Killing, not much blood.
The Movie Guy
Unfortunately, for Angelica, this story is along the lines of THE MONKEY'S PAW, and she soon finds out that getting your wishes granted isn't always a good thing.

Unfortunately a handful of awesome effects doesn't elevate a crappy story with terrible acting.

The film opens with a family murder/suicide. It claims these happen every full moon in clusters in different communities. The reason is the apparent urban legend pirate radio station which eerily operates during that one night from sundown to sunrise, granting callers their wish in what is an apparent monkey's paw type of fashion.

Sweet Angelica (Catherine Munden) wants to go to a party with the kids from high school. Mom (Kate Enggren) has her grounded for missing curfew. Angelica's best friend and bad influence is Staci (Sarah Christine Smith) who post provocative photos on the web (mom says it's porn) and specializes in conversations with men behind bars. She claims, "Having a job is sooo Mexican."

The sad acting and dialouge can be seen in the mother-daughter conflict scene. Angelica is mesmerized by the Oracle radio transmission on FM 99.9 as she sits at home grounded. Riled by a staged photo sent by her "friend" Staci, Angelica calls the Oracle. Then low budget things start to happen which might make you say, "I wish I had never seen this film."

The real dark characters are the voices at The Open Door. They remained voices and never achieved the cult status that bad guys need to produce viable sequels. They missed a golden opportunity.

Occasional F-bomb, no sex or nudity. Killing, not much blood.

the movie is a B movie so the acting is pretty bad but the lame plot and dialogue don't help. pacing is also a problem since the first half of the film is about a group of teenagers talking about an urban legend radio station, being grounded and missing the party. the urban legend about the pirate radio show is rather uninspired as is the blood bond and the ghosties that haunt the caller's house. the special effects are nonexistent and there is poor make up and no suspense or gore. if you really want to watch a movie where people die due to an urban legend try watching the movie urban legend.

THE OPEN DOOR begins w/ a bang. No, literally, as a family is shot to death by a gun-toting dad, who then shoots himself. The scene then shifts to a high school, where we are introduced to sweet, innocent Angelica, and a host of teenage reaper-fodder, all getting ready for a big party. We are told about a pirate radio show that only broadcasts during the full moon. Enter the mobile radio van, w/ its antenna aimed right at Angelica's town! Actually, I found the radio announcer to be quite interesting, and pretty creepy. Meanwhile, Angelica gets herself grounded, and can't go to the bash. Poor Angelica tunes into the dreaded station (999 FM!), and hears a strange, esoteric tirade / sermon about getting what she wants, just by taking it. So, she listens for hours to a soothing, Oprah-ish voice called THE ORACLE, eventually "embracing the power of her mind". Well, Angelica calls THE ORACLE, and makes a mega-wish over the phone that just about covers everything going on in her life! Unfortunately, for Angelica, this story is along the lines of THE MONKEY'S PAW, and she soon finds out that getting your wishes granted isn't always a good thing. I like this movie, as it is different from the typical teen horror of today. It sort of reminded me of WISHCRAFT, w/ a bit of the supernatural darkness of THE RING, and even some EVIL DEAD tossed in for flavor. I'm surprised that more people haven't heard of it...
