Visual effects designer Stan Winston, better known for his creations for The Terminator & Predator, turns his focus to directing for this revenge tale creature feature.
Following the death of his son, a farmer summons a demon to kill those responsible. An act which has a greater price than he bargained for.
The first-time director creates an effectively chilling atmosphere, whilst the creature design and visual effects are of the standard you'd expect from Winston himself.
A very underrated piece of horror cinema.
