Performers, Cast and Crew:
USA Today - 08/25/1995
"...Lively....Enough grisly spectacle to fry your juices..."
Entertainment Weekly - 01/19/1996
"...Barker's most accomplished filmmaking effort..."
Variety - 08/21/1995
"...LORD is more sophisticated and satisfying than anything the genre has offered since WES CRAVEN'S NEW NIGHTMARE....The craftsmen responsible for the grisly makeup and special effects perform far beyond the call of duty..."
Los Angeles Times - 08/25/1995
"...It's Barker's most ambitious venture to date....LORD OF ILLUSIONS looks sensational....Rugged, intelligent and sensitive, Bakula is ideally cast..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 08/25/1995
"...Barker's specialty, in this film as in the HELLRAISER series, is a bloody finale with lots of special effects, and this time he outdoes himself..."
Thirteen years ago, cultist Philip Swan murdered his group's leader, an evil prophet named Nix who possessed unparalleled skills in black magic. Then he hid the body -- very well.
Now a successful magician in his own right, Swann finds himself stalked by Nix's followers, who want Nix's corpse so they can bring it back to life. Swann's wife Dorothea, aware of the dangers facing her husband, hires hard-boiled detective Harry D'Amour to watch over Philip. Soon D'Amour becomes deeply embroiled in the dark, unstable world of the supernatural, where nefarious illusionists, strange conjurings, creepy cultists, and the mysterious Mrs. Swann all turn his life into a living nightmare.
Will D'Amour survive all of these horrors'
