Quotes

Voiceover: I seek Allah's protection from the savage Satan. There is no god but Allah, who lives eternally and takes constant care of his creations. Never a moment of unawareness or slumber overtakes him. To him belongs everything in the heavens and the earth. Who can intercede with him, except in accordance with his will? He knows their past and their future. No one attains any knowledge, except as he wills. His dominions encompass the heavens and the earth and ruling them never burdens him. ...

Killing the audience sloooooooooooowly
7 September 2009 | by udar55See all my reviews

Young Tommy and his sister are dealing with the death of their mother. After Tommy visits a psychic in order to contact his mother, the psychic - who is actually a vessel for Satan - shows up at their house as their new servant and, so slowly, all hell begins to break loose. This black magic flick from the director of Barry Prima vehicle THE WARRIOR is often described as an "Indonesian version of PHANTASM." Well, don't get your hopes up - it is only similar to PHANTASM in that it steals a few plots points. No Indonesian Tall Man or flying orbs so hopes are easily squashed. It also rips off SALEM'S LOT and the Langella Dracula. Unfortunately, nothing happens for the first hour. And I mean nothing! When the dead finally do rise, it is during the last half hour and, despite their cool looking design, it still sucks. If anything, this might be the only film you see where the devil is beaten down by guys chanting, "Allah akbar!" (or perhaps they were chanting for RETURN OF THE JEDI's Admiral Ackbar?) Man, I would hate to be the guy who I saw pay over $80 for the Japanese VHS on eBay for this.
