"If only all Hollywood horrors were made this well.."
4 stars

Now I hate the cryptkeeper.. But this is one cool film.

I like Hollywood horror.. I admit that much, but ONLY the ones with originality and some class.

Here it is a story of demons want to rule the world so nick the key which has Jesus' blood in it. You get the drift.

The direction is excellent thanks to Spike Lee alumni Ernest Dickerson,(he was a cinematographer and it shows)
The acting was also one thing that I was surprised at; Billy Zane, Jada Pinkett & William Sadler were all superb, as well as the supporting cast (CCH Pounder, Dick Miller, Charles Fleischer)

The whole approach and look of the film is so refreshingly original that you can fail to think it at least looks good.

The whole look of it is very eratic and comic book-like but not in a bad way.

The FX are also top rate with the demons looking very effective.

If only all Hollywood horrors were made this well..
