Trivia

A similar, almost identical, story on a woman protecting her child from Satanists was also used in the horror movie Bless the Child (2000) starring Kim Basinger and Rufus Sewell, only that time, a little girl was the central figure, not a little boy, like in this movie. See more »

Erm ... anyone remember The Omen?
20 February 2003 | by rottenaddictSee all my reviews

I can normally talk about stuff until even i am bored but this film was so dire that i want to talk about it to warn others to not waste their time with it yet i still don't want to waste anymore of my life on this waste of time film.

Laura Harris is a pretty good actress and always seems wasted in most of her roles, she could be doing something so much more worth while. She's very pretty and always seems to be very good in her roles but even she seems like she can't be bothered to try too hard in this film. Even the "male" in me didn't kick in during the film, it was more like "well she is very, very attractive but this film sucks too much to even keep watching for the good looking actress".

I mean the kid kills all of his pets and the mother (Harris) doesn't really see this as a sign of anything even slightly wrong at all, its like "well i did that at his age, so boys will be boys".

I advise anyone who enjoys a film like this to just watch The Omen or Rosemarys Baby instead, believe me you'll thank me later.

At best i'd give this this film 4/10
