Because of this, nothing about this movie makes a lick of sense. It's a shame, really, because the lead performances by the teens in camp are strong and the basic message, that religious indoctrination ignores the realities of life, is a solid one.
Will add that this movie makes me wonder if Andrew McCarthy was ALWAYS this bad, and no one noticed back in the 80s because everyone was just as jacked up on coke as he seems to be naturally.
Anyway...skip it, unless you enjoy the frustrations of imagining the nightmare that must have been played out between the director, writer, and ham-handed editors.
Basically this kids commits a few very small sins so satan starts messing with his head and tormenting people around him. There is maybe a whole five minutes of the stuff that is suppose to be scary, the rest is just crazy christians preaching about how every little thing is a sin.
Candy = sin, rock music = sin, anything about teen pop culture = sin, kissing a girl = sin, a girl talking to a boy alone = sin(and makes the girl a whore).
I don't know why Jesse Eisenberg is on the cover, he's only about five minutes of the film.
The sex scene consists of two teens (one a 16 year old virgin "harlot") dry humping in the dark.
I will say I was confused by the ending and the message of the movie. Is this an atheist movie or a movie whose message is that Satan uses long drawn out conversions to create atheists by manifesting himself as a demon? Does the movie really mean to say Steve Perry is a demon seed, or makes fun of those who do?
As a serious Christian movie, I would give it one star. As a movie that makes fun of Christians...maybe 2 stars.
No nudity, or gosh darn swearing. Dry humping, references to rock group "Journey" and Spawn comic book. Kids almost eating jelly beans. What I really can't believe is the "R" rating. As Sara might tweet, "WTF?"
The rest of the film was pretty much a train wreck. I kept watching the movie waiting for the "horror". I could have just watched the trailer again, because that's nearly all of the horror in the film. Well if you don't count watching the film itself a "horror".
Too many things to ponder with no real answers.
