“Let me say this right off the bat: Iu0026#39;m not usually a fan of religious films. Although The Seventh Sign has heavy undertones, I canu0026#39;t help but love it for being a really well crafted, atmospheric thriller that letu0026#39;s itu0026#39;s fantastic cast go to some truly tough emotional places, that would still be captivating in a film without religious roots. Demi Moore, who Iu0026#39;ve always loved a lot, plays Abbey Quinn, a tortured girl whose pregnancy only brings forth dark memories from her past and troubles her more. As ominous biblical signs intrude on her benign everyday life, a charismatic, intense stranger (Jurgen Prochnow) rents a room from her, and right away we know he ties into the phenomena somehow. Prochnow rarely gets a chance to play outside of the Soviet terrorist psychopath prototype, but here he brings sincerity, depth and a warm heart to a role that isnu0026#39;t easy to play without lookin like a preachy moron. Michael Biehn give a fiercely touching turn as Abbeyu0026#39;s husband, a realist who finds himself out of his element with the supernatural elements that begin to creep into his life. Biehn has a scene at the end that he just nails, and is a highlight of his career. All religious paraphernalia aside though, the themes presented, about sacrifice, love, and finding the one tiny ray of hope in a world cluttered with scum and degenerates are concepts that can be universally applied to any story, be it Christian or not. Itu0026#39;s a moody, exciting, heartfelt film thatu0026#39;s well worth checking out.”
