Movie Reviews

Absolutely Hysterical
William Sorensen | Saarbruecken Germany | 10/17/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If you are looking for an intelligent,scary horror film...this is not it. But if you are looking for outrageous camera work, laugh out loud lines and undead nuns, guns, and gasoline...this is flawless. It really shows that the director, writer, and actors had a blast making this and play it totally for laughs. I was on the floor cracking up through most of it and can highly recommend it for those friday night parties when you're with all your friends, had a few drinks , and don't really want to use your brains..."
Creative effect; uncreative movie.

"Now you have to give this movie some credit. There's nothing that stands out in the acting. The characters are stereotypical and, if you ask me, redundant. What stood out to me was the effects. First of all, the fight scenes were rather entertaining. For all you knew, you were watching a John Woo shootout (okay, maybe not John Woo). I'm not one for comparing movies to see how they portray possessed people. But you really gotta give these guys props for their effects and portrayal. It wasn't the typical Linda Blair. It was more like a special effects upgrade to the usual demonic possession.
So if you watch movies just for effects, you'll probably get a kick out of this. The r-rating is for sexuality (no nudity), language and graphic violence. Don't take it seriously. Just enjoy it for what it offers."
The best horror/comedy in years!!

"Think Evil Dead II or Dead-Alive. You'll laugh, puke and scream all at the same time! Though I hear the Trimark DVD is cut by a few seconds (what a moronic waste of production time!) it's still worth picking up. I absolutley love this movie. It's destined to be a cult classic."
