Great performance by Combs, wish there had been more films
24 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

Anton Mordrid (Jeffery Combs) is a sorcerer who is sent to Earth to protect us from practitioners of the evil arts. He keeps his cover in New York City as a landlord of a high rise with a number of tenants, including NYPD consultant Samantha Hunt (Yvette Nipar). Naturally, evil arrives and it comes in the form of Kabal (Brian Thompson), who uses minions around the world to gather the elements needed to perform a ceremony that will allow his followers to escape another dimension and attack Earth. Revisited this one after -- gasp! -- 20 years and it holds up as a fun fantasy-adventure. At the time it was one of Charles Band's more expensive Full Moon productions ($2 million!) and the script by C. Courtney Joyner actually deserves more money. It is obviously not shot in NYC and has a pretty short running time. Also, the climax lacks the "woman in peril" element the film seems to be setting up. The film's highlight is probably the stop motion work of David Allen and his crew (the end showdown in a museum where T-Rex skeleton takes on a Woolly Mammoth skeleton would make Harryhausen proud). Combs, as always, gives a great performance and it is shame Band, who co-directed with his father Albert Band, never continued on with this series.
