A plastic bag is held over a teen boy’s head and he falls into a hole in the floor as he struggles (we understand that he is OK Later). A man carries an axe over his shoulder as he walks through a house, he finds a teen boy hiding in a room and throws the axe as the boy runs away pinning his backpack to the wall. A teen boy climbs out a window and jumps off a roof to the ground below (he lies moaning for a moment before running away and we see a scrape on his chin later).

A teen boy finds a blood soaked bed and when he lifts the sheets we see bloody remains of something (bones and tissue; probably from animals). A teen boy finds a teen girl with straps on her wrists and she appears ill.
 Flames burst out from under a door and we see smoke billowing in the distance of a town that is in rubble, as a creature flies through the air and another with glowing eyes, pointed teeth and darkened veins under the skin, swoops down behind a teen boy; a plane in flames crashes in the distance, a building is set ablaze and we hear people screaming as the scene ends. A teen boy hears creaking and movement in his house and walks through the dark room carrying a fireplace poker; when a man comes around a corner, the teen nearly hits him and he argues with his mother about who the man is.

We hear a man’s voice chanting in an unidentified language as he performs some type of ritual by candlelight; we see a glimpse of the man wearing a hooded garment.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
