Storyline

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.

"Rosemary's Baby" and "Godsend" Cloning
27 June 2005 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The low middle class and young school teacher Samantha (Heather Graham) and her husband, the unknown writer Craig Howard (James Purefoy), move to an insemination clinic in Lakeview, a small town two hours far from New York City, for a free insemination treatment in the "Spiritus Reasearch Clinic". Samantha gets pregnant of twins and the life of the couple economically improve with the unexpected success of the book of Craig. However, Samantha notes that a hooded stranger is stalking her, and she becomes paranoid when she realizes that the place is indeed a cloning clinic and she was impregnated with the devil's seed.

Yesterday, when I saw "Blessed", I felt myself in a "déjà vu" situation, with the feeling that I have already seen this movie before, which is indeed a clone of "Rosemary's Baby" and "Godsend". There is nothing new in this plagiarized screenplay, which is dedicated to the memory of David Hemmings. This great British actor deserves a better homage to his name than this non-original story. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): Not Available
