May 1, 2019

In this episode, the Retro Movie Geek crew are geeking out over The First Power (1990) and

  • Lou Diamond Phillips’ acting
  • flattops, mullets & jerry curls
  • cast biographies
  • mafia vampires
  • and much, much more!



A vicious serial killer is tracked down by detective Russell Logan. Although the maniac is executed in the gas chamber, the murders begin again. A devil worshipper, the killer has the first power – one of three forces only God or the devil can bestow.

With supernatural forces behind him, he can now appear in anybody, anywhere, at any time. In shocking sequences of spectacular action, he pursues Logan and the beautiful psychic, Tess, who is helping the police. Watch in horror as this unstoppable entity grows stronger with each murder.
