    Overview

    Synopsis


    Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things
    In Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things, an above average slasher/horror film, a group of amateurs decide to experiment with witchcraft with deadly results. This film has a small cult following, due to some extent to the fact that one of the lead characters is played by writer and makeup effects artist Alan Ormsby. Ormsby gives one of the three or four most obnoxious screen performances in history as Alan, the leader of a troupe of actors who try out a voodoo ritual on a corpse only to find out that it has worked on all the corpses in the graveyard. The acting is terrible and the special effects are obvious and cheap, but the film somehow manages to overcome all of this and be quite entertaining, but only for those with strong stomachs. ~ Linda Rasmussen, Rovi

    Forever Evil
    This interesting rip-off of The Evil Dead involves a diabolical real-estate agent who commits a series of ritual murders in order to release an evil god trapped in another dimension. The sacrifices, timed to coincide with cosmic emanations from the black hole in which the god has been imprisoned, turn several occupants of a remote mountain cabin (sound familiar?) into demonic ghouls. Gory mayhem ensues as the two survivors fend off the zombie attacks, leading to a somewhat insolvent conclusion in which it may be difficult to tell who wins. Though basically pointless, this film nevertheless boasts some effective scares, excellent makeup effects, and a fairly detailed exploration of the H.P. Lovecraft-inspired premise. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi
