Miklós Fenyö's parents returned to Communist Hungary in the mid sixties - when everyone else was fleeing to the West. Miki's old friends don't know what to make of his outrageous clothes, flawless American accent and collection of original Buddy Holly 45s. His childhood sweetheart is cold and distant while local tough guy Röné is unmoved by the challenger to his rock 'n' roll crown. But that's not all. When the authorities see the effect Miki's gyrating hips and lewd music have on teenage girls, they won't stand for it. His father's job is on the line, and, for the first time, Miki must play by the rules. He has no choice but to enter the local talent show...

It's a Robert Redford film and so reeks of quiet grace despite the pace being that of a dying-friend-in-the-hospital visit. The work of all onscreen is exemplary, particularly Robin Wright.

Unfortunately for him he ends up being possessed by some evil shit and spends the film trying to fight whatever is trying to take over his soul. Low budget horror with some predictable and nonsensical moments but it will definitely scare the non horror fans, for me it is just not scary, just noisy and a little silly. Definitely some good ideas, could have worked a lot better than what the finished product, budgets and restraints will do that. I'd be interested in what the director does next though.
