The pros: A killer soundtrack. Assorted anti-heroes spouting just the right amount of wise-assery (unlike Deadpool). Fun in the places where it didn't take itself too seriously.

- Why is the non-black dog called Blackie?
- How can they be following a car and then the same car approach them from behind?
- The ouija shit went on far too long.
- Stars an actress who looks very much like Jenny Agutter but gets her kit off even more.
- Was that magick lard they were smearing on each other?
- Who the hell was the bloke in the wooly hat?
- Why do they want to eat all the time?
- After the male satanist gets shot in the head, Jenny Agutter helpfully advises that "he needs a doctor"!
- Just how many times will they try and leave the house of the devil?
- What was with that doll?
Note that the pretty crappy subtitles on the Screenbound blu-ray are often a little hard to read - small, white on white text is not good.

Great dialogue, terrific NYC locations, full of great fleshed-out characters, THAT score by Chef and The Bar-Kays, the final rescue, Richard "I'm a handsome fucker" Roundtree.
Cool as fuck.
The "Soul in Cinema: Filming 'Shaft' on Location" extra on my DVD was pretty damned fine as well and includes Isaac Hayes and The Bar-Kays recording the score.
