The Seventh Sign Review

Image for The Seventh Sign

As signs of apocalypse mount around the world in the wake of wanderer Father Lucci, pregnant American Anny Quinn (Moore) fears disaster for her unborn child.


A fundamentalist horror movie with Jurgen Prochnow as a mysterious lodger who comes around causing the Apocalypse, Demi Moore pregnant with a child who can avert the end of all things, Michael Biehn as a lawyer whose client is set to die a martyr's death in the chair, and more theological speculation to the minute than you can possibly digest.

It's a skillfully gloomy movie, with some nice plague footage, but despite the sterling efforts of the cast, it's a silly picture. Incidentally, how come everyone got so worked up about the Last Temptation Of Christ but went easy on this movie, in which Our Redeemer is portrayed as a neon-eyed horror movie psycho?

Has everything in the right place but somehow doesn't seem to hit the spot.
