We gave it an F

When nubile Hannah (Ramsey) returns home to find her mom, she turns out — whoops! — to be the key to fulfilling a bloody cult prophecy. Or something. This desperate effort to reanimate a fetid franchise trots out every conceivable schlock convention — abandoned hospitals, run-down motels, dead phone lines, sepia-toned killer midgets — all to no avail. The end result is wholly incoherent and feels about 666 minutes too long.

Reel Goodies

(1:18) Movie ends.

The Last Detail

Fittingly, Keach appeared in a 1995 ”Touched by an Angel” episode entitled ”Sympathy for the Devil.”
