I was intrigued by the book and wanted to watch the movie. I found the book to be much more engaging than the movie, and the movie was great. I loved the contrast between the beauty of the landscape and the violence of the town. I was drawn to the character of Ann, the oldest of the seven children, and her struggles to keep her sanity, while the other children are being murdered. I also loved the fact that they did not follow the book, but instead added on a few scenes, as well as the fact that the director, Jonas Dudek, chose to cut a few scenes that were very difficult to translate into the movie. I think the movie is fantastic. It is the first movie that I have ever seen that I have enjoyed more than the book.

This is a movie with lots of good acting, and some great casting. But it's hard to believe that all the cast was in it - The great roles went to Genevieve Bujold and Mariel Hemingway. The two are very close friends, and they are very good in this movie. And I also think that the real stars of this movie were George C. Scott, Denholm Elliott, and Richard Farnsworth. They were great as they could be. These four are really strong and give the movie its most powerful parts. The movie is based on a short story by a mystery writer, Robert C. Parker, who wrote "The Color of Money" and "The Big Chill" (both also directed by Peter Hyams). The film was based on a play by Marjorie Lyles, but it also includes other great actors and actresses. This movie had a very strong and personal story to tell, and it was very interesting to watch it. It is an old-fashioned horror/thriller, and it shows a side of Hollywood that has been largely neglected by the modern world. It was made in 1983, and it's considered a classic, although it is not a very good movie. I liked it and recommend it. 7/10

Very difficult to sit through a movie. If you like a story, and don't mind waiting for the storyline, then watch this movie. It's a very different story and it has a very long time frame. And, you must remember that, the movies from the late 60's and 70's had such a high rating, so it's not like this movie is garbage. This is a good movie. I recommend this to everyone.

I was so impressed with this movie. I was expecting the movie to be a bunch of movie cliches that most people have seen in other movies, but this movie was different. The story was so well thought out and the characters so realistic. I don't think there was a single character that I didn't like or felt they were written poorly. It was amazing how a movie like this could be made, and I can't wait to see the sequel.

I will not argue with any of you, I won't do anything you want me to. I am only interested in what is left on the table. If you like films, go see this film. If you are new to the genre, see it. If you are looking for a treatise on how to tell a story well in a different way. see it. If you think this film is a waste of money, go see that same film with your boyfriend, they'll probably like it more.

I was really surprised by this film. I thought it would be a lot like the book (which is a little different) but it was much more. I liked the characters, the action scenes, and the idea of the movie being about a witch who makes a bunch of people do things for her. But it wasn't as good as I thought it would be. The acting is decent. There are a couple of characters I thought would be a little better. As for the rest of the characters, it's okay. The movie does have some good moments. I just felt like I wasted my time watching it. Maybe if I didn't read the book I wouldn't have seen this as it would have made it more interesting. It's still a decent movie though. There are a couple of scenes that are really powerful. This movie will probably work better on the stage than on the big screen though. I like the idea of it being an original movie and it being a Canadian film.

We have seen the most horrible creatures in movie history. We have seen all the good guys, and the bad guys. What is the secret of life? The first good guy we have seen is the killer spider. This movie is about the three children and their relationship. At the end, the two will face the three evil creatures. This is a very good movie, and a lot of fun to watch.

First of all, let me say that I like to see some depth to the film. This movie is "straight forward" in that it tells the story of a 17 year old girl who thinks she's been visited by a ghost. Her mother is an atheist, and her father, who is a Buddhist monk, is a bit of a skeptic. So the storyline is fairly straight forward. We get the basic setup in the first 15 minutes. There's a theme of faith, but also of doubt, and the theme of doubt is dealt with in the form of the character of Faith, who is a young woman. She believes in God, but is haunted by demons that possess her mother. Her mother says she's not going to believe Faith, and Faith begins her journey of self-discovery. Faith eventually changes Faith's mother's mind, and Faith becomes a believer in her mother's mother. Of course, Faith and her mother start a relationship, and Faith begins to question her beliefs. This is the basic story. The story shifts gears, and Faith begins to question her beliefs. But Faith's mother doesn't know what to do about Faith. So Faith goes to the Buddhist temple and gets a different perspective on the whole thing. There are several other characters that are part of the story. The main one is Faith's mother. I really like the way the story is structured, it keeps the viewer wondering what is going on. It's really a fun story, and the film is visually interesting. I would like to see a longer movie, and it would be nice to see more depth to Faith and her mother. The acting is all good, and the movie is worth seeing. I give it a B. It's worth seeing, but don't expect a masterpiece. I would recommend it, if you have a chance to watch it.

