Vietnam vet Bill Unger (Bruce Dern) is just trying to visit his wife’s grave when he hears Joshua (Billy Zane) and his followers conjure a demon, a fact that no one seems to believe. They better — the coven plans on feeding that demon every single person in town.
The real reason many genre fans will want to watch this Tubi original is the cast: Courtney Gains (Malachai!), Meg Foster (Evil Lyn!), John Kassir (the Crypt Keeper!), Tony Todd (do I even have to tell you?) and Adrienne Barbeau as a DJ not named Stevie Wayne, the nightlight at KAB.
It’s also a The ‘Burbs reunion and doesn’t miss the opportunity to throw in a line between Dern and Gains.
Director and writer Justin Lee (Apache Junction, Big Legend) has excelled at making movies with monsters in them. This one has a great demon — you barely see it but when you do, it’s quite incredible — and a cult determined to destroy a town that is in no way ready to go down without a fight.
Sure, VFW and The Void did this before and better, but if Tubi is now our video store, this is certainly not a bad film to grab before the store closes and you promised everyone you’d get a horror movie.
You can watch this on Tubi.
