They begin losing feeling in their bodies and losing their memories as well. Soon enough, they cannot remember any life at all outside the house. All this time, a green blob has been forming in another room, slowly stalking the family.moreless

      As a seventeenth-century church is being torn down to make way for the new NATO headquarters building, a demolition worker is mysteriously strangled by the power cord of his jack-hammer as he tries to drill into one of the church's walls. After a brief flashback, we learn that the leader of a Devil-worshipping cult gave orders for himself and a traitor to the cult to be walled up behind that very wall of the church. Back to the present, a woman from a group of preservationists wants to stop the destruction of the church because she claims there are strong supernatural forces within which should not be unleashed. But she is not heeded, and the bizarre murders inside the church continue, as a diabolical evil which has been trapped in the church for three hundred years seeks its revenge. Solid, but a slow moving episode.moreless
