Dating back to the time of Jesus Christ, an ancient relic known as the Loculus has been fought over by the forces of light and darkness down the centuries. Created in 50 A.D., the wood panels of the Loculus are emblazoned with two images: the Ankh symbol - a looped crucifix, and the Caduceus - a rod entwined with two serpents. On its perilous journey through history, the Loculus was further adorned with more arcane mystical imagery including pentagrams, hexagrams, a crucified serpent, the naked human form divine, and a hermaphrodite, and many have tried to unlock the secret of the sacred artefact, a secret only a chosen few know contains profound and overwhelming ramifications for mankind. In 1299, a Jewish alchemist's attempts to unravel the enigma ended in disaster. In 1710, Sir Isaac Newton, discoverer of the laws of gravity and a foremost member of the Masonic Order of the Knights Templar, also strove to answer the riddle.

Alexander Walker is dead. Could the makers of this idiocy have taken advantage of that fact?
As you've probably gathered, the only reason any hard earned pennies found thier way into Blockbusters till is the pull of a good review from The Don himself.
Picture the scene: Jaded office worker trudges into video store searching for that most elusive of beasts....an enjoyable, thought provoking piece of cinematography (and I'm not talking Forrest Gump here!). Imagine the look of delight which suffuses his face when he espies a comment from The Greatest Film Reviewer Ever, the late, much lamented Alexander Walker. This comment, prominent on the boxcover says " A rare thing indeed, an intelligent and thought provoking film".
The jaded office worker huuries through the transaction, glides home and after preparing the ritual accompaniaments (Coca -Cola and tinned Ravioli) settles down to be entertained and provoked. Not bad for less than a fiver!
A-ha I hear you cry. A-ha indeed. Banal, ill concieved drivel is a polite decription of this piece of excreta.
So, did the film makers take advantage of Alexander Walkers death with a piece of judicious self promotion. Sadly we will never know for sure if it wasn't just senile dementia that cheated our unlucky hero.
