they killed it
19 May 2018 | by crownofspratsSee all my reviews

This should be on a double bill with Devil's Candy for some sort of "demonic letdowns" movie night. Just like with that film, a harsher rating is deserved here because they started out with some great elements but ultimately failed to deliver the goods.

Demons? Check. Lots of senseless, demon-induced violence? Check. Simple but effective premise? Check. Dolph Lundgren - aka the most underrated actor of our time - as the demon-hunter?!!

...and they STILL managed to ruin it. I guess you have to know how to actually juggle all these hot coals if you are gonna make something entertaining out of them. In cleverer hands, the kill-premise would have been spun out to its full inventiveness (e.g. what happens if multiple parties are responsible for a death, for instance if two people hold the gun and pull the trigger at the same time, or if someone is eaten alive by ants). Here, we just get exasperated Dolph dealing with stupid authorities and townspeople (led by an out-of-place pastor), trapped between one improbable copout plot move-along and the next. There's also a female FBI agent co-lead, who is mediocre in every sense of the word; she helps bring this pointless little venture to its fizzly non-climax. As with most demon horror, the whole point is to NOT let the demon/antichrist/wizard/evil scientist open up an evil gateway to a dimension of pain and terror...but we all know they are gonna get tantalizingly close, and we're gonna see some great climactic demon gate SFX before the good guys pull the plug on the dimensional resonator or upset the blood rune arrangement or whathaveyou. And yeah, they do the demon gate thing, but it has got to be one of the WEAKEST demon gate climaxes in the genre. Instead, it goes for some 'emotional drama' BS angle and fails on every level.

My advice to the filmmakers is to study the classics. If you mention a demon gate, then you better spend like half of your budget making those last 5-10 minutes of the film literally the coolest part of the film. Otherwise you get an F like these idiots.
