Shows there struggles and there finding Christ in there life. More or less on the same line a Fireproof, Facing The Giants and Last Sin Eater. A excellent family film, worth 5 stars
Allan C (ca) wrote: Wildly self-serious horror film that desperately wants to be "art" that simply comes off as just ridiculous. Patricia Arquette is a girl who begins to experience the stigmata and Vatican investigator Gabriel Byrne is on the case. Jonathan Pryce is a Vatican official, who the story ends up revealing that there is gospel the church is keeping a gospel secret tha would blow the lid off of organized religion. It's that pretension that makes this basic exorcism story so pretentious that it just comes off as annoying. The film is visually arresting at moments, but he script is strictly Exorcist paint-by-numbers. Not to lay all the blame on the script, the director also gets credit for taking a pretty unoriginal script and blowing it up into some major denunciation of the Catholic church. More annoying than scary.
JB R (gb) wrote: Early Morris doc was intended to be about insurance fraud. After threats on his life, Morris decided to simply let the camera roll on some eccentric folks that live in the tow of Vernon. The film is other-worldly and engaging but lacks any sort of coherence. Morris' trademark stylistic techniques are on display here and make the visual aspects of the film even more intriguing.

Although everything turns out OK in the end, so I guess it isn't that bad. (?) Overall if I could put a one line review on the cover of the home release of the movie, it would be "More entertaining than a Quentin Tarantino movie."

Kevin N (gb) wrote: Hammer Productions was not always making monster movies, and produced many thrillers- often affectionately deemed mini-Hitchcocks- which were just as adept as the studio's creature features at building mounting suspense. This beautifully photographed black-and-white chiller features outstanding acting and direction, all out of a perfectly twisted screenplay by Hammer veteran Jimmy Sangster. The film is constantly readjusting itself, first as a psychological thriller, then as a ghost story, then a perverse whodunit, and all of its sub-genre dips works as well as the last. Christopher Lee plays a relatively small but important part in the movie, but it is the lead performances by Susan Strasberg (a victim of paranoia) and Ronald Lewis (the driver of her father's estate, and the only one who believes her startling ghostly sightings) that drive the film forward at such a wickedly effective pace, and make the final revelation so shocking.
Alex W (es) wrote: This is a pretty good movie with the best part being jack palance with his intimidating hight and a face that was made for a villain. This movie reminds me of a few more recent epidemic movies (contagion, outbreak, zombie movies) they have have that element where one doctor believes the outbreak is coming and everyone around him doesn't. That and many other devices probably originated in this film. Still i wasn't that sucked into the story and the final chase scene has a particularly anti climactic ending.
