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 »

Child of Darkness, Child of Light: Not one but two Immaculate Conceptions! One will be The Second Coming, the other The Antichrist! But which is which? The Vatican sends a priest to investigate. There is also have a Prophecy of The Virgin Mary which is only incrementally revealed. Teenage bullies, vicious crows, black clad assassins on motorbikes! Even a friendly pet dog is turned savage by the powers of darkness. Not great but considering that it's a TV movie from 1991 not bad either. Entertaining and worth watching. Showing again on the Horror Channel on Monday 4th January at 11.00 AM. 6/10.
