about as funny as the reverse gag, of men constantly punching and kicking women, would have been - which is to say, not very. Go see the similarly titled but much better "Highway To Hell" instead. (*1/2)
