We have a military outcast who is abused and withdrawn and everything seems to be going wrong for him. Then he finds a book of black mass and begins to conjure Satan through a computer to harass his tormenters. It's kind of like "Carrie" from a military perspective only far less likeable. I should note that this one made the video nasty list and I'm not entirely sure why, I guess it's rather gory. So many of these half-assed '80s films pollute the market and waste the time of many a viewer, but this is one of the better of the lot. Still revenge can be least during a few moments in the film anyhow!
