The Relic has had some harsh reviews from a number of people. But I must say what a good film it was. The film takes horror movies back to the way they are best. It left film fans with a sense of what a horror film is all about. The cast of Penelope Ann Miller and Tom Sizemore carry the film to a point that you are on the edge of your seat. The effects are some of the best I have seen in a long time. When I came out of the film, I was hoping they will do the next book but it does not look like it. If you do like to see a horror film that makes you look over your shoulder when you go in the basement when see this.
