Enjoyable enough but still flawed
20 October 2018 | by kannibalcorpsegrinderSee all my reviews

Trying to make ends meet, a struggling college student takes a job evicting delinquent tenants with his girlfriends' father ends up unleashing a supernatural curse on him and his family that soon turns into a race to stop the vengeful karmic demon following him to stop its effects.

This was an enjoyable enough effort. When this one does work is due to the series of supernatural actions that are undertaken due to the creature's curse coming into fruition. This one tends to favor the style of supernatural actions that could possibly be a coincidence to psychologically torment the one who's been afflicted by the curse rather than out-and-out killing them, starting off with the idea of just bad days to non-threatening events that strike them at that point. From the initial start by having friends see him at his lowest and having his car destroyed by accident to seeing his boss fall off the roof onto a running table-saw or the confrontation with the owner at the supposedly abandoned house in the middle of the woods which is a genuinely creepy sequence here, the film offers up some rather enjoyable sequences that provide some fun sequences. The fact that it's designed to break him down gives this a nice buffer to provide a variety of tactics here to generate that feeling throughout here which by coming out of nowhere tend to give this some rather solid suspense throughout here. The confrontation in the abandoned house also provides some solid fun as the supernatural antics are quite prominent here as well, leading to some enjoyable moments here which are what hold this one up for the most part over its flaws. The biggest problem with the film is the manner in which the curse is brought forth. The entire matter is an official affair that's taken up with different authorities on levels higher than his, so to have him be the target is entirely too convenient and simple especially for such a nonsense reason that's entirely well within his authority to perform. To them put the entire resources of the curse onto him because of that is rather simplistic and unnecessary by the fact that it never reveals anything about what it's supposed to be doing this for, rendering much of the scares here quite confusing as to how the curse itself is spread. As well, the idea of the curse designed to break him down psychologically means that far more often nothing here really puts him in danger as it's more about those around him which break him down so there's a slight disconnect from the curse in that regard. The last issue is a weak finale that has no bearings on the curse, plays out in an entirely confusing manner and just ends without any kind of real resolution with how it plays out. These here are what hold this one down overall.

Rated Unrated/R: Graphic Violence and Language.
