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 »

Could have been good...
24 April 2019 | by rocknrelicsSee all my reviews

A decent storyline, nice atmospheric setting, but the entire thing is destroyed by the dreadful lead actress, she simply isn't up to the task.

There are a couple of howlers continuity wise, something happens and she says something that does not make sense because of the preceding scene.

So, could have been a good film with better casting.
