An okay combination horror film from the sci fi channel.
For a science fiction channel movie it is pretty good...most of their
movies consist of a computer generated monster of some sort in the
water or killer dinosaurs or something. This one was sort of a
combination of two Stephen King novels "The Stand" and "It" and while
no means better than the books it is at least better than "It". Never
saw "The Stand" so I don't know if it was better than that one. This
one has a man battling what is essentially the devil many times in the
past, each time helping someone out and they in turn are in his debt.
Well the final showdown is about to take place, in a town where it all
began so many years ago as the devil apparently killed many in a town
including the man who would battle Satan's parents. So all those the
man has saved start to go on the move for the town so they can help in
this final battle. Of course, along the way the devil is trying to
knock off as many of these friends as he can. Nothing to shocking and
there are some plot points that needed to be worked out a bit more such
as the Dee Wallace character and the main characters sister, still
though it passed the time and had a few good gory effects, of course it
had some bad ones too as you know the sci fi channel has to use that
computer they own to add horrible computer graphics where using old
fashioned techniques would have worked as well if not better such as
the church steeple in the middle of the lake. Really why use cgi there?
Simply imposing a real steeple would have looked more real and would
have been cheaper too. Oh well. All in all not a bad flick it has this
and that and look for Jeffery Combs in the sort of comic relief role as
he does a good job.
