An actress starts seeing visions of a witch character called Levana, which she’s supposed to play in an upcoming horror movie, and slowly begins to discover a supernatural plot against her life.

“Where can I start with this movie. Okay, this movie has had many titles such as u0026quot;Demons 6u0026quot;, u0026quot;The Black Catu0026quot;, u0026quot;Armaggedonu0026quot;, and the list goes on. None of the titles for the movie make any sense.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe movie starts out with a director planning to make a film about a witch called u0026quot;Levanau0026quot;. His basis for the movie is based off of Dario Argentou0026#39;s u0026quot;Susperiau0026quot;. The director decides that he is going to cast his wife as the lead in the movie. Well, apparently there is a real witch named Levana and she is not to happy with this whole project and decides to make the directors wife a living hell.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe main problems with this movie are continuity and pace. I will admit that this is a very atmosphere flick but the whole movie still falls flat on its face. There are so many moments in this flick where I had to say out loud u0026quot;What the hell is going on?u0026quot;. For instance, many scenes just tend to wander off in to space. Literally, the camera has shots out in space and on the moon. This has nothing to do with whatu0026#39;s going on in the movie and if it does, someone correct me because I havenu0026#39;t figured it out.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe pace of the film would seem to at points move farely well but for the most part the scenes just start to drag and you could care less with whatu0026#39;s happening. The beginning of the movie is a prime example. The characters are introduced and the story starts to develop but then things just start to fall to pieces right before your very eyes.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe acting in the movie is rather humorous at moments. A certain scene when the director and his assistant meet the man who wants to produce the movie is rather hysterical. And almost all of the scenes with Lavana in them are laugh out loud funny.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI think the main thing that saves this movie is a decent original score (Iu0026#39;m not talking about the bad hair metal in the background) and a few moments of gore. It seems that the director of the movie (Luigi Cozzi) still loves to have people having their organs blown to pieces. For those of you who donu0026#39;t know what Iu0026#39;m talking about, watch Contamination.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAll in all, could have been a much better film. 4/10 stars”
