great movie
20 February 2003 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

I just see this movie and I think it is not bad at all... It has a strong christian message that I have never seen in other horror movies. It has a clear message, the "devil" is always around us but with the prayer you can fight the evil. The victory of the good (over the evil), comes from God. There was one moment, almost in the end of the movie in which I was expecting that the mother of the child would have kill the son, but in the end, she went to batist the child, symbol that she belive in the love of God (the batism wins the sin). The devil in conclusion is always there, and the only way to fight is by beliving in God. Doesn´t sound like horror movie... nice!
