WARNING! POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD...

0I'd really like to rate this one better, but I think I probably gave it one star too many as it is. The production values are good, as is the cast, which features some respectable star power in the form of Malcolm McDowell and some great veteran character actors you're sure to recognize, even if you may not know their names. Anyway, for all the build up about "the list" and the power it has, we're left to scratch our heads and wonder precisely what that power is and how it works, and WHY. Apparently, "the list" has the power to kill, at least when its mysterious powers are summoned by placing one's thumb over the bloody thumbprint initiates are required to place over their signature after signing "the list." We're also left to wonder exactly why the power of "the list" can be so easily broken when it's been repeatedly described as having such a potent force behind it. Apparently, the spell, if you want to call it that, is released if you simply yell at the guy who cast it. That's easy!

Too many questions left unanswered, including one that doesn't even have anything to do with the apparently supernatural force behind "the list." One can easily understand why a group of wealthy Southerners might seek to band together to hide and protect their assets, but sneaking them out of the country and investing them in foreign deposits seems good enough to me. Why go so far as to make a financial arrangement into a pact with the Devil, or whom or whatever gives "the list" it's eerie power? No wonder that one guy didn't want to sign it. Overall, not bad for a time waster, but not the suspense fest it could have been.

Great Suspense Christian Film
Verified purchase
I thought this was a wonderfully made Christian film, it does not hammer you with Christianity although that would not be a bad thing, director did a great job. I think I really enjoyed the message, light does overcome darkness, I’m also one that loves Charleston, SC, and Wilmington, NC where most of this was actually filmed and I’m a native of Charlotte, NC, which is one of the locations the book is based on so this got me curious about the movie to begin with. I just recently watched this, I’ve always enjoyed Hilarie Burton’s work on Hallmark so this was a treat, I think the film did well exposing truth, there really are a lot of spiritual aspects the movie touches on including secret society themes/demonic activity, these really do exist today, the continuing theme of prayer really overcomes, prayers work, faith works is really a positive. I would definitely say this is a faith-based family friendly film. If you don’t appreciate Christianity may not be for you but give it a shot maybe it will help you.

I had to strain to give it two stars.

I ordered this DVD by mistake. I thought it was the other movie by the same name (which is very good). I kept this one and watched it anyway. I had to strain to give it two stars. I assume this was intended to be about the power of prayer, which is an admirable topic. However, this movie is near to awful. Early on I kept wondering if it was about voodoo. In fact, nothing was very clear at all. I think it was supposed to be a Christian faith based story. My husband, who likes faith-based films, laughed from time to time. The movie was rather hokey. The characters were less than believable. The filmmakers could learn from the Kendrick brothers about how to put together a faith-based film. I hope to God that the book on which it is based is better.

Enjoyed it very much

I really enjoyed the movie, myself. One has to understand the power of blood covenants and the spiritual warfare and its reality to really appreciate the story and plot line, I guess. I'm typically critical of Christian movies as they are usually sub-par but this one kept me captive well enough, with enough solid acting to keep it flowing.

Believe the negative reviews
Verified purchase
This movie has good cinematography, but is terrible in almost every other conceivable way. The storytelling is awful and was set up to share propaganda. After it finished, all I could think of is what did I just waste my time watching. Believe the negative reviews and skip this movie.

Growing up in the low country as I did the views of the city of Charleston the culture and the references to landmarks and lake Moultrie where i spent many rewarding days fishing with friends, took me back home in my mind. The story was intriguing and the acting excellent, one of the best movies I have enjoyed in awhile.

Don't waste your time
Verified purchase
This is a terrible movie and a complete waste of time. It lured me in with what appeared to be an actual plot and story line. There was neither. It was slow and dragged on and on, and went nowhere. They finally got to the point in the last 2 minutes and it was a huge letdown. Reminded me of some of the crappy religious films I had to suffer through in the 1960s.
