4 people - Victoria (Kathleen Heidinger), Charles (Dennis Driscoll), Adelman (David Webber) and Scott (Scott Corizzi) - find themselves trapped in a basement - for no apparent reason, and they don't know how they got there, or how to get out. Eventually, they meet a hooded figure called the Sentinel, who tells them to confess the sins - of their future ...

  • Victoria has some monster hidden in her pool, a monster that slaughters everyone who jumps in - and she persuades quite a few people to jump in, starting with her husband, because Victoria is on a mission to clear all the people she doesn't want out of her life and from the face of the earth. But then her boyfriend comes by and throws her into the pool in a playful manner ...
  • Charles hates Halloween and hates children. Then his late wife comes back from the dead and tells him he has to mend his ways ...
  • Adelman makes about the worst zombie movie ever. So one night the real dead rise from their graves to demand proper representation ...

  • Scott has bought himself a haunted house, which he believes to be the perfect surroundings to write a horror novel. Too bad then a real demon possesses him and makes him kill all those dear to him ...

Back in the basement, after having told the four stories the Sentinel agrees to let his four visitors go ... to hell!


Even though this film hasn't been released until 2011, it's above all else nostalgic fun: A low budget, old fashioned shot-on-super 8 horror anthology that has 1980's written all over it, from the outfits and hairdos to the (mechanical) DIY special effects to the stories themselves that are likeably stuck halfway between 1950's monster schlock and modern shock cinema.

On the other hand of course, the directorial effort of this film might be 100% solid but lacks in creativity, and of the actors only Dennis Driscoll gives a really convincing performance - but the ambition this film was made with is clearly infectuous and irons over quite a few rough spots.
