What a disturbing plot along with disturbing imagery. Dealing with Satan and talks of the anti-christ is one that I didn't realize was going to be an actual theme in this story. I just figured that the title was a play on words. Not the case. The story pacing was slow with the execution as well as the characters really weren't interesting. I didn't feel fully invested in this story and it did seem to now flow as smoothly as I would have liked. I can see why this has become a staple amongst the aficionados but this isn't my cup of tea. I give it one star for effort but it is a no from me.
