Jordan (Toni Williams), Beth (Jessica Mathews), Evie (Kimberly Shea) and Evie's somewhat nerdy sister Lily (Sky Noel Smith) have decided to spend their springbreak in the country in the house of Jordan's archeologist father. In the house, they find massive research material on the biblical character Lilith, rumoured to have been Adam's first wife who is now spawning demons ... and especially bookish Lily shows an interest in the material, and while reading up on Lilith, she gradually shuts herself off from the others, but does also start dressing in a more sexy and provocative way, and her attitude even changes.

Eventually, Beth feels attracted to the house's caretaker Danny (Andrew Day), but while during one day, romance between the two of them seems to only blossom, at night Lily agressively seduces him ... then kills him. The next day, she goes on a shopping trip with Beth and kills her as well.

While Lily is out, Jordan and Evie break into her room, and slowly come to the conclusion that she has to be possessed by Lilith - and they try to find an incantation to end the possession ... but when Lily returns, she puts up quite a fight to remain the way she is, and she calls her demons to help and wants to bring Armageddon to earth, according to the biblical Revelations. Jordan has to die, but Evie can somehow finish the incantation, get rid of the demons and seemingly drown Lily, then make a getaway ... but unfortunately, Lily/Lilith has survived, and according to the Revelations, slaughter was only the first step to Armageddon ...

 

Well-crafted and intelligent horror film that for the most part seems to be a tad slow though: A bit too much time is spent with the buildup of the story, which, despite being by no means dull and giving the audience a proper feeling of unease, is missing a certain spark to come off as being really scary. The finale however does pack a punch, and in all, the film is well worth a look.
