Father Henry goes to a local police detective and they learn that a troubled teen with a dark past has recently moved to town and has set his sights on the cop's beautiful, young daughter. Father Henry, who turns out to have secrets of his own, finds himself pitted against a demonic force more diabolically evil and twisted than any of them could have imagined. Written by
Heather was at her mother's graveside where the dates of birth and death are given as 1982 - 2012. Given Heather's presumed age of 15-16 she would have been born in 1998-99 when her mother was 16. However, Vinnie Jones was born in 1965 which could have made the character John Elliot a whole 17 years older than his child bride. See more »
If you are old enough to remember both "Carrie" and "The Omen", this is the two wrapped into one; even the script writer couldn't resist referencing the latter. That being said, it remains to be seen if this idea is any more plausible than Vinnie Jones playing the detective, his English accent explained away conveniently by his having emigrated with his wife, now deceased.
In "The Omen", the father of the Devil's spawn was totally unconvinced by the renegade priest; it was only much later that realisation dawned on him. Here, the detective allows himself to be convinced much more easily, probably because the villain of the piece has his eye on his daughter.
Should any detective be quite so gullible? Well, in the UK at present, the police are frantically searching for a mythical paedophile ring at the heart of the establishment, and to date they have turned over the homes of one recently deceased former Home Secretary and our most decorated soldier, who at the age of 91 must be thoroughly bemused. The informant in that case claims that three underage boys have been murdered by this ectoplasmic conspiracy, so what price a humble detective from Hicksville, USA?
Having said that, there is a splendid if dishonest twist in the climax, and only the tiniest of hints, easily missed, that it would play out so.
