Release date: 2004
The name of the film put me off, I have to admit. Yes, it is another film where the concept seems to be that the adding of a ‘z’ onto the end of a word will make it all street. However… I will always try and give things a fair go and whilst this is fatally flawed I was surprisingly impressed at times. Occasionally it reached too high and crashed heavily as a result, but…
The film begins with a woman, Lillith (Sierra Tawan), in a red cape walking down the street. A man starts to follow her and then pursues as she slips down an alley. Dude… I know you’re up to no good but if you see a mysterious woman, in a cape, who nips down a dark alley of her own volition then just turn around and walk away.

The acting wasn’t brilliant but I have seen a lot worse. The actual story needed tightening and I hated the psychic link lore – simply because it just seemed too convenient and a little too casual to build such a link. The effects went from the unusually good – the gore moments – to the blooming awful – the burning in sunlight moments. However, all in all I was more impressed with this than I thought I would or could be. 4 out of 10.
