Trivia

Writer/director, Richard Chandler, had never intended for there to be a Rachel character in Sons of Perdition. Instead, the character of Melinda was supposed to have died in Rachel's place during the film's final scene. Chandler was unable to coordinate actors moving to varying states, and with the film's small budget, the production team could not pay for temporary room and board. The characters and their respective deaths had to be re-analyzed. See more »

A different kind of religious horror film
6 April 2008 | by (Parts Unknown) – See all my reviews

It's not a typical horror film. There's blood. There's plenty of blood. A ridiculous amount. There's an FX stunt near the end of the film that looks great. Hey, much like most low budget Indy horror films it even has nudity. The difference between this film and others made on a low budget is that Sons of Perdition makes you think. It's not for fans that just want to see boobs and gore. It's very character driven with a detailed plot. In fact, several story lines eventually interact for the film's finale which re-introduces the Lilith character that the prequel, Our Kingdom Come, was based on. Still not to be compared to a big budget Hollywood film such as The Ring, if one can get over the moderate production quality of using b-talent, the film is entertaining and worth checking out for the interesting religious undertones built into each scene within the film. Especially for fans of films such as Exorcist III, Fallen, or HBO's Carnivale.
