This lackluster attempt at blending equal parts action movie and supernatural thriller ends up sacrificing the merits of both genres. The plot finds baby-faced homicide detective Logan (Lou Diamond Phillips) on the trail of "Pentagram Killer" Patrick Channing (Jeff Kober), negligibly assisted by lots of occult mumbo-jumbo espoused by various doomsaying members of the Catholic Church. Channing is eventually captured and executed, but this turns out to be a big mistake: one of the Satanic powers Channing managed to acquire through ritual sacrifice is the power to transfer his soul into other living bodies, allowing him to roam about incognito and continue his killing spree. There is little overt horror on display, as we usually see only the aftermath of Channing's evil deeds; there is scarcely enough mystery to propel the police-procedural elements either. Worse, the producers apparently decided to toss in a romantic subplot involving Phillips and psychic Tracy Griffith to keep things interesting, but fail to sustain credibility even in this department.~Cavett Binion
Do my eyes see this right? Okay this is real. This is one of the best cult suspense movie with L.Diamond. Even just stands alone with a story similar to "Fallen" w/Denzel W. gotta see it !!! I Hv a VHS of this movie & couldn't wait for it to drop on BR. Collectors of Suspense /Horror/ Cult movies - this is a gd one.
Ghostly mayhem and terror with Lou Diamond Phillips as a tough cop who will stop at nothing to get his man. Too bad when he does, his assailant comes back from the dead with a little help from supernatural forces to wreak havoc for our fearless cop!
