Billionaire Clarence Martel has everything money can buy, but not everything he wants, namely immortality. Seeking to fulfill an ancient dark prophecy, Mr. Martel approaches Mikey, a gambler in way over his head, with a simple proposition. In exchange for a one night job, Mikey's debt will be wiped clean. Having no other way of clearing his debt, Mikey and his brother Paul agree to do the job. In an old abandoned house, they perform a ritual known as the "Drawing of the Shadows" and unwittingly unleash the demons of the darkness, the Shadow People. Forced off the road by a storm, four unsuspecting friends seek shelter in the house and fall into the deadly trap already set in motion. If they want to survive, they must play a terrifying game of cat and mouse with the house's murderous inhabitants. Written by Keith Parker

Beware the Shadow People.
8 February 2015 | by CorblimeyGuvnorsSee all my reviews

This film starts with a "Not rated" warning. They need not have bothered. Unless the American rating system is so strict that Disney films would struggle to pass the board in a rated version !!!! If this was to play the UK, this would be 15 rated tops. Gore is minimum and there is nothing else that I believe would warrant this being "not rated".

"What's it about?" I hear you cry. Two brothers go to a house at the request of a billionaire to settle $50,000 gambling debt. They need to unleash the shadow people by performing a Satanic ritual. It is not long before the Shadow People are on the loose. They are soon joined by four "teens" all must fight for survival.

Not a total stinker, some of the effects of the shadow people were nice and whenever they were on screen there was an air of menace. However they could have done with more screen time. Acting was OK, and there is a bit of gore. There is endless talking and it seems to take an age to get anywhere.

An OK effort on a very low budget
