This movie is basically about a psycho killer priest who wears disguises & kills sinners who he recruited to a class reunion. He gets the ability to kill from an evil child. A lot of people compared this to the Omen because of the child that is involved in the film, but to me it reminded me more of the movie Frailty in terms of its religious message. Its not about a boy taking over ala Damien but of a person who wears some really creepy disguises to kill people who are sinners in (well in some cases) hideous ways all in the name of God.
There are some pretty intense murder scenes in particular one in the ladies room. There is one terrific gore scene & some other cool things to recommend. The acting is ok, as is the story ..pretty simple - nothing that can easily be confusing if you follow it from start to finish. Some would say it isn't clear why these murders are happening to this group of people but if you read the text at the beginning & the end it is clear to a certain extent. There is a meaning to the killings. And he is killing those who have sinned.
It is not a classic by any stretch of the imagination but it was a credible sincere effort. If you are a fan of films Crucible of Terror, Horror High , Horror Hospital and other low budget independent titles that companies like Code Red, Scorpion Releasing or Synapse Films would release , then Id recommend it easily.
Dont expect too much and you'll be rewarded.
Code Red released this with the disclaimer about not being the best transfer 'we did the best with the elements we found & released it due to popular demand" type of thing
I found the transfer to be pretty viewable & despite the reel changes where it gets really grainy like something from Alpha Video, you can tell Code Red tried to make this as good as they could get. Id get this version over some of the other versions out there..
So while this film isn't recommended for the general public who focus on mainstream titles like Avatar, Iron Man etc..this is for those who do have a passion for the independent low budget horror film fan. I was curious enough to buy it and was pleased with it..
