Rescued from an unknown realm, a demon, raised as a monster-hunting government agent, faces his destiny and the destruction of the world.
A rather good movie, because it features a relatable and mortal character. The time of its release was not saturated with this genre, so it was gave a strong impression. Even re-watching it was entertaining. I think this will hold up very well over time.
In the coldest regions of space, the monstrous
entities Ogdru Jahad -- The Seven Gods of Chaos --
slumber in their crystal prison, waiting to
reclaim Earth...and burn the heavens.
Des Vermis Mysteriis, page 87
1:00 -- "What is it, that makes a man a man?"
What makes a man, is it the power in his hands?
is it his quest for glory?
Give it all you've got, to fight to the top.
so we can know your story.
