Elevator Pitch Jennifer is taken by an aspiring Indie band to be a sacrifice which will enable them to be a success. For the witchcraft to work she needs to be a virgin, but because she isn’t her body is taken over by a demon, which kills fellow male college students to maintain its energy levels. Jennifer’s best friend in on the case but can she deal with the demon?
Content Scenes in an asylum, in the tavern where the band perform. Quite a bit of blood and gore as well as MF looking sexy but no nudity no drugs and not much drinking. One non-revelatory sexual encounter.
A View After a slow start it got to be watchable, but I think teenage boys would be disappointed in the lack of nudity – which seems to be par for the course for the genre. I’m choosing films based on the time I’ve got to watch them at the moment so this was OK at just over an hour and a half.
