Satanic movie full length review - Lacking a point

I think this is the first time I've watched a movie and realized that I couldn't identify what the point was.

Four people (college age?) go to LA to tour a variety of satanic tourism spots. After following a satanist to a ritual, they run into a girl who was involved in that satanic sect. Feeling bad for her, they take her in, and party with her in their hotel room. The girl starts acting weird, and eventually kills herself.

Then some stuff happens, I believe implying something to the effect that demons have decided to claim the other people in the hotel room with her for some sort of purpose.

First, I'll get some of the good stuff out of the way. The production values are pretty good. The sound and picture is good enough that it never seems wrong. The characters are reasonably well drawn, even if they're all sort of annoying. At least they have consistent qualities.

But then, the story seems strange and aimless. The protagonists running into the satanic sect is fine. The girl deciding to kill herself in a ritual seems fine. But then the story takes a bizarre nosedive. There's a kernel of a decent story here. The protagonists being swept along into being unwitting sacrifices because they happened to be present at the suicide. But that angle never is explored. In order for that approach to work, the characters would need to be sympathetic.

Instead, we get a bunch of strange behavior, leading to most of the characters being killed/mutilated off-screen.

Most notable is the completely irrelevant time-loop event. Near the beginning, the characters see a girl on a building, panicking. At the end, one of our protagonists is now the girl on the building, seeing their car driving.

Why? This doesn't fit into anything else in the movie.

I'm not angry at this movie, but it lacks any sense of charm that lower-budget movies tend to have. This doesn't feel like a labor of love. It feels like a cynical effort to churn out a horror movie under budget and on time.
