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 »

Two women who are both virgins become pregnant under mysterious circumstances. One of the women will give birth to the child of god, while the other woman will give birth to the child of satan. Made for USA television movie is a poor Omen / Rosemary's Baby rip off that happens to be pretty pointless, uninvolving, slow moving, and dull.

Rated PG-13; Violence and Adult Themes.
