"This is horror for intellectuals. People who want non-stop violence and gore are going to dislike this movie. People who like The Ring and Rosemarie's Baby will probably really appreciate this movie.
I thought it was really creepy. The acting was great. The plot was interesting (similar to Rosemarie's Baby though). The ending was freaky.
Overall it was a really good horror flick.
Check it out.
"Blessed" = Huh???

"You'll be scratching your head when you finish watching this movie, no question. The fact that the entire movie is predictable should be enough to give it a 1 star rating but I gave it 4 stars simply for the fact that the characters' dialogue and conversations most wouldn't dare touch in this day in age.
Let's get the obvious out of the way: It's predictable and is in no way scary. This movie is hands-down the most random film I've ever watched from start to finish. Throughout most of it, it doesn't seem like the film knows how it's supposed to play out. Heather Graham's character sports has the stereotypical blonde personality and is so overdone you're hoping she dies giving birth at the end.
Perhaps the only real surprise in the movie is I didn't expect Graham's chracter getting a neutral ending. It's not happy since she witnesses her offspring's (twin girls) demonic powers firsthand at a halloween party and it's not bad since she isn't possessed by her unborn and must be stopped by any means neccessary. Overall, I'd say there was bad acting on everyone's part.
I'd say rent but pass on buy."
