Heather Graham and James Purefoy play a couple who desperately want to have a baby. Unfortunately, she has been diagnosed as infertile, and the couple can't afford the medical treatments that might allow her to conceive. Good fortune appears to be smiling on the couple when they are given an opportunity to receive free treatments at a mysterious fertility clinic. The woman is soon the expectant mother of twins, but as her due date draws nearer, she begins to suspect something is wrong, and that she has become the unwilling victim of a pact with evil.

it is imperative that you see "Rosemary's Baby" to understand this
Let me just start this saying that it is an almost shot-for-shot remake of "Rosemary's Baby" with a few added twists. The newcomers to the film are: fertility clinics, hooded killers, and twin girls. Fortunately, most of it remains the same. There are anagrams, the one who can help her dies, her husband spends a lot of time with a man who helps the coven, and stuff like that. The ending is a little tweaked, though- think "The Astronaut's Wife"'s ending (which in itself WAS a shot-for-shot remake of the original). I recommend this, but only if you've seen the original. Several things happen that are unexplained and were only explained in the original. This movie is pretty creepy, and the main character is sympathetic. I have no clue as to why the original title was "Samantha's Child", as she is pregnant with twins. But that's straying far off the point of a review. I think either watch this one then "Rosemary's Baby" or vice versa. The original is unbeatable, and this one is- well, I've seen better, but this is not bad for being straight-to-video at all. If you want bad straight-to-video stillborn babies, try "666". This one is pretty creepy, with very convincing acting but a far-fetched plot. Satan's plasma is contained in a silver whiskey flask inside of a frozen ring-case in a fertility clinic, and some certain people just know that out of nowhere? THAT'S one thing not explained whether or not you actually SEE the original. Still watch this one and have a fun time, or be a snotty reviewer and say it's not worthy at all (Do I hear Ebert?!).
