Problematic and cliché killer child effort
13 October 2015 | by kannibalcorpsegrinderSee all my reviews

Following the tragic death of their son, a grieving family is offered the opportunity to see him again only to realize they have the demonic spawn of the Antichrist in their care and must try to prevent his true form from appearing.

This here was a rather disappointing but still enjoyable effort with some decent parts about it. For the most part, what tends to work here is the rather enjoyable amount of action on display here, which tends to come off rather nicely here by bringing a lot of exciting moments. The first few times this happens, from the initial reaction to the dog and the strange looks and glances he gave to the chilling way he would pop up everywhere during any kind of conversation, even if it dealt with him or not, is certainly enough to feel that something is going on before it gets to the rather fun display of powers in the church eruption. This is quite a big, gateway scene that fully explores the power within through an explosive action-sequence that features the priest catching fire and the subsequent race to put him out amidst the panicked crowds and then using the supernatural powers to explode the stained-glass windows and using them to wound a fellow priest on the scene gives this a truly strong sequence. Likewise, the playground attack of him gathering objects through supernatural means and flinging them through the air with supernatural winds while killing off dozens of people is a fantastic moment that comes off nicely as well as the police ambush on their hotel hideout where the drawing of the murderous crows is sent into battle against the agents and bringing about tons of great deaths and action with the demonic-influenced creatures generating a lot of fun throughout here. The resulting battle in the head-room and chase back to the house is all fine enough, and along with the decent gore here make this one good enough to become watchable although there are some big flaws on display here. The main issue here is the film's main premise, which is surprisingly never once brought up as anything more than a means to move the film along and never once questioned or even given much consideration as for why anyone would welcome that to begin with, and the need for doing so is never given here other than parental guilt. Also, this has the unfortunate problem of literally requiring everyone around him to be the biggest morons on the planet for their cluelessness at what's going on, for it's one thing to feel parental guilt and remorse over what happened which may make them turn a blind eye to the proceedings, but it's another when this one does such a fantastic job at demonstrating his obvious evil tendencies that to not recognize it after the priests' murder or the incident at the gas- station which should've been the biggest clue something was wrong here. That is so incompetently handled that it really sticks out in here, much like the lousy CGI on display does to crop up here from time to time. Even further, that this relies so heavily on borrowed material is quite troubling, really making this out to be lifted from so many other sources that it can't even find its own identity in here. These issues are what really hold this one down.

Rated Unrated/R: Violence, Language and violence-against-animals.
