Storyline

When mechanic Jeff Obold meets the wealthy and mysterious Bruno Rubin, he is exposed for the first time to the finer things in life. But Jeff soon discovers the source of Rubin's power: a caged creature called a "Darkling," which possesses the power to create incredible wealth for the person who will pledge unending "companionship." Now, as Jeff sinks further and further into the blackness of a soul sold to the devil, he will discover there is a high price to pay for the fulfillment of his dreams. The cast of this USA Network Original Movie includes Oscar-winner F. Murray Abraham (Amadeus, Star Trek: Insurrection) and sultry Nina Siemaszko (Wild Orchid II: Two Shades of Blue).

if you like twilight zone creep show, then you'll like this
12 May 2013 | by jpdhadfieldSee all my reviews

if you like twilight zone or creep show then you'll like this, it has the same type of acting, and story, its made for television, which is good as the concentrate on the story. It scary and intriguing, makes you wonder what will happen.i was hooked from five minutes in. like a Roald Dahl story. i would recommend it to anybody who prefers a scary story over blood and gore. Its much deeper with twists and turns, the young girl is a fabulous actress.Also if you like classic American muscle cars, well it will be treat, I cant explain exactly why it is so good, as it would spoil the film for you, i felt it was like watching a film form the 80's ,which is a film time i enjoyed.
