Reviews [click links to read more]:

“There’s very little going on and absolutely no suspense to any of it aside from a few failed scares not generated by a creepy old bag lady who pops up on the street to hiss menacingly at Donald’s wife every now and then. There are, however, endless amounts of speechifying. We get business talk, religious gobbledygook talk, and occasional family squabbling.” Dread Central

” …just cribs from a bunch of Devil movies, most notably End of Days, with a handful of Devil’s Advocate and a dash of Omen III for good measure. I’ve certainly seen worse from the company, but it was quite disappointing to see that they didn’t follow on the Final Destination-esque death scenes this time around – in fact the few deaths are pretty dull even by average standards.” Horror Movie a Day

“The acting was sub-par and I felt like I was watching three movies all mashed into one (Stigmata, The Omen, and The Devils Advocate) […] There was nothing I would classify as gore, and there was very little blood. Given you have such demonic material to work with as a sequel looking at the first movie, hardly anything was brought out. Not once was I tense, scared, or sickened.” Quiet Earth
