Elevator Pitch A group of nerds out on a Dungeons and Dragons type weekend accidentally conjour up a demon in the form of an ex girlfriend of one of them. When she begins to eviscerate the players the man playing the wizard attempts to return her to hell but instead turns her into an even more fearsome demon. They are required to play the game for real.
Content People wander about in the forest shouting at each other. D&D battles take place. The demon in female shape might carry out a sex act with unfortunate results, before starting to extract the player’s internal organs. The more fearsome demon beheads people.
A View This was said to have gone straight to video/DVD/streaming, although it was shown on 13 screens in USA, and LARPers are said to like it, but those who did not include the director and me. There were opportunities for a better plot which were not taken I thought. Unless you are a LARPer don’t bother with it.
