Storyline

In Paris, two workers find a hidden chamber while digging the underground of the Saint Jean André Church. They collect the valuable objects in the spot but they are attacked by a creature.

Jack takes a cab to his boarding house and Carol is attacked and beheaded by a Gargoyle at her apartment.

And not in the good way!

I saw the title of this and thought "hey lets give it a go" and saw Eric Balfour's name and that gave me hope.

Sadly not as the movie started it wasone of those ones where they use sounds and shrieks to mask the fact you never actually see anything in the first hour of the movie. But ok that is Scifi Channel standard so I am willing to forgoe the special effects but as soon as the French cop opened his mouth and began speaking in Franglais it was truly a tragic French accent more akin to Renee in Allo Allo and made the film just a joke.

Not withstanding the puerile acting and storyline, characterization, plot and almost everything else just made this an awful exercise in low budget pants horror and even Nick Mancuso looked like he was in it for the pay cheque!

It is not even worth the old film on a wet Sunday afternoon fair!
