Storyline

When mechanic Jeff Obold meets the wealthy and mysterious Bruno Rubin, he is exposed for the first time to the finer things in life. But Jeff soon discovers the source of Rubin's power: a caged creature called a "Darkling," which possesses the power to create incredible wealth for the person who will pledge unending "companionship." Now, as Jeff sinks further and further into the blackness of a soul sold to the devil, he will discover there is a high price to pay for the fulfillment of his dreams. The cast of this USA Network Original Movie includes Oscar-winner F. Murray Abraham (Amadeus, Star Trek: Insurrection) and sultry Nina Siemaszko (Wild Orchid II: Two Shades of Blue).

I can't believe I actually rented this garbage.
13 December 2003 | by deemSee all my reviews

I have nothing positive to say about this "film". Don't see it! The acting is so bad I could smell "the bold and the beautiful". What happened to F.M. Abraham. This fine actor has lowered himself into the pits of "the story" in a porn. The darkling a fallen baby angel. Give me a break. aaargh!!!!!
