Terrible, cliché ridden crap movie. I thought this was going to be a pretty good movie and looked forward to watching. Boy was I wrong. This is a very slow moving, predictable piece of terrible cinema. I wouldn't watch again if my life depended on it. Bad acting, bad storyline and bad script all combine to make one awful experience. A lot of SyFys original movies are pretty good, and this one had potential, however ended up falling flat. This story had been told a hundred different ways in a hundred other much better movies than this one. Do yourself a favor and skip this one. Even reading a dictionary is a better idea than watching this drivel.
Horrible poor cliché of a movie. Terrible imitation of Godsend,The Omen,and Orphan. The acting is bad, although of the three main characters, the mother is the best. The little boy playing the child is contrived, stilted,one of the worst actors and at times comical.He is clearly playing a part. The "writer" does not even know basic grammar-to my mother and I instead of the proper object of the preposition-me. He makes this error throughout the movie's dialogue. I watched while I waited for a phone call so I did see pretty much all the film. Somehow I thought it might get better, but no such luck. Movies today are rarely horror, but too frequently horrible. I love a good fright but not silly nonsense that has no subtlety, artistry, or fear elements. Ominous is what this movie is-a warning to steer clear.
Unexpected coming from the Syfy Channel, but "Ominous" actually manages to be one of the most intense horror films of the year. What could have been another retread of The Omen actually becomes something worth watching, thanks to good direction, a gripping script and solid production values on par with a Blumhouse movie. Things get off to a terrific start with a teaser depicting an untraditional exorcism and then quickly turn tragic with a heartbreaking few scenes where a couple lose their young son. However, apparently not having read any Stephen King books, they proceed to make a deal to get their son back. With the death of not one but two cuddly animals, you know this isn't going to be your ordinary TV movie, and sure enough, it delivers. Once the friendly neighborhood priest catches fire, daddy starts investigating his son's unusual behavior and finds out that someone's pulled a Rosemary's Baby on him. Things get even creepier when the dad realizes he's got to kill his demonic kid and tries to blow him up. The camera work is good and the movie looks suitably creepy. The performances are well above the usual Syfy standards with several standouts including Game of Thrones' Essie Bianco and Mark Chapman as the devil's creepy helper. Some of the cgi shots aren't great but there's a lot of great make up, especially when the kid finally transforms into Satan. This is a stand out film and definitely worth a look.
I have to admit I don't normally watch Sci-Fi Channel movies, but my husband insisted we watch this one. I was ready to bolt, but surprisingly... not only did it hold my interest, but I thought it was one of the better horror movies of recent memory. Yes... I'm a horror fan. Much like INSIDIOUS or THE CONJURING, this is a horror story rooted in the relationship of two adults facing a very difficult turning point in their lives. Husband Michael (Barry Watson) has been unfaithful to his devoted wife Rachel (Esme Bianco) and he's started drinking. Then... they lose their son in a car accident. When they get their son back in a miraculous turn of events... each of them have their faith tested in different ways. The marriage they'd struggled to save starts to fracture again and in the middle of it all is a son who may be their sweet little angel... or something far more ominous. Not content to be a simple haunted house film... the movie goes beyond the confines of its story and strives for something bigger. There are elements of HIGHLANDER in the subplot about a renegade priest dueling (literally) with a seemingly immortal foe. There's a big action sequence out of THE BIRDS where the demonic child takes on an entire SWAT team. And the film's one mistake... a SHARKNADO like park scene that feels out of place in this otherwise creepy and satisfying movie. It's also very gory. Ironically of all the PG-13 horror movies lately... a TV movie is the one that delivers the R-rated goods. While the plot is most reminiscent of THE OMEN and PET SEMETARY, the filmmakers have clearly taken influence from the James Wan play book. In fact, I would argue that this film is more successful at capturing Wan's trademark creepy atmosphere and tone than his own spin off ANNABELLE. Sci-Fi paired this film with the INSIDIOUS films and its easy to see why. If they decide to make INSIDIOUS 4... maybe give these people a call. Final verdict... terrifically atmospheric, strong acting, so-so low budget CG, way above average Sci-Fi channel movie.
Ding ding ding! We have a winner! A 2 stars movie! Can you imagine that? Well, lucky for you, you don't have to, you just need to watch Ominous! Worse special effects I've seen the past 5 years, truly bad, possibly made in Paint, quite a viable explanation. The plot is overused, the acting B movie all the way, the camera is nothing special, and making a full circle, returning to the CGI, cause if there is no room for horror, there sure is for laughter! If you see this with friends you will laugh and have a blast. I guarantee it!! All joke aside, I mean, Ominous aside, this is a movie you simply must not touch. Consider it being the haunted tape from The Ring. The effect might be similar. Stay away. Go somewhere else. Warn others. Cheers!
