Not as painful as you'd think...
8 October 2012 | by BezenbySee all my reviews

...but it is pretty awful. A beefy (fat) cop is sent to investigate a break in at a warehouse unaware that a leather clad devil worshipper is trying to summon some demon or other using a red diamond, which she has lost due to her own stupidity. The cop has a similar diamond around his neck, for reasons that become brain-damagingly clear later, and is followed by two demon type things that appeared through a pentagram at the start of the film. Sprinkle in some footage from Ghoulies, some bad acting, daft optical effects and some comedy and you've got a film that you'll only watch when completely lost for anything else.

It's bad, this one, but not totally worthless. The cheapness keeps it going and it's directed by the guy who made the great Chopping Mall and the not-bad 967-Evil 2. The leather clad chick eases the pain a lot, as well as the bad acting. Very little blood and gore for a film of this type though.
