In the vein of THE OMEN, this movie is fairly predictable until the last half hour, when it manages to both surprise you and elevate the movie above being a ROSEMARY'S BABY clone. A virginal woman is impregnated on her wedding night--and not by her husband. Her kid grows up and he's a bit strange, particularly in the way that he likes to kill animals and how he can talk backwards. The woman's husband, a sociopath, seems to be the boy's guardian. A mysterious man tells her what is going on--and that she must kill her son in order to stop the coming apocalypse. But is he who he says he is? Or is something else going on? A recommended satan child movie.
