OK, but a little dull for me...good for a Prime movie though.

3 stars, because this is just o.k. I found it funny that the two leads were Josh Holloway and Sarah Wayne Callies who are teamed up again for the tv show "The Colony". I guess people like seeing these two together. Anyway, the acting is fine, but others are right in their reviews comparing this to "The Omen". The story is not the same, but it's like the lost chapter where Damien was kidnapped as a child. And speaking of the child in this, I really didn't like him. Now, I know that we aren't supposed to like his character in this, but he just annoyed me regardless. I'm a horror fanatic, and most of my reviews are for these movies. This one just didn't do it for me. It was just an average film that wasn't quite scary enough, and I got a little bored from it. It's not terrible though, and some of you might like it if it's free on Prime.Guide=some foul language, no nudity and some minor gore

I call this movie a cinema great.

I was surprised that this movie did not get more five star reviews. The script could of been written better. Casting Blake Woodruff as David was brilliant. He added some scintillation to his character. I thought the rest of the supporting cast was average. One of the best lines that Blake Woodruff said was when Santa asked him what he wanted. His reply was, "What do you want Santa." David played one kidnapper against the other killing off nearly all the kidnappers. Blake's character David was a mixture of sweet and devious. I think this is a great movie if you don't mind watching some killings.

4/5 - Dunno why it's getting 1s and 2s at all.
Verified purchase
Good cast. Well shot. Pretty tight script. They managed to make a demon kid that wasn't ridiculously OTT or showing way too much power too quickly. This movie was better than it looked like it was going to be. That said, if you're lookin for the usual "possession" garbage movies that are a dime a dozen on streaming, then this one really isn't for you. [Extra Note for Horror Geeks: Dean Cundey, legendary Director of Photography, the guy who shot most of John Carpenter's greatest films and many, many other films since the 1970s was the DP for this one, and you can tell.]

Awkward and Unbelievable
Verified purchase
This one just doesn't hold water. The kidnappers were all either ridiculously stupid, out of control, or nice (!) and nothing really made sense. And the thing with the mother! Please. The ending, in particular, was so unbelievable that it was irritating. The boy was over the top and cliched with his evil child caricature. His identity didn't really make sense, either. If he was possessed, what happened at the end wouldn't stop the demon. I thought at first he was the Anti-Christ, and these bumblers had been stupid enough to kidnap him for something he was going to use to his own ends. That would've been really interesting. But no. It was nothing that original.

A Supernatural-Redemption Thriller
Verified purchase
A great supernatural thriller. It's a shame this film went over my head when it debuted in 2007. Going into to the film I had a full understanding of the general plot (demon kid wreaks havoc) but the twists that came along the end really through me off. The ending provided a resolution that I was satisfied with unlike an array of horror films I've seen over the past decade.

PRETTY GOOD! More a psych-horror than gore and jumps.
Verified purchase
There were also a few laughs here and there - or maybe I just have a sick sense of humor. I even chuckled a bit at the end (again, maybe I need a therapist - IDK?) This movie is EXCELLENT for Free Prime Video. It kept me engaged throughout. Just waiting to see who gets it next - and who's the good vs bad guy/gal. FUN!

There are many, many flaws in this film, but the most glaring one is that it's just...so...boring. Nothing new to see here. Demonic child toying with clueless adults for 90 minutes. To pass the time, I started counting all the continuity gaffes -- there's more than a few. Skip this one and watch 1956's The Bad Seed instead.

Good film ruined by stupid ending
Verified purchase
This movie had a lot going for it. It had a strong cast, decent writing, and a creepy kid reminiscent of Damien Thorne. The plot was sound, the visuals creepy, and it hooked you into the story with nice little twists and solid performances.

And then that ending happened. Had I known the film was going to end like that, I would not have watched it. I will still give it 3 stars because I enjoyed the journey, but the destination sucked.
