A house filled with college co-eds must struggle to survive when the ancient Indians buried beneath its grounds return for bloody revenge! THE DARK POWER is an extremely amateurish Slasher effort that almost isn't even worth mentioning. To name just a few of its many flaws, it is chocked full of cookie cutter characters, dreadfully forced dialog, awful acting, and a terrible score. While many of these disappointments can be written off if a Slasher delivers the gore, THE DARK POWER fails even worse in this department. Absolutely nothing happens until the hour point, after which the four poorly costumed Toltec priests ascend on the house, wreaking minor havoc with only the cheapest in low-budget deaths. Most of the characters are killed by a quick arrow to the chest, with a single exception where one of the male character's faces is ripped clean in half. The film could conceivably be enjoyed as a terrible B-Movie joke with friends, considering it possesses some of the most absurd and unnecessary scenes out of the 80s video circuit (including a mindless whip battle), but alcohol would be a necessary prerequisite. THE DARK POWER is an experiment in tedium that challenges its audience's patience and threshold for self-inflicted torture.
