Tagline: Armageddon is at hand and the final prophecy is about to be fulfilled.

Plot: A troubled young boy and his father on a road trip stumble upon a rural farm where the elderly owner has sinister plans for the both of them involving witchcraft and evil.

My rating: 6.5/10

Will I watch it again?  Nah.

Neat little flick.  Lance Henriksen's doing a fine job; the rest of the cast, too.  The story might feel a little slow but as you get closer to the end it ramps up to a violent and bloody finale.  And it's not the ending that was fulfilling so much as the final act when things started to make more sense and the story was readying for the climax.  It's a nice picture with a score that creeps along in the background.  Anchor Bay released here in the States and the disc comes with a few extras including a commentary track with director Don Michael Paul.
