Storyline

The boy Sam is tormented by dreadful visions and nightmares and self-inflicts injures to his body. After a period in the hospital, Dr. Cairns tells Sam's father David that the boy is affected by the divorce of his parents and a period together with him would be good for Sam. David travels with Sam in his truck but Sam sees a spirit on the road and pulls the steering wheel off his father, provoking a car accident. Out of the blue, the farmer Ben Zachary rescues them and offers a job to David in his farm. He accepts the offer and enrolls Sam at the local school. Sam has Bible classes with Miss Grace Chapman and sooner he leans that Mr. Zachary is the devil and the place is the Garden of Eden. Further, Zachary has an evil plan for David.

Goofs

After the automobile accident, Sam climbs out of bed in his bare feet. Sam walks out of the bedroom and the camera zooms in on Sam's bare feet as he continues down the hall. We see another shot of Sam's bare feet as he ambles down the stairs to the kitchen. Sam's dad, who is on the front porch, sees Sam through the kitchen door and calls out to him. As Sam instantly runs to meet his dad, we clearly hear the sound of Sam's bare feet slapping on the hardwood floor as he races across it. But as he barrels through the kitchen door onto the porch, Sam suddenly and miraculously has his boots on. See more »

Finally, a movie I liked
24 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You don't have to have big budget production and CGI FX coiling out the rear to make a great movie, and movies like this proves it so.

The movie is basically about a problem young boy named Sam as in Samuel as in 'Judgement of God', turning his vices then into virtues within himself.

It has to do with the imperfections of his father and the trials that he has to overcome within himself once he's found a cause (the love for his father)to come out majestically to defeat the devil's plan to reverse the apocalypse.

Lawrence Hendrickson (who's a great actor) plays an excellent devil. He's odd, but old, he's calm but cunning but for the most part, subtle in his plans and not fire blazing like Al Pacino's portrayal (btw, The Devils' Advocate was an excellent film in its own rite).

The movie is very symbolic in a lot of ways, bloody at times, and a lot of one eyed, lip sewn shut specters, flaming swords, and horses.

The movie do kind of get's annoying with the ghosts whispering his name but plays out in the end for me. All in all, the plot isn't very complex but original and played out well.

I suggest you go to your local crap-buster's and rent a copy and judge for yourself.
