Trivia

Astaroth is named as the devil and male in this film. Historically, Astaroth was the Canaanite goddess of love and was known as Ishtar to the Babylonians. Her name appears in the Bible to generically refer to pagan goddesses. She appears as a demon in the TV show Blood Ties (2007) and in PSI Factor: Chronicles of the Paranormal: Sacrifices (1999).

Not evil... but definitely not that good!
15 April 2013 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

This was clearly a pilot for a proposed TV series, but it seems all three American TV networks passed on making it a series. Watching it, it's pretty easy to see why there were no takers. The producers probably thought they were on a hot trend, since the movie takes elements from the recent and popular movies "Rosemary's Baby" and "The Exorcist". But this execution is sorely lacking in thrills and coherence. After an okay five minute opening taking place in the past, the movie proceeds to focus the next forty or so minutes on a romance between Elyssa Davalos and Dack Rambo, which is utterly boring when the two actors are not acting extremely obnoxious. Then the movie abruptly changes track, so much so that I was often bewildered - it seems that A LOT of key scenes of explanation are missing in the movie's second half! B movie fans will probably be disappointed that Richard Lynch is given almost nothing to do in the entire running time. It's no surprise that the movie is apparently in the public domain, since I can't see any strong fan base for this movie that would keep it in the conscious of the copyright holders.
