Not a horror movie a HORRIBLE movie
7 July 2000 | by See all my reviews

This movie was pretty bad and took alot of effort to sit through. It's based on the book Virgin by James Patterson but only very loosely (the book is much better). As i understand it, this was originally a made for cable (USA network) movie..which explains alot. Not only was the plot pretty ridiculous, but i..being Catholic..found many of the scenes offensive. The premise sounds great (sort of a combination of Rosemary's Baby and The Omen) but the acting and the story were laughable. The only reason i sat through until the end was because i had read the book and wanted to see how far the movie deviated from the book. It deviated alot...and not in a good way.
