Storyline

Writer/Director Dante Tomaselli merges two disturbing story lines into this visually arresting chiller. The first involves a band of five teens that escape from a drug rehabilitation center to cash in on a questionable promise of salvation from the psychopathic Reverend Salo Jr.. Leader of the pack Luck, fueled on major hallucinogens, transports the gang to the reverend's isolated house where the basis of the second plot has been set simultaneously. Here lives Grace, Salo Jr.'s daughter, whom he and his equally bizarre wife have enslaved through enforced drug addiction and psychic brainwashing. Grace's only salvation appears to be by the guidance of her paternal grandfather Reverend Salo Sr.. But this hope is quickly jeopardized when it becomes revealed that his comforting visitations may be being made from beyond the grave. Regardless, it is through Grace's visions involving him that she learns of her parent's demonic pastimes, which include abduction, murder, and possibly worse. ... Written by <LDmediacorp@aol.com>

Bunk for billy goats
29 June 2003 | by macabro357See all my reviews

Starring the Amazing Kreskin and a whole bunch of 20-something headbangers that I've never heard of before, this discombobulated mess was recommended to me by a friend. After seeing this nonsense, I'm not so sure I want to be friends with her anymore. (laughs)

Is it trying to be arty or is it in serious need of editing ?? Gawd only knows... They either had:

a.) a moron for an editor or...

b.) no editor at all

It's just a bunch of scenes strung together with little or no coherence or planning, without even taking the viewing audience into account. In fact, it looks like an amateur film disguised as a professional film, disguised as an amateur film. (laughing) Thank Christ, it's only 75 minutes long.

If I was a film school teacher, I'd give it a F for being incomplete, but since I'm only one of many lowly reviewers around here, I'll give it a 1 out of 10 for being incomplete.
