Advantages: Excellent concept of a story
Disadvantages: It culd have been developed more into a proper horror
This is a difficult movie to review. It is a horror movie, based upon a religious mythology, set in the current world. While the story line is good, and the special effects are alright, it is a bit too subtle to be able to get the desired effect of scaring people. This movie being a horror is not one of those to make people think, it is not one that is supposed to get people to scare themselves, it is built to be a real horror that scares you, and you can see that all the way through it, it's just like the director had never done a horror movie before, or was just too scared to.
Story (May contain spoilers)
There is an ancient demonic spirit in this world, well there are many, but this is the current story of one such demonic angel, Lilith. Mythology has it that she was the first wife of Adam, whom Adam didn't actually like so she was replaced with Eve.
This spirit over time developed the skill of hopping. Hopping is where a person does and vacates the body, someone manages to get the body working again (a doctor) and as the body is running, but no one is home the spirit jumps inside to take full control until they wear that body out.
Currently Lilith is inhabiting the body of a prostitute, but this prostitute is dying, unfortunately the paramedic who is on the scene assumes the wrong reasons for why she is dying and actually gives her a cure that kills her. Naturally they take her to hospital to try and save her, but she dies, right around the same time as a school teacher dies, whom get bought back to life a few minutes later, but she's not quite who she seems.
She now goes on a mission of revenge and to try and mess up this paramedics life. However people are starting to get on to her, a private investigator investigating the paramedic, and of cause the paramedic, who's wife gets involved.
The question we are left with, is will this paramedic be able to stop Lilith before she ruins his life?
As mentioned previously the special effects are alright, however they don't make this a true horror story, just help the story line be acceptable.
The movie was good and had an excellent concept, it just wasn't executed as effectively as it could have been. There was good choice of actors, some known some unknown that helped the movie, but overall it really did need some better special effects to make it the true horror it was supposed to be.
I would recommend watching this as long as there is nothing else on, but don't go out of your way to watch this movie it can certainly wait to suit your needs.
Summary: A movie worth watching, however it should be remade properly
