Determined to "rescue" his pregnant daughter from an abortion clinic, a religious fanatic and his sons plan a violent firearm assault just as the doctors suspect her pregnancy might not be of this world.
Pro-Life, directed by John Carpenter, written by Drew McWeeny & Scott Swan, tells the story of a young girl trapped inside a clinic, who discovers the only thing more dangerous than her pursuers is the demonic secret that she carries within her. Ron Perlman, Mark Feuerstein, Emannuelle Vaugiere and Caitlin Wachs star. Written by
masters of horror
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
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!!!!!
