Bless the Child

This I rented expecting a schlocky bit of gothic horror, and wasn’t disappointed. While Kim Basinger is usually weak, everyone flailed in this formula story. Even Rufus wasn’t particularly convincing as a Minion of Evil. The only thing that could have made this film a little more interesting is if they’d gone further into formula, and developed a romance between Basinger and Smits (the cop who left seminary school–where have we heard that before?). Passable if there’s nothing else to rent? Sure, but The Prophecy it ain’t.
