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 »

the thing remake for teenies
6 June 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

I was looking forward for John carpenter's entry in this excellent series but what a mess this was. I didn't like it at all. This isn't another Halloween (1978) or The Thing (1982) two of his masters pieces. This episode was even a bit boring because nothing happened. What really saved Pro-Life are the effects done by Berger and Nicotero.

Dwayne (Ron Perlman) a religious man wants to save his daughter from abortion. She's only 15 years old. But soon at the clinic the doctors come beware that she's being raped only one week earlier and it's already time to give birth. God is telling Dwayne to let the baby live but the baby is made by a demon.

What did work is one gunshot that goes into the neck of a youngster. That looked messy but the demon itself was a pure fifties, a man in a rubber suit monster and once the demon baby is born it did remind me of The Thing but again. Nothing else really happens except a lot of discussions going on. Further we do have one nice CGI gunshot in the head but by then it's all too late.

This is clearly one of the bad things Carpenter has done. It isn't creepy or doesn't have one element of horror in it. Avoid it, you wont regret it.
