Dean Corso is a rare book collector whose most recent client has acquired "The Nine Gates of the Kingdom of Shadows;" a legendary 17th century edition that can be used to summon the Devil. Only 3 copies remain of this book, and Corso's client wants him to go on a strange and dangerous mission to track down the other two.

WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

Salon by Charles Taylor

Amusing, ultra-deadpan entertainment. The director was lucky enough to have a cast who were in on the joke and tuned in to his wavelength.

Film.com by Peter Brunette

Compulsively watchable and its occasional lapses into that familiar Polanskian overkill are almost charming.
