This slice of early 80's Horror could be a guilty pleasure for many. A real Ham & Cheese type of movie (hammy acting, cheesy movie) about the second coming of Lucifer in the guise of a high school introvert being pursued by reincarnated forms of the arc-angels in a small town in upstate New York. Director LaLoggia (who would go on to direct the far more spooky Lady in White) has a flair for detail as well as the absurd. There are dozens of throwaway characters, a very unattractive heroine (IMO), some awful 80's style "special effects", zombies that look like they fell asleep in a bowl of oatmeal, and one of the funniest death scenes in the annals of horror when a possessed gym teacher kills a student by throwing a dodgeball at him.
Despite the shortcomings, it is a guilty pleasure and moves at a nice pace (and an excellent soundtrack). La Loggia does illustrate a nice touch in some scenes with a creepy atmosphere (particularly the death scene involving the character acting as Jesus during the play commemorating the Passion). As the movie progresses however, it does give the audience the impression of being a "Christian horror movie", by becoming overtly preachy. It left me with the feeling that I had watched a movie produced by the same folks who made Omega Code, only with more violence. As for the ending, well.....laughably bad. But take it with a dose of salt.
If you rent it based on the creepy cover art and expect a zombie filled, gory horror movie you'll be sorely disappointed. Go in with the expectation of watching a cheesy piece of brain candy and it'll be far more tolerable.
