A strange Terminator rip-off that can't decide how serious it wants to be.
The decent performances and above-the-budget effects help make up for an absolute trainwreck of a script, rife with underdeveloped characters, nonsensical decision-making (including and up to God himself), and lines that fall flat.
Still, there is a sense of some small amount of self-restraint or at least winking alongside the ridiculous and indulgent story. A few lines seem to indicate this is more about showing 14-year-olds a one-off good time than any kind of actual theme or story.
This feels a little long, and it's predictable in terms of beats and outcome, but it's still paced well enough that it never quite gets outright boring for me.
The scene with Granny Spider Demon is 1000x more fun than the rest of this. Perhaps they would have been better off making this a short film.
A peculiar but nonetheless uninteresting film.
