A bit dated now but great stuff!

I've got to be honest here: I first saw this movie in my teens and loved it, so I might be a bit biased here, ignoring it's flaws. Just saw it again, over 10 years later, and I gotta say, while it didn't have the 'wow' effect it gave me before, It still holds up as a decent movie. This movie is fast paced and just crammed with awesome ideas that sometimes work, and sometimes could have been used more effectively.

What do we have?

- An insane serial killer - This guy just oozes evil, amazing bad guy.

- A very cute psychic - man did I have a crush on her!

- Plenty of mysterious happenings and scares (though not very scary for seasoned moviegoers)

- Cool action sequences. That ceiling fan scene is so awesome.

- Satanic superpowers. How is that not super cool?

- The pacing is great, with lots of interesting scenes.

- Nice touches of humor now and then.

So What could be better?

- The ending is a bit unsatisfying.

- Things could be bigger and more epic.

- While decent, Lou Diamond Philips could be replaced with many other actors, and there are more charismatic ones out there.

- Seeing it again, it wasn't that scary, but I remember that it was the first time. Could be scarier though, I guess.

- If you analyze things too much, there are lots of small plot holes.

This movie is like an older, more low budget version of 'End of Days' with Arnold Schwarzenegger (which I liked as well). If what I told you sounds interesting, this movie is a great way to spice up a boring Sunday evening!

Under-appreciated 1990's thriller.

Lou Diamond Phillips stars with Jeff Kober co-starring in this Robert Resnikoff horror. This work was committed to film in a time when LDP's career still could have gone either way. Unfortunately, at the time of this writing, Mr. Phillips' career would need the railroading of Peter Jackson to get it back on track.

However, this is a quite entertaining (if over-christianized) enterprise. Done well before Se7en, yet reminiscent of the feeling of heavy atmosphere, this

endeavor passes the Fiend's tests. It is entertaining, has quality story line, good execution, and heavy atmosphere. The film quality does leave a lot to be desired, but it's not the same low quality as you expect from your typical "B" flick, nor does it bear the "live" feeling of a Made for TV movie, thankfully.

There are moments of poor performance, and a few slow spots, but it will spook you and give you the definite feeling of being watched.

At least, it did me and therefore rates a 6.2/10 from...

the Fiend :.

Eerie vibe of early 90's Horror. I dug it.

Regular Horror/Thriller that has some decent scenes for the Horror fans. First, it deals with the devil and possession after death. Lou Diamond Phillips is a man tormented by his past and his belief in God is in predicament. He thinks his father didn't deserve to die. In fact, that event causes a series of situations like his mother turning crazy. Could he find the serial killer he is after to? Could he solve the mystery of the First Power?

Watch it and find it. Not a good Horror flick but sure it's entertaining. My only beef is that it doesn't have a creepy atmosphere or a dark setting; the plot asks for it! Also, there's a point where it's necessary to have some Horror related scenes but the movie focuses more on drama and thriller.

Lou Diamond Philips' performance is the best thing about the movie. Mrs. Griffith also delivers a nice performance and helps a lot that she's very beautiful and charming.

Delivers some chilling scenes but relies on the dramatic side more. Be warned you could be bored if you are looking for a straight Horror movie. Still it has a creepy vibe and very well done plot.

Give it a chance.
