Scott Bakula of Quantum Leap stars as a private eye who specializes in supernatural cases and has an affinity for the occult. He takes a seemingly “normal case” in Los Angeles in which a stage magician is killed during a performance. But that leads to the impending rebirth of an evil sorcerer that has Bakula fighting the forces of darkness. More gore than plot, with Famke as the cowering damsel (the magician’s widow). Written and directed by Clive Barker of Hellraiser and Night Breed fame.
108 minutes rated R, the un-rated Director’s cut runs 14 minutes longer.
