Plot Summary:
"A group of devil-may-care teenagers discover they've mistakenly called upon the Prince of Darkness in this flashy horror story. A handful of high school students have been entertaining themselves on weekends by playing an elaborate role-playing game in which they impersonate witches, warlocks, and other magical beings. One weekend, they decide to up the ante by breaking into the school and using the building's nooks and crannies to make the competition more challenging. One of the teens has brought along a book of magic spells, and they decide to throw some incantations into the games to make things more interesting. What the kids didn't count on is that the spells actually work, and soon the role-players have unleashed an unspeakable and dangerous force."

The third and probably not final chapter in the DeCoteau legacy sees teens do battle with demons.

As the first and second films were re-treads of 'The Craft' and 'The Lost Boys' I wondered what had inspired this third part, until I heard 'Dungeons & Dragons' referenced and then it became clear.

For once the location and premise were new!! The Mexican estate so frequently featured in David DeCoteau films was substituted for a Canadian High School complete with snow and everything!! The premise sees some teens invite the school jock to play 'The Game' with them, where the players sneak into the school at night and role play to win prizes. However this time something isn't right as the players are being possessed by a scary man in an executioner style costume.

None of the actors at time of production had been featured in a DeCoteau film, which was refreshing and some of them were actually very good!! Especially the character of Stan.

Sadly, in keeping with the look of the previous films, DeCoteau resorted to using that damn lightning machine!!

DeCoteau showcased a great location and some good lighting, it was just a shame that he didn't develop further sources of light, and he used far too much slow motion (perhaps he was making up for the surprising lack of homoeroticism and soft porn absent from this part of the trilogy).

OVERALL SUMMARY
In the end, the trilogy (for now) ended with a refreshing entry but don't expect any dramatic 'Scream' inspired revelations as the films are related in title and idea only. As David DeCoteau goes from strength to strength I look forward to further ventures.
