The Power (1983)

84 min.
Directed by Jeffrey Obrow and Stephen Carpenter.
With Susan Stokey, Warren Lincoln, Lisa Erickson, Chad Christian, Ben Gilbert, J. Dinan Myrtetus, Stan Weston. Chris Morrill, Rod Mays, Alice Champlin.
Passable horror with a moment or two of its own.

A supposed Aztec idol from antiquity bestows upon its possessor the power to harness and control the forces of evil.

Too bad it couldn't throw in a decent plot and believable dialogue for the deal.

A few likable, middle of the road characters and some interesting makeup work are really the two reasons to give this the perfunctory viewing.

From the same team that gave us the 1981 slasher The Dorm that Dripped Blood.