I had a hard time finding the right movie to watch for my husband's birthday, but I had to give this one a shot. I'm glad I did. This is a very well made movie that will stick with you long after the credits roll. It is a wonderful story that will be remembered. I would recommend this movie to anyone who has ever been on a journey. It is a story of faith, hope, and the power of forgiveness. It is a movie that will make you think about how you could be a better person. I can't wait to see it again. I highly recommend it!

The film was well acted and very interesting to watch. There are many things that are taught in the film, which could be interesting to those who are interested in learning about witchcraft and how it affects people in society. However, the film is not very clear about what the film is about. It is very confusing when a film is so good, but the entire film has too many things that can be confusing. It would have been better if the film would have been more clear about the meaning of the film and not give too many answers.

I think that the film is somewhat of a romance, but also has a message. There is a message that people have to see, and the world has to be watched, just like the original. The fact that there was a priest that the witch sought is a nice message that the world needs. She was searching for a prince to be her husband, that has to have a strong reason for that marriage. People who have to deal with life and how to live should watch this movie, and the audience will come out of the movie with a good feeling.

A good picture and excellent performances.The story is definitely not a Hollywood film, however it still remains interesting and enjoyable.

This movie is mostly a reflection of the lives of the more than two thousand young people that were forced into religious indoctrination at one time or another, from the hundreds of thousands to the hundreds of thousands. At least that's the impression I got. And while the movie does show that some of these young people did learn a valuable lesson, it also shows that the damage that was done to these kids was done with the specific intent of keeping them in a perpetual state of fear. They were always being told that they would be cursed and lost, even when they were innocent. It was used as a form of guilt and shame for the children to be shamed, tortured, and tormented for the rest of their lives. Not to mention the psychological damage they suffered. It is amazing that the film makers didn't want to tell the story about what they were really doing to these children. It's true that the young people were often encouraged to choose their own religion as well, which in the end proved to be a very harmful choice. They were told that they were being punished for not following the religious tradition. But the children's lives were not nearly as important as the adults were. In fact, the main reason they chose to believe in the religious tradition was because the adults told them that it was the only way to get along in the world. They were told that in the end it was only the family that could be trusted, and that they had to trust them. And in the end, it was these adults that were the only people that could take care of the kids. And when the kids were sick, it was the adults that could take care of them. If the adults had lived up to their responsibilities and taught the kids good values, it is hard to imagine that the kids would be this scared and withdrawn. One reason I think that the movie doesn't really show the adults in the most positive light is because it was made to show the problems that were being done to the kids. That's why the parents and teachers were never seen in a positive light. I believe that most of the kids got a chance to get out and leave when they turned thirteen. I've never known a kid that turned thirteen without getting sick and having nightmares about being put in a Christian school. I think that that's why most of the children stayed away from the Christian religion, because they weren't fully prepared for the serious damage they were going to get when they turned thirteen. I think that is the whole point of the movie. It's an honest reflection of what happened,

This is a movie about a bunch of kids. Two adults, one child. It's really not the most interesting thing ever. It doesn't stand up as a movie. It's the kind of movie where you just think it's going to be another typical Hollywood fare, like you want it to be. Then you think, "Oh, wait.it's not like that. There are things going on." I think that's what this movie tries to do. But it just never gets the chance to do anything like that. So it's pretty ordinary. You might like it if you like movies about kids and kids movies. The film doesn't do anything. I gave it a seven because the performances are pretty good, but the movie is nothing special.

A documentary that's an effort to identify and confront the monstrous head of the demon lord, Ordo and his legion of fiends. I liked it as a standalone movie and as a story that explores the demons in our psyche. But the movie is limited by the idea that we know more about demons and their head than we do about human beings. Which is, of course, a far more satisfying perspective.

In this film, director/writer/actor Sam Taylor-Johnson has created a portrait of a teenage girl who is a victim of her environment. Her story is a true story that I've heard many times, but never seen on film. I felt compelled to see this film because of the director's first film, "A Million Ways to Die in the West", and this one was also released to the public. I can only hope that Sam Taylor-Johnson continues to explore the stories of young girls who are victims of their environment. There are many stories of girls who are victims of their environment, and Sam Taylor-Johnson has captured this theme perfectly. I can't wait for his next film.
