There is a big controversy over Christian horror films. It does seem to be an oxymoron. I am not a big fan of horror at all. The main reason is that I don’t like to be afraid and it seems that if a movie causes you be afraid, then it must be opening a door for the devil and therefore…cannot be Christian. We know that God has nothing to do with fear. He wants us to be at peace at all times.
I was intrigued by the film and wanted to review it as I was curious about what Christian horror is really like. I have to admit that I couldn’t get past the fact that the adults would risk the youth and still go to this house after being told by another Christian about the demon living in that house. Then they proceeded to make light of it and sort of make fun of the biker Christian. That is what I did NOT like. I’m horrified by the fact that anyone would risk the life of another person for any reason, especially children.
Now what I absolutely LOVED was the speech given by the girl who was placed in charge of the rest of the group. I also loved how she stood firm for the purpose she came for…to help someone else.
There were definitely some very scary parts to this film but also some unfinished scenarios that I would have liked to have known more. The ending was a surprise and when the movie was over I was not left in a fearful state so that’s a good thing!
