Schlocky Gremlins rip-off about a couple who enter a mansion occupied by a satanist wizard and his horde of demonic creatures.
Cheap rubbish which would make perfect entertainment for a bad movies night.
A trio of sequels followed, all of varying quality, although the first of which, released in 1988, was (slightly) better than the first film, changing the formula slightly and relocating the action to a fairground carnival..
