Have no part with the deeds of darkness.

The movie did not have a good plot line. The actors didn’t have good scripts to work with. There was a lot of special effects but no real story to follow. The last half of the movie was hard to watch due to the character of satan in the movie. I’m glad I didn’t watch this with my teen children.
