Omen IV: The Awakening
Bloody awful TVM trying to wring a few more cents out of the devil child franchise, only now IT’S A GIRL! Lots of new age stuff too. Not scary or funny.
Good fun and superior to Star Wars in the Saturday morning serial-inspired hogwash space opera stakes – wooden leads, Max von Sydow camping it up, Peter Wyngarde as Klytus, Bond of the Woods, Brian Blessed, kinky secret police, a thoroughly inappropriate Queen soundtrack.
Pointless and badly executed Scientology propaganda with nary a nod to plot logic or continuity. Poor Barry Pepper. (If you absolutely must find out more about this film, check The Groke’s review.)
Lucky Number Slevin
Over-tricksy twist thriller/comedy by the Gangster Number One chap.
