This dreary direct-to-video effort is set in a home for juvenile delinquents which is haunted by the ghost of a malevolent sorcerer who inhabits the body of his own son (Anthony Jenkins) and draws on the boy's life force in order to secure his own immortality. The possessed teen wreaks havoc with his fellow residents with his telekinetic powers, triggering some grisly accidents and making life even more difficult for the troubled kids. The script presents some interesting variations on the demonic-possession scenario, but could have used some serious tightening -- as indicated by the filmmakers' tendency to fill plot holes with standard slasher-style mayhem. Enlivened by some well-done special effects, but not enough to keep fingers off the fast-forward button.
