Ellen and William decide to take a weekend vacation together after she receives an African fertility mask as a gift. With sex on the brain, they are in for way more than they bargained as the Mask invokes an ancient evil – Kalunga, the Lord of the Underworld. Things take a bad turn when their car breaks down in the middle of nowhere and the couple is attacked. Fleeing through the dense woods, they seek shelter in the remote home of Mia who is hosting a weekend party with her friends. Soon they are all besieged by Kalunga, the man of Nightmares. However, the real horror comes when Ellen finally understands that they have unleashed the Underworld on everyone living!

Intermittently fun and occasionally witty, with just the right touch of self-awareness.
Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
A solid, whirlwind of a horror movie, with more twists and turns than a hula hoop competition.
Amanda Reyes, Film Threat Magazine
An amusing “midnight movie”!
Andy Klein, LA City Beat
The film delivers satisfying chills. Ellen’s encounter with the Nightmare Man in the lonely car is particularly memorable; the extended fright sequence is as effective as anything in the SCREAM movies.
Great fun anchored by the smoldering Tiffany Shepis…
When Tiffany Shepis performs a striptease while another actress fakes an orgasm, I knew I was in for more of a Night of the Demons experience and not just your typical supernatural slasher flick. An energetic excursion into b-horror that delivers a fun time for all.
Nice taut film filled with humor and great kills…
