Too Realistic for Its Own Good--Where's Damien?
I don't know about this one. Like a lot of people, I must admit that I expected a film somewhere along the lines of "The Omen." Instead, the film relied on psychology's realism. Even though the story can happen in real life, I thought it would be more fun. The "evil" child proved to be a formidable enemy but I think he could've done more to make everyone's lives miserable. The first hour is really slow and the creepy piano got a bit too repetitive. I usually like implications between pauses and unsaid words but oddly enough, this time around, I didn't appreciate it. Instead, I was mad that it left me hanging, wanting something more. When the end credits started rolling, I couldn't help but think, "That's it? Wow."
