Storyline

Tmi and Allie seek shelter in a remote desert compound after becoming lost and stranded. A strange Manson-like character, Preacher (Drago), reluctantly allows them inside with strict orders to be gone by morning and not wander "where you are not invited." At first, Preacher and his mail-order wife Oksana (Nedeljakova) deny the faint screams and cries that emanate from one of the crumbling outbuildings. When Allie sneaks outside to investigate, she discovers that she and Tim have stumbled onto a bizarre cult worshiping an entity that may -- or may not -- dwell inside a haunted little boy.

Are children scary? Yes. --But not in this movie.
6 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There has been a spate of movies of late it seems that want to take us back to the origins or beginning of a successful series. And so here is another. Before this, I only saw one in the series and I don't remember it. All I remember is that there was a bunch of grungy looking kids with no sense of humor and a corn field. Well in this movie they're still grungy-looking and trying their best to look evil.

A man and woman are stranded out in the middle of nowhere because their car broke down. They see some telephone lines and reason that they could follow it to a phone. It takes them to a dusty old shack. They knock and world weary Billy Drago as the "Preacher" eventually comes to the door. At first they are refused help, and as she is storming off in anger and frustration while her boyfriend is trying his best to placate her, the woman mentions her pregnancy and the preacher --being a man of God-- takes pity and invites them in.Things are a bit strained once inside; the couple are trying to have polite conversation seated across from the Preacher but he's oddly uncommunicative. Just sits there thinking WHO KNOWS WHAT while the couple look at each other nervously, desperately trying to fill the silence. A younger woman enters at some point with an accent and we learn later that she's from the Ukraine and that it was kind of a mail-order-bride kind of situation. She takes the man to a phone in another room and charges him almost everything he had in his wallet to use it while imploring him not to tell the Preacher.

After a meal where the Preacher continued his silent ways and it was time to go to their rooms the Preacher breaks his silence and tells the couple in essence to respect his privacy; that they shouldn't go wandering around beyond the outhouse in back. Thus warned, they repair to their room where they feel free to communicate the strangeness of their situation. Shortly the woman indicates that she needs to use the outhouse. At this point reader you're probably saying "Oh-oh!" Well your're right.

Well she goes out and pauses in front of a dingy outhouse a moment, hesitant. Her business is pressing so she puts her reservations aside and goes in. After a nervous p!ss she exits. She hears something; a cry of some kind. She decides to play Nancy Drew and investigate. Later, she frantically reports the findings of her investigations to her boyfriend who seems a bit incompetent to me. He challenges her; wants to make sure there is no mistake. She's miffed and challenges him back. The guy relents as if the last thing he wants is for her to lose it. She sort of towers over him like Wonder Woman dressed in shorts and combat boots so I don't blame him.

Things begin to happen; psychokinetic events. Possibly precipitated by Nancy Drew a.k.a Wonder Woman's investigations. The couple are in a panic and wanting answers. From the preacher they get something about an "evil seed" and that it wants the woman's baby. This movie is not particularly scary, or innovative, just so you know. Notwithstanding, it's not too bad. If it were a TV movie I'd give it a 7 or 8. A good movie if your're home in your socks and underwear, then. But as it is, I can only give it half that. Love, Boloxxxi.
