Favorite "B"-movie tough guy William Smith stars in this dull and tacky occult horror film, released directly to home video. Smith plays a maniacal Satanist with the entire town of Red Rock under his thumb. The key to his power is his regular provision of souls for his evil master, which he acquires from unfortunate townspeople with the aid of a sinister cop (professional behemoth Robert Z'Dar, of the Maniac Cop series) and offers up via frequent ritual sacrifices and a spate of gory murders. Aside from the welcome presence of Smith, this is basically a cheap slasher film which offers absolutely nothing new, and suffers from the usual ham-fisted direction, hideous acting and lackluster special effects.
