Trivia

Astaroth is named as the devil and male in this film. Historically, Astaroth was the Canaanite goddess of love and was known as Ishtar to the Babylonians. Her name appears in the Bible to generically refer to pagan goddesses. She appears as a demon in the TV show Blood Ties (2006) and in PSI Factor: Chronicles of the Paranormal: Sacrifices (1999).

I can take it or leave it
16 May 2003 | by (Pocono Summit, PA) – See all my reviews

Yup - it's other-than-nice, neat ending allows for follow-up activity. The acting is capable; but the storyline ain't too original: a woman's baby is gonna be the devil. Okay - maybe it's a LITTLE different in that, after conception, the disciples say that the parents must no longer love each other. Well, we'll just keep moving the brain-drained mom around and hurling obstacles at the dad. As of this writing, I thought that I'd break the tie of positive and negative comments, but - wouldn't you know it - my vote was a five: right down the middle. How's that for non-committal? To date, however, more balloters are above the half.
