Serial killers and the supernatural took a hold of the American market in the 90s. Both were driven by the success of other bigger and better films and the films made often were of varied quality. The smaller labels tried to fund them as they saw them as big money makers if successful. Like the 80s boom of slashers and sexual films, these were copy and paste pieces that could often be seen hundred times before. Many of these are just as you would expect and are versions with little difference but the cast.
The First Power is one of those films that is weak on many things. It has a copy and paste story we have seen before in many avenues. The cast are a variety of erratic and ecstatic performances. Some of the set pieces are so illogical and set in motion very odd things within a unbalanced script, that you are perplexed at their introduction. Now one second however it has some bright points of light as it is heavy on action and supernatural content, silly set pieces mentioned above are a blast that will please a slasher fan and horror film fan person (no one else).
Disc is empty of content but the HD looks nice and sound on it is extremely good!
