When you connect the 5 locations where gruesome deaths took place on a map, the lines form a perfect pentagram, & in the middle of it - a highschool. Thank god good witch Misa Kuroi (Kimika Yoshino), as a new student, arrives there just in time, to fight whoever is behind all this evil. & not one moment to soon, 'cause when their lesbian math-teacher makes them take a test in the evening hours, all hell breaks loose: Gruesome murders start to happen (the best is when a girl drowns in the toilets when they get flooded), the students seem to be locked in, with every door out of school actually leading into the classroom again, & a number, mysteriously written onto a blackboard, counts down the 13 victims needed for Lucifer's summoning to earth. Even worse, for some reason Misa's white magic seems to have little effect against whoever is bebhind the evildoings, and she has little clue whoever that is, is it Mitsuno (Natsumi Takahashi), who has always doubted her, & who does actually turn killing maniac, only to suddenly kill himself, is it the lesbian maths-teacher, who actually does do a blood sacrifice of one of Misa's students, & who Misa can only kill with the help of an axe ? No, as everyone else is dead, it turns out that Misa's innocent little friend Mizuki (Miho Kanno) actually wants to summon Lucifer, & she comes well prepared, having Misa robbed of her powers with some evil voodoo-spell, even seemingly killing her. But as Misa said, she can't summon the devil, & somehow, in an effective if campy scene with the dark angel towering over the city, instead of calling Lucifer to earth, Mizuki is sucked into hell. Misa somehow survives the ordeal.


Typical Japanese blend of high school-shenanigans & horror, lesbian sex & absolute evil, over-the-top-gore effects & girls with supernatural powers - of course all played in school-uniforms, & rather tongue in cheek. Not the most accomplished piece of work & rather pointless, actually, but entertaining nevertheless.
