In 1949, the Mephistophelian Order of the Third Devil, the MOTD, purchased a piece of land, fifteen miles south of Houston, and built on it. This was the original and only regional worshiping center, where they gathered in the dead of night to revere the devil and curse God. Six years later, in 1953, the sect lost land and property to foreclosure. The land and property was put up for sale on the auction block that same year. A fledgling, newly formed, Christian sect, known as the Garden Gethsemane Parish, won the bid.
But, the battle for land and property has just begun…fifty-six years later, that is. The first owners of that tract of land hadn’t really vanished with time, only because the evil they worshiped had taken human form: Jez Abelton (Van Vicker). The devil quietly joined the fifty-something year-old Garden Gethsemane Parish. He is there to take back what he believes was his in the first place; the land the church sits on.
Pastor Okafor, (Perez Egbi), his wife, Nkem Okafor(Merlisa Langellier) and the Parish Council Members had their hands full. The Pastor calls in help from Colorado, a Catholic Priest, Reverend Dellinger (Bill Ross) America’s renowned Exorcist. But, the devil knows what to do to trash Pastor Okafor and Rev Dellinger’s efforts; he possesses Garden Gethsemane’s newly crowned deaconess, Kerrie Brown (Rosalyn Bertrand), to assist him in his scheme.
Chilling…a haunting, spiritual struggle between good and evil!!! Totally engaging, and finely woven: Racy and imaginatively delicious.
