Tough issue; good film
28 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

John Carpenter's Pro-Life is a film that will draw out plenty of conversation among fans and non fans alike. The subject matter is abortion and the right to life. In it, a 15 year old girl finds herself raped and impregnated by a demon. One week later she is ready to give birth and so she heads to an abortion clinic to have the pregnancy terminated before the demon child can be born. Once inside ,however, matters get complicated as her father and brothers storm the clinic in an attempt to not let her go through with the abortion. The father believes he hears the voice of god telling him that the baby must live. Pro-Life is a nasty little thriller that borrows from Carpenter's remake of The Thing. While the demon baby is a bit rubbery for my liking, the full fledged demon suit is very nice. There's also some extremely effective gunshot wounds that are among the best I've ever seen. All in all a thought provoking and excellent episode. A welcome return to form along with Sounds Like after the dismal Family and V Word.
