Here we go - a murderer is lopping off heads. The murders have been going on for three years. There are no witnesses. The police decide to assemble a special unit and hire a specialist to look into this case because the killer "...was taking one head a month. Now he's taking one head a night." Seriously? I would hope you'd do something about it before it got to one murder a night.
The most ridiculous dialogue occurs when a bounty hunter meets with a voodoo lady to try to get info on the killer. He hands her cartridges found at the latest crime scene.
Crackpot Voodoo Lady - "I'd like to hold onto these."
Bounty Hunter - "Okay, but they are evidence so I'll need them back."
Oh my god! Are you kidding me? Since when would anyone involved in an investigation leave crime scene evidence with a civilian who does voodoo? That's just crazy.
Also amusing is that when the killer screams, he has a normal voice, but when he speaks it's a Satan voice.
The acting has some really awkward line reads. There often isn't enough light in the scenes and the dialogue is hard to hear. Another winner - and when I say winner, I mean waste of time - of a movie from the long line of $5 cheapie DVD movie sets.
