Director:  Chuck Russell

Starring: Kim Basinger, Jimmy Smits, Rufus Sewell

A young girl with supernatural powers is hunted by a Satanic cult.

There are few original elements in this film, which finds producer Mace Neufeld still milking the same seam he mined in the four Omen movies. The movie recycles many familiar ideas (most recently given a cursory run through in End of Days), but the film has a enough talent behind it (Nightmare on Elm Street 3 director Chuck Russell, Tomb Raider cinematographer Peter Menzies Jnr., and several key members of David Cronenberg’s regular design crew) to carry itself with some style. The film has a slightly soft 2.35:1 anamorphic transfer , and a well-crafted 5.1 sound mix (at 448kbps).

Extras include a handful of British TV spots that aren’t on the American version of the disc, an easy-going commentary by Russell and Special Effects Supervisor Joe Hynek, the theatrical trailer and about ten minutes of on-set interviews and snatches of behind the scenes footage (called A Look Inside on the packaging).
