"One has to give the filmmakers an "A" for effort in trying to come up with something a little original; too bad, that most of what transpires is muddled and far from credible. Adam Taylor Gordon is very good in his role of a thirteen year old boy plagued with horrifying nightmares that result in his sometimes cutting himself. After spending some time under a psychiatrist's care, he is released to his recovering alcoholic father (Brian Wimmer, more effective than usual) and they head home to his estranged mother's house. An "accident" leads them into the home of mysterious farmer Lance Henriksen, giving one of his better recent performances. It soon becomes apparent that kindly Lance has something evil up his sleeve, and that the boy and his father are part of it. Sean Young pops up as the relgiously oriented schoolmarm, offering no evidence of what was once considered a star in the making. The movie has some creepily effective moments and director (actor Don Michael Paul) makes good use of lighting and visuals for atmosphere, but by the end of the movie, it's all so contrived, you wonder what the movie's point was. Could have been so much better."

"This isn't really a bad movie, all things considered. The actors involved turn in decent performances, and Lance Henriksen plays his particular role extremely well. The first 2/3 of the movie work really well at building a tense, sinister atmosphere. The real problem here lies in the details. There are a lot of little moments in the movie that demonstrate a lack of care on the behalf of the director. There is a scene where the old man says he listens to Mozart, and then promptly puts on a record that sounds absolutely nothing like Mozart. There's a game of chess that the old man ponders over for a couple of days, and then the boy beats him in one move. And then there's the slide show/presentation that a girl does in their Bible study class that is pretty silly. One problem that I had with the movie is that it kind of aims itself at a Christian market , but anyone with knowledge of the Bible would know how ridiculous the plot is. The Garden of Eden, for example, is supposed to be guarded so that humans can't enter it, and it definitely isn't anywhere near Oklahoma. And since the devil already got a human to eat from the Tree of Knowledge in the book of Genesis, it doesn't make much sense that his doing it again would achieve much. Also, I'm pretty sure the four horsemen aren't supposed to signal the beginning of the apocalypse by riding out of some guy's barn. Overall I can't help but think that this plot might have been hatched while someone was watching Dogma."
