Storyline

Tmi and Allie seek shelter in a remote desert compound after becoming lost and stranded. A strange Manson-like character, Preacher (Drago), reluctantly allows them inside with strict orders to be gone by morning and not wander "where you are not invited." At first, Preacher and his mail-order wife Oksana (Nedeljakova) deny the faint screams and cries that emanate from one of the crumbling outbuildings. When Allie sneaks outside to investigate, she discovers that she and Tim have stumbled onto a bizarre cult worshiping an entity that may -- or may not -- dwell inside a haunted little boy.

Movie review:Remember in 1984 a scary movie came out called "Children of the Corn"? Keep it that way, this movie will not remind you at all of it and you will be upset that you can not gain back the time lost after viewing this. The movie starts out with a man returning from the military to a dead family that was killed by the kids. The kid stalks him through a hallway and he plunges out a window to his death since he didn't want to shoot. Reason? No idea, they never touch upon that again, so basically for nothing. The movie is about a couple (Tim Rock & Kelen Coleman) that break down traveling in the middle of nowhere. They walk to the nearest house and stumble upon that of "Preacher" (Billy Drago) who refuses until he hears she is pregnant and allows them to use the phone. When Tim (character name, real creative) finds that they cannot get the car fixed until the next day, they decide to stay with Preacher and his nymphomaniac wife (Barbara Nedeljakova, who was in both Hostel movies for some reason). They are warned not to go outside which of course the wife doesn't listen to and she stumbles onto a child locked in a shed and also some ritualistic alter in a barn. Anyway, she heads back and they decide to leave but can't because some force won't let them. Strange things start happening keeping them from getting out such as slamming doors, flying furniture, etc. Preacher explains the evil is outside and doesn't want them to leave, they just want the unborn baby. Well, they try to get away, which doesn't work out so great, and that's the movie. Aside from one very funny line between the couple, this movie doesn't have much good going for it. One dream showing a corn field, which there is absolutely no explanation or reason for (sound familiar?), the usual demon child, whacko cult family....all clichés are present. It was filmed just fine, editing etc. but really, who cares? The movie is just bad, stay away. 2.5/10 IMDb 3.8 Two good laughs, one intentional is about all the points this gets, and maybe a car accident as well. That is about it.
