Small town USA, 1979: Both Jessica (Mary Madaline Roe) and her dad John (Ash Calder) love to spend time in the workshop - so when Jessica one day brings a box of, basically, trash, they couldn't be happier. And when Jessica cuts herself and bleeds over an old tape recorder from that box, it doesn't seem like a big thing - only it is, as this tape recorder is somehow evil, and soon Jessica starts seeing things, and very disturbing things at that. Thing is, others start to see these things as well. Jessica and her best friends Sam (Morgan Chandler) and Cheddar (Eden Campbell) are quick to link this to Jessica's injury from earlier, especially since Jessica's scar starts to grow and form some kind of symbol. Then Jessica comes home one day to see her mum (Elizabeth Rhoades) pretty much hack herself to bits. Somehow she's convinced this wasn't really her mum and has to do with the symbol on her hand, so she, Sam and Cheddar go to the library to find out more, and fortunately the strict librarian (Steffanie Fostre Gustafson) turns out to be a pretty cool expert in all things supernatural who hooks them up with the former owner of the tape recorder, Alex Quinnley (Taylor Bartle), once assistant to his paranormal investigator dad (Damian Vines) but now a priest, who knows exactly what's going on, and it seems bleeding on the tape recorder has awakened a demon who needs Jessica as a tool to open the gate to another dimension, but to gain enough strength to open the gate, the demon has to eat enough souls (as in kill people) - so there's still time to stop him and reverse the process.

Time's pressing though, as in the meantime Jessica's dad has been arrested for killing her mum, and the demon starts killing all the policemen involved with this in increasingly bizarre ways, so much so that the local sheriff (Frederick Floyd) comes round to believing the kids' crazy explanations for all of this. But believing is one thing, defeating a demon quite another ...

 

A nice throwback movie to 1980s horrors, not only in regards to sets and props but also in its approach to the story, meaning everything from its main characters to its many gory scenes to its strictly practical effects (at least as far as I could tell) - and it works, as I'm sure fans of these horrors of old might agree, as apparently the filmmakers loved their blueprints but also understood their inner workings, and thus present the viewer with a well mapped out story with all the suspense, shocks and even humour in all the right places, without trying to force some post modern re-imaginations on things, and in result making this one fun ride for horror the dedicated horror fan.
