"Rachel Leigh Cook plays Lucy stanton, a beautiful young girl who wants something exciting to happen. She kind of gets her wish. She meets a man who promises to make her a famous model. what he really intends to do is use to her to reincarnate Lucifer. Rachel was impressive even back when she made this semi horror movie. The actingis incredible from Cook and Christopher McDonald (who plays her father). There are a lot of other striking performances in the film but most of them are actors that I didnt recognize and can't say I have seen since. If you want to watch a movie with a decent story line, very few plot holes, and an exceptionally well acted cast ,this is the film you want. I enjoyed it immensely and have been a fan of Rachel ever since."
Better than I thought...

"I was in a video store the other day when the cover of this movie caught my eye. It looked like a typical, cheesy B-horror movie ("The Crow Flies, The Clock Strikes And the Devil is Due"--words from box cover), but when I saw that Rachael Leigh Cook ("She's All That") starred in it, I knew I had to get it.I was expecting a badly acted/directed horror movie, but surprisingly enough, I thought it was quite good. It really isn't a horror movie per se, it's more of a suspense movie. It did seem longer than 90 minutes as there aren't a lot of high-intensity action scenes (as one reviewer noted). I won't get into the plot as there are enough reviews to do it justice. The ending was both surprising and typical and I won't spoil it as a couple of reviewers have already done (but if you've seen a lot of horror movies, you can already guess the ending).All in all, this movie was better than I thought it would be. It actually has a plot and a decent storyline, much more than I can say for some other horror movies I've seen. It may offend some that are deeply religious, as there are some scenes of pseudo-Satanic rituals (but somehow I don't think they would be watching these kinds of movies if they were). But if you're a fan of the incomparable Rachael Leigh Cook, I highly recommend this movie as it showcases her previous modelling experience quite well."
Y'all seem to be missing The Point.

"What seperates this movie from others of its genre is threefold:
1. The Satanists see themselves as the *good* guys.
2. They have good philosophical arguments for same (how many people does Satan kill in the Bible? God kills millions...)
3. Erm. The ending. Can't tell you; spoiler.
Trust me, though: the subtleties of the above make this movie, to me at least, completely unlike any other movie in this genre that I've seen, and I've seen my share.

"In watching this okay thriller, I found myself wondering just how many different ways Satan is planning to come back to earth. This new one about the eighteen angels is one of the wackiest so far, coming supposedly from the Etruscan Book of the Dead. First of all, they get eighteen angels, but only need one? And then when 17 of them are burned to a crisp, what did the purpose serve?
Writer David Seltzer must still harbor Satanic feelings, as he is the one who created Damien Thorpe in "The Omen." While that seventies film provided lots of chills and great actors, "Angel" gives us an undebatedly beautiul Rachael Lynn Cooke, a sturdy father in Christopher McDonald and an overacting Maximilian Schell, but it's all been done so much in the past, there's little suspense or thrills involved. Only Wendy Crewson's spiraling fall is disturbing and upsetting.
David, if you're going to write more Satanic resurrections, try some more imagination, and maybe let the good guys win every once in a while."
