Goofy, '80s supernatural horror that is extremely silly and crushingly boring for the most part, but is given the occasional surrealist jolt thanks to the cool, stretchy latex effects work of the KNB EFX Group. The story (by Joe Augustyn and Walter Josten) sees ancient demon Lilith (Isa Andersen) resurrected in modern times and setting about claiming men's souls, apparently by taking over Siren, a fashion magazine owned by Rita (Karen Black) and sexing-up then killing the male staff.
