  • The Omen meets Superman in this small-town coming-of-age tale of a boy who falls from the sky. Ominous changes set in when the adopted Brandon turns 12
  • Sadly, bar a few gnarly death sequences, there is nothing scary about this film. Unconvincing and lacking dynamism, its ending is deeply underwhelming
