When the demon breaks through the door, he breaks most of it away and starts to walk through. In the next shot, he breaks it again, identically to the first time, and then just stands there. See more »

So maybe it's a good thing Carpenter isn't directing much anymore
29 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A list of words to describe "Pro-Life": garbage, excrement, terrible, appalling, awful, embarrassing, horrible, abhorrent, pathetic, trash, abominable, atrocious, etc.

As you may have guessed, everything about this is bad, really bad. Ron Perlman couldn't look any more bored with his performance here, the whole time he just looks off in the distance while monotonously speaking his lines; the story is dumber than its synopsis; the violence effects are over-the-top, one small handgun bullet can't blow a man's head half-off; the demon looks like a suit you could buy at a Halloween shop; the demon-baby looks like a design a 13-year-old would come up with.

Before I forget the most important topic I wanted to address with this review, John Carpenter. John, if you miraculously decided to take time off smoking cigarettes/playing video games/watching NBA games and instead are reading some IMDb user reviews for your abomination that is "Pro-Life," I'd like to let you know that this has been your worst installment throughout your career, and "The Ward" wasn't much better - actually it was much better when it was directed by Martin Scorsese and called Shutter Island. Anyways, um, yeah John... this sucks!!!!!
