Plots

A loan officer who evicts an old woman from her home finds herself the recipient of a supernatural curse. Desperate, she turns to a seer to try and save her soul, while evil forces work to push her to a breaking point. - Anonymous

Christine Brown is a loan officer at a bank but is worried about her lot in life. She's in competition with a competent colleague for an assistant manager position and isn't too sure about her status with a boyfriend. Worried that her boss will think less of her if she shows weakness, she refuses a time extension on a loan to an old woman, Mrs. Ganush, who now faces foreclosure and the loss of her house. In retaliation, the old woman place a curse on her which, she subsequently learns, will result in her being taken to hell in a few days time. With the help of a psychic, she tries to rid herself of the demon, but faces several hurdles in the attempt. - garykmcd

Kneeling on the floor pleading for mercy, the proud Romani woman, Mrs Ganush, is begging the sweet and fragile loan officer, Christine, for a third extension on her house loan. Instead--as the young clerk needs to convince her superiors that she is capable of making tough decisions--Christine decides to make, undoubtedly, the worst call in her life: deny the desperate client of an additional mortgage extension. As a result, in the following days of this sad incident, little by little, the unsuspecting Christine will come to realise that, what seemed like a crazy woman's hollow threat, is, in fact, a fiery and sulphurous curse; a devastating anathema which involves a tyrannical female demon from the pits of hell, and her impatient demand. Now, in less than three days, Christine will be hers for all eternity. Will she eat her words when the fiery fiend drags her to hell? - Nick Riganas
