Classic Case of Good Soundtrack...Sub-par Movie
20 June 2018 | by mitchgibbySee all my reviews

I was excited for this movie. I'm a fan of Andy, had a fun character actor cast, especially McDowell as the devil himself. That idea alone sounds awesome, but the movie was full of good ideas, but very bad execution. I didn't really hate it, there were parts I liked, not enough to save it. The music was definitely the highlight. The movie coulda been so much more, but it really wasn't. Shame.
