Customers who bought this item also bought
Corso (Depp) is a rather dubious rare book finder, whose services are engaged by the owner of one of Europe's largest collection of demonic texts. The prize of his collection is a 16th century tome entitled "The Nine Gates," a book containing nine etchings that supposedly hold the key to summoning Satan himself. Dean Corso (Johnny Depp) is highly skilled at his work, a position which requires dexterity, cultural expertise, nerves of steel...and few scruples. Known for locating rare books for wealthy collectors, Corso is hired by eminent book-lover and scholar of demonology, Boris Balkan (Frak Langella). Corso's mission: to find the last two volumes of the legendary manual of satanic invocation "The Nine Gates of the Shadow Kingdom," compare them with Balkan's first volume, supposedly the only one of its kind, and ascertain the authenticity of the series.

As far as the film goes, I liked it when I first saw it and consider it a fairly decent enough film to add to my collection. It's not perfect and can leave you wanting more of an explanation in characters and story, which is why I gave it four stars. I enjoyed Polanski's commentary.
All in all, it made me go back and read the source material, and, I liked the foundation of the film story based on books and the possibility that the Devil had a hand in writing one. The Devil as writer, who would've guessed?
