The plot is thus-a young woman named Diella survives a rapist attack and her assailant is killed. Years later, Diella is a paranormal investigator who joined the field because she always feels the ghost of her attacker nearby. As it turns out, he somehow marked her and is trying to possess her body, creating an act of ‘pure evil unleashed’ in the process.
As I said, this is an average movie. There are some minor plotholes, and some characters who just badly need to die before they even made it to the concept stage. How this movie works, however, is the relationship the two main characters, Diella and her brother Mitch. Mitch doesn’t believe in the paranormal, but he feels guilty because he wasn’t around to help Diella during her attack years ago. She, on the other hand, believes her brother is a chronic alcoholic and tends to disregard his help, even when it’s perfectly logical.
However, this movie has a few flaws, primarily subplots that go nowhere. Somehow an evil cult sprang out of this movie. Why? Because they think it would be cool to see Diella possessed I guess. There’s another subplot with one of the investigators becoming a cynic, and it doesn’t pay off in any way. Plus the movie has a weird fascination of inserting grainy effects during spooky scenes, which look overall jarring. The ending, however, is pretty interesting.
FINAL GRADE: 2 out of 5. Average, but it’s more than what I usually expect from Asylum Studios.
And that concludes my four movie package. I will never have to review another movie from Asylum Studios again. Whew, what a nightmare! Hm...what’s this unopened box near the Christmas tree? Another present? That’s so swe-AAAAHHHHHHH!
