The Calling (2003)

THE CALLING is an updated ROSEMARY’S BABY / OMEN hybrid that’s actually good! I was highly skeptical at first, figuring that it would most definitely stink. Well, shock of shocks, I loved this movie! Laura Harris (Habitat) is quite believable as the increasingly suspicious mum of Dylan, aka: devilboy. She faces a satanic conspiracy of historic, global proportions. Of course, no one believes her, except for those who are already involved in the whole thing. Alice Krige (Ghost Story, Star Trek: First Contact, Sleepwalkers, Habitat) is as coldly beautiful as ever. No one alive comes close to having her seductively wicked charms! My only complaint is that she is under-used!  The rest of the cast is solid, w/ Dylan and the enigmatic Cormac being the standouts. THE CALLING is more than just a simple re-packaging of old material. The story is engaging, suspenseful, and has a fantastic atmosphere of total doom! There are some cool twists and the finalĂ© is a grabber! Yes, this is full screen, but that’s the original aspect ratio. There is a (very demonic) boom-mic visible in the church scene near the end. Though it didn’t ruin the movie for me, I can’t understand how the editors could have possibly missed it! Oh well…
