Trivia

The novel "Virgin" , used for the movie "Child of Darkness, Child of Light", has been re-titled as "Cradle and All" around the early 2000's and been re-released in hardback this year. See more »

Goofs

At one point the Dr. Phinney claims to have thoroughly examined Margaret's vaginal tissue and that he found it 'totally undisturbed', from which he claims that she has "never even masturbated". There is no test or examination that can give this result so if he has done this all he has done is carried out an invalid test and, essentially, sexually assaulted her. We're supposed to trust this guy? See more »

Eh, not so great
1 December 2001 | by klschmidtSee all my reviews

This movie is about the apocolyptic birth of two babies to two virgins. Very big on religious themes. It's far from a great movie, but it is based on the book VIRGIN by James Patterson. I had read the book years ago, so had more of an interest in seeing the movie. It follows what I remember fairly accurately. This movie can be considered "horror" because of the sinister aspects of the visions and occurrences that the girls experience.
