It was good. No, it was great. I just was kind of expecting more from a Johnny Depp movie.

The plot was original and creepy. Not so much scary, but it was more a thriller and had a spooky vibe to it. Basically Dean Corso, a rare book hunter who is hired by a demonologist to track down the other two remaining copies of a book he owns to examine them and authenticate his copy. Little ... read more

"Dean Corso (Johnny Depp) saa toimeksiannon. Demonologiasta luennoiva Boris Balkan (Frank ”Nixon-Skeletor-Dracula” Langella) palkkaa nukkavierun, ja häikäilemättömästi toimivan bibliofiilin etsimään kolmen säilyneen 300-vuotta sitten kirjoitetun, Venetsiassa vuonna 1666 julkaistun satanistisen kirjan – Yhdeksän porttia varjojen valtakuntaan – eroja.
