Dove Review

This is a story about spiritural warfare and good vs. evil. In this movie, the evil takes the shape of a “spirit guide”, a woman who practices the occult and intends to take possession of another woman’s baby as she has not been able to have one of her own. We see demons fight angels in this film and the special effects are very impressive.

The woman carrying the child has an artist husband named Jason. He sees things in the spirit realm and his wife, Jessica, is concerned he is losing his mind, especially when she learns Jason’s father committed suicide. However, Jason realizes later on that it is a spiritual contest and the stakes include his home and his child.

While there is a lot of fighting between angels and demons, the martial arts style is much less graphic than commonly seen on television these days. Their are some scary images in the film but these are integral parts of the story. The viewer should be aware that the filmmakers do show some very detailed (fictional) occultic practices. It is for this reason that we are awarding this well made film our Dove “Faith-Based” Seal with a caution for the Occult.
