    winner is too flat and procedural-minded of a filmmaker to do anything remotely interesting with this kind of absurdly blatant Rosemary's Baby/The Exorcist copycat. won't deny it has a few creepy moments and it's pretty fun to watch a stacked supporting cast of recognizable hollywood greats like this play a bunch of quirky NYC inhabitants and/or demons but it's also strangely dull in spots as well. the premise felt like it was practically begging for one of those unhinged italian horror guys of the 70s to spice it up with some genuinely unhinged surrealism.
