POSSESSION IS 9/10TH OF THE LAW
on November 29, 2012
SIX DEGREES OF HELL is a rather perverse twist on the six degrees of separation theory. Writer/director/co-star Joe Raffa weaves a tale of ghostly possession and psychobabble focusing on young June and the psychic forces she is destined to release upon the world.
A clever premise falters at times, with incoherent plotholes and reckless sound editing. The performances are on a community theatre level. Some of the make-up effects are good but due to its obviously limited budget, there are some laughable ones, too. Some of the blood looks like tomato juice.
The presence of Corey Feldman as a punkish paranormal investigator adds little more than a vehicle for narrative exposition. The final scene seems an indication of a potential sequel.
SIX DEGREES is entertaining in a sleazy way and rental would be wiser than purchasing. One viewing should be enough.
