Did a quick search and couldn't find a thread dedicated to this film. Saw it on HBO as a kid and it actually scared me. The gargoyle did, anyway. I couldn't sit through the ending, anyway. Rewatching it these last couple of years, though, has made me love it a lot and wish it were more well-known and respected.

I have it in my collection, but wish we could get a DVD release.  Enjoyed it quite a bit, especially some of the things that make it all fit together, like the girl hunting the unicorn.  There's also the great scene with the "death by papercuts."

The release was odd, since it was an HBO Original Movie back when HBO didn't really produce it's own material.

I really enjoyed the movie, although it's low budget often shines through. If you like this, I recommend checking out Jim Butcher's Dresden Files. The books, though, not the TV series.

I also quite enjoyed it's sequel, Witch Hunt, even if it lost Fred Ward. The magic-as-communism as metaphor works surprisingly well.

Every dead body that is not exterminated becomes one of them. It gets up and kills. The people it kills, get up and kill.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
