A fallen man of the cloth forever bound to the fires of Hell by a pact made with Satan is unleashed to torment humankind in director Massimiliano Cerchi's religious-themed frightener. It was 20 years ago that a young innocent named Melissa was discovered by her neighbors drenched in blood and driven to near-insanity by the evil that claimed her father, and even as an adult, the darkness of that fateful day still haunts her. She's trying to get over her childhood fears, though, and when Melissa finally manages to convince herself that the evil never truly existed, it is finally freed to wreak havoc on the world of the living. Father Thomas Donaldson was a trusted clergyman who was loved by his flock, but when Father Donaldson began to question his faith and became obsessed with the idea of getting a glimpse of heaven, the deal he so arrogantly cut with Satan to fulfill his Earthly wish left him blinded and possessed by evil. Now the man once known as Father Donaldson has become Hellinger, an unstoppable demon with a unquenchable hunger for human souls and a special place in his black heart for the girl who now thinks he was a mere figment of her imagination.
