This is a film that didn't seem to get noticed. I saw it quite by accident, and got it based on the cast - Demi Moore, Michael Bhein and Jurgen Procnow. How right I was. The Seventh Sign is moving and exciting. It is a touch predictable, but I didn't mind that. Demi Moore discovers that the child she is carrying will be the first child without a soul. This is the seventh sign fortelling the end of the world, as God has deemed us not worthy. Helping the signs along is the man who becomes Demi and Michael's lodger (played by pocked faced Procnow). There's a great twist in the tale regarding him and a roaming priest - well, I was surprised anyway! It ties together very nicely, and the climax is exciting and very moving. I actually had a tear in my eye, and that doesn't happen very often! The film is great, so there. The DVD itself, though is uninspiring. There's only basic extras (if they can be called that) and the packaging is little more than the video box made into a DVD box. BUT IT'S A GREAT FILM!
Seas boil, heavens fall, and Demi Moore takes a candlelit bath in this effective apocalyptic chiller. The prosthetic-enhanced Moore plays a pregnant non-believer whose baby may hold the key to impending Armageddon. Logic is not exactly the strong point in this well-acted, stylish, theological grab bag, but the random collection of horrific images manages to work more often than not in this acceptable time waster for fans of The Omen and The Exorcist. Also starring Michael Biehn (The Terminator), the always-welcome John Heard in a brief cameo and the exceptional Jürgen Prochnow as a mysterious stranger who could either be from the extreme North or way, way down South. --Andrew Wright
