30 years (it usually is..) after the gruesome death of her aunt and grandfather, young Cathy and her family moves in to the old family house. But her aunts curse slowly transform the little girl to an evil little monster with powerful forces.

A grindhouse mix of “Omen”, “The Exorcist” and “Carrie” from Canada. I have no doubts of the writer/director’s intentions of making a scary low-budget flick with a flair. Sadly it’s a failure. Still there’s entertainment value here, and also scares and burned faces. I’ll especially recommend it for an evening with beer and buddies with a twisted sense of humour!
