4.0 out of 5 stars Omen-esque horror, 25 Aug. 2010
By 
This review is from: Case 39 [DVD] (DVD)
Although this film starts off slowly, it soon develops into a great horror film mid way, and really cranks up the tension by the end. Yes this story line has been done many times in the past, but for me this was one of the better versions of this Omen style demonic horror tale. Renee Zellweger (Bridget Jones's Diary) was very strong as the lead, and didn't need to carry the whole film on her shoulders here thanks to the good supporting cast. Of note 15 year old co star Jodelle Ferland, who also voices the little sisters in the PC game Bioshock, was top notch as the Damien style character, she brought across the sweet innocence of a child & could turn into her alter ego superbly well at a drop of a hat, an actress to keep an eye on for sure. Ian McShane (Deadwood) , Bradley Cooper (The A-Team) & Adrian Lester (Hustle) add gravitas in support.

In conclusion, I liked the film allot to be fair, as i say, for me this was a nice, well presented/plot twist film considering the somewhat predictable story line. Obviously those who watch allot of horror films or have a high threshold for horror, wont flinch too much when the scary stuff starts to kick off, but those who don't will probably be sleeping with the lights on(and door bolted ?) ;0) Recommended.
