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

Spent $1.98 and want my money back!
21 December 2001 | by RoboSlaterSee all my reviews

Someone should tell the director and writer that there is a huge difference between a heroine who is naively innocent and one who is criminally negligent in ignoring the obvious goings-on and behavior problems of her little boy (the kid kills his guinea pig on a stake and then hangs his dog alive and this mother accepts a "boys will be boys" explanation!? What is THAT possibly about? Not even a suggestion of counseling/therapy for the boy... The unintended real horror of the movie is the writing).

Luckily, I spent only $1.98 for this flick where plot, continuity, and creativity were kept to a minimum; and overwrought ham acting ruled the day. Still, I'm taking it back for a refund; it's not even worthy of a garage sale since any buyer would know where I live and either try to return it or vandalize my yard after watching even ten minutes of this load of celluloid waste.
