Missed Opportunity

This one had potential to be a quirky, unearthly combination of the supernatural and gangsters. Think Innocent Blood (1992). Even done in a low-budget hack job it could have been quite a hoot. But...

The lead actor is quite a dead-serious voice-over embarrassment and the gangsters are less than Comic-Book enticing. Only the Demon from Hell and his creepy demeanor and slaughterhouse shenanigans add any fun to this, as the family in peril backdrop subtext is weak and mishandled to the point of distraction. It has a good "Twilight Zone" twist but it doesn't save it from Indie Movie indifference.

Worth viewing for the better, brutal parts and Horror Movie splatter. However it is the smarmy child protection and the "I will not raise a punk" inclusions that stall this one from becoming an overtly outrageous display of Grindhouse gory glory.

Bad plot, even worse dialogues.

This is one of the worst movies I have watched in the last months along with "Perfect Hideout" (which may have even been worse, because it also had a much worse plot on top of it all). At no point at all could I feel in any way connected to any character in the film or even feel anything for them. Be it love or hate. I could only feel sorry for them for having to act in such a bad movie. If you have a bit of taste, it's practically unwatchable. When Ving Rhames and his son say their "I love you"s just before or after Rhames executes some former associate of his... you can just roll your eyes at the amateur-like writing and directing. Enough is enough. Make up your own mind. But don't say I didn't warn you.

crazy drug dealer turns violent

The movie is about drug dealer Taz, whom has a wife and family that don't know he's a drug dealer. He has a separate house and girl on the side. He wants to be King of the Avenue, like his father was before he was killed. Enter the devil that makes him an offer. He sends a demon whom needs a loved one's body to exist in, so Taz uses his father's body, Norman. So Norman comes back and all these really terrible and gory things happen to the other bosses. They meet violent ends paving the way for Taz.

Then at the end there is the twist ending. The question is: was there really a demon or was Taz committing all the murders? The film explains it in the end.

FINAL VERDICT: About the only thing the movie has going for it was some cool death scenes and blood. Plus Ving Rhames is just plain cool. Worth checking out if you can catch it on cable.
