Ryder seems serious enough, but there's no real evidence that she's even trying to act...

For a thriller about demonic possession and the birth of the antichrist, it's curiously flat.

On those occasions when the movie makes sense, the implications are often so idiotic that we wish it didn't.

Oh my God! THIS is what we're having for dinner?? AGAIN???

We've been down this hellish road so many times that, when the movie culminates in a solemn but goofy black mass, we chuckle rather than shudder.

This is a limp, dull, predictable film, full of semi-creepy imagery and not a whit of brains or genuine thrills.

Winona Ryder is definitely an actress who is not into having a good time in movies.

The anticlimactic, is-that-all-there-is ending winds everything up not with a bang, but a whimper.

Alas, look is everything here and storytelling and characters are next to nothing, so what emerges is oddly ineffectual and uninvolving -- visually striking set pieces set loose in a void.

It's a film whose aura can only be described as 'tortured.' That word also approximates the feeling one gets while trying to sit through it.
Christopher Null
January 1, 2000
The only moments of terror in this ostensible horror flick are brought about by the appearance of the words 'Producer: Meg Ryan,' giving you chills in a way that only those words can.
| Original Score: 1.5/5

The tedious storytelling sucks the life and soul out of the characters far more effectively than Satan ever manages.

Quite possibly the silliest of the recent bunch of Satan- is- coming- to- eat- your- soul movies.

Certainly nothing to write home about, but compared to its recent predecessors it's nothing to be ashamed of.

Está destinada a acabar directamente en el infierno correspondiente a las peores películas del año

Does anyone really think they have an original satanic thriller up their sleeve?

'Deliver us from evil...' says the ads. Deliver us from movies like this!

There's a good reason this lackluster fright-fest sat on the shelf for two years. It's nothing more than a tired Winona Ryder vehicle taking advantage of the topic du jour -- demonic possession.
| Original Score: 1/4
