All guts and real gory!

During the opening credits, we see a low key car chase over the gloomy tones of "Filter's" "Hey Man Nice Shot", which sets the pace for the gore fest before us. Still clueless as to who's the bad guy, we find the guilty looking Brayker (William Sadler), stumble into a whore house in the middle of a desert, on a stormy night. Soon to follow, is The Collector (Billy Zane), with a kind hearted southern drawl, and his squeaky clean smile. Brayker is trying to hide something, and we don't know what it is, but The Collector want's it pretty bad. By the time The town sheriff arrives to sort things out, we're quite certain that Brayker is the villain. It's not until The Collector punches a hole through the sheriff's head that we begin to see what the film has to offer. The next hour and a half is filled with enough blood and gore to make even the pickiest horror fan stand and salute. Billy Zane is awesome as a mid level demon trying to move up (or down) the ladder and William Sadler, who normally plays smaller rolls, is a believable hero and carries the film to it's gruesome end. I am a horror fan, and this film has consistently remained in my top five since it's release.

Entertainingly cheesy film

Chased through the desert, a loner hiding out with a group of strangers at a remote boarding house finds the demonic emissary trailing him has brought along demonic helpers to retrieve a sacred artifact he holds and tries to protect everyone from the dangerous being.

This here was quite the enjoyable and entertaining effort. One of the better features here is the fact that there's an exceptionally fun atmosphere present which comes from the rather high quantity of action in this one. The opening car crash makes it go off on a great note and gives this a fine fiery finish, while the big revelation scene at the boardinghouse in front of everyone is a spectacular highlight which features the incredible initial reveal as well as the resulting gunfight to clear him out as going for the fun of the creature attacks with the beasts launching attacks themselves which gives this one the frenzied action and over-the-top scenarios needed for this kind of effort. The later scenes of them clearing out the demons attempting to break in past their defenses leads to even more good times with the gun-battles clearing them out of the building, while the scenes down in the underground mines makes great use of the atmospheric location for some really fun and thrilling encounters, while the latter half features some even greater encounters with the possessed coming after them from all angles in the building which all makes for a non-stop offering of big action scenes. As well, the large amount of action here means this one goes for some rather impressive amounts of physical effects for not only the demonic creatures but also the deformities of the people possessed by the creatures that give this one some really graphic bloodshed and gore that's needed here to give this one the crazy, out-of-control comic book feel which really works so well here. These here make for a great time even though it does have a few flaws. The main element against this one is the fact that there are some minor subplots that do hold this one back in the middle and it drags the pacing down. Spending the majority of the time dropping the physical tortures for mental temptation is quite out-of-place for what's going on to the rest of the group, and these really drag out this section. Likewise, there's also the fact that the heavy- handed religious backstory which is dropped so late into this one that it really comes off as such an afterthought and could've been brought up in the storyline sooner instead of placing it near the end. These here are what hold this one back.

Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language, Nudity and off-screen sex sounds.

I totally agree.

This movie is great. A shocker, Billy Zane had a few good movies. This is one of them. The story, the effects, the back story, character interaction all work. I would agree. Take a few moments of your life to sit back and enjoy a great horror film. I think find something in the film that you will enjoy.
