Def By Temptation
Directed by James Bond III
A succubus is hell-bent on using her seductive powers to destroy a young minister in this low-budget Troma hit featuring a pre-fame Samuel L. Jackson. Joel (director James Bond III) found religion after his parents died in a mysterious crash, while his best friend K (Kadeem Hardison) became a big player. When Joel visits K in NYC, he meets a sexy demon who is determined to drag him down to hell, unless the Lord can help him resist her charms. DEF helped pave the way for the ‘90s Black horror revival that resulted in hits like CANDYMAN and TALES FROM THE HOOD. Contains strong language, sexual scenes, violence and gore.

I liked this movie. Kinda doesnt have a good structure for a lot of it, but it's entertaining and has some cool visuals. They did some good work on their low budget. Check it out!
pretty slow at times but i love the characters!! solid spooks
Much, much better than I was expecting. James Bond III's acting is a little clunky but everyone else was great, particularly Kadeem Hardison. It even has what's essentially a Fox Mulder character three years before the X-Files premiered. My only complaint is that the last (human) character death, while very fun, felt really tacked-on and unnecessary.
A solid and enjoyable film.
Adding this to my roster of classics. Cheesy but self-aware, religious but not pedagogical. Some fun kills and wonderful cinematography. You can feel the budget and how not a cent was wasted (except maybe the puppet in the veil, yikes)
