Gothic Horror is not dead, it is unborn; a film art masterpiece
21 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"They shall have a bed of hell-fire ... thus do we reward the unjust"

This is one of the finest horror films I have seen in a long time. It is terrifying and heartbreaking.

The musical score and cinematography are brilliant. The use of color, and shadow are masterful. The acting is excellent.

The tension is so great that the quite tame scary parts are nearly unbearable.

Some of the imagery is horrific.

I know that I am experiencing a great horror film when I need to take a rest period at some point and then return to it. I did that with "The Exorcist" and "Suspiria" and I had to do that with this film.

Unfortunately, like so many horror films, the ending seems like an afterthought. Very disappointing. I wish the film makers put as much thought and creativity into the ending as they had the rest of the film.

This film will get neither the recognition, nor the distribution it deserves given the theme and the politics of abortion in the mainstream film industry. Too bad. Thank you to Pathfinder Pictures for making this film available on DVD.

This is a "must see - not to be missed" film for the fan of Gothic Horror.
