Painfully slow and cheesy horror movie
I want this 90 minutes back from my life and I don't think it's going to happen. For the sake of honesty, the gore and makeup was pretty cool and the demon was cool but the movie is painfully slow for the first three quarters of the movie and the acting, even for a foreign-made movie was really bad and cheesy. If they worked on the story a bit better and organized the scenes and built up the tension more - it could have moved the film along better than it did. The first half of the movie was like watching paint dry. It's just patches of gore tossed in here and there to keep you from shutting off the movie. The gun fights were ridiculous. Let's mug at the camera and each other while guys are shooting assault rifles at us - funny ridiculous! Could have been made into a good movie with some rewrites, better directing, better scene cuts and better acting. Still not sure what happened even at the end of the movie so if anyone figures it out, can you let me know?
