Did You Know?


The Nerf "popper" that Jen fires at Anubis was actually found at the barn above the doorway and was only going to be used in an "additional" scene but the director liked it so much he expanded the gag and kept it in. See more »


Wheezer: Do you have that movie with the, flying demon baby that attacks the winnabago and eats that hot chic in the shower who's all naked?
Paul: Nope, its out.
Wheezer: It's out? Aw, man... that movie is always out!
Paul: Wheeze, it's on almost every night on cable.
Wheezer: Yeah but I wanted to watch it now.

Better then the first if only because it has nothing to do with it
5 May 2005 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

Why the distributors choose to rename this indy horror/comedy as a sequel to "Ancient Evil" (a VERY crappy movie) and possibly discourage those few that would actually take a chance on this one is beyond me. Thankfully this has jack-all to do with the first one. In a prologue set in ancient times, Anubis is beheaded (in a scene that had me chiming that "There can only be One") In the present day, five friends unleash the god of the dead when they begin dabbling in the occult. The movie comes off as a sub-standard horror version of "Clerks" with a splash of "the Craft". Not a good movie by any standards but I seldom got bored with it, that sound count for something at least. Even though I didn't really care for the soundtrack in the least.

Eye Candy: Noel Francomano exposes one boob (the left one if you must know)

My Grade: D+
