| A solid and quite effective TV horror film
Child of Darkness, Child of Light is a TV horror movie that doesn't appear to have a very good reputation. I cannot go along with the negativity though, as I think this is a pretty decent effort overall. It is a religious themed horror movie that focuses on that old staple of the genre – the birth of the Antichrist. Except there is a twist here in that there are not one but two virgin births, both of which have been prophesied to spawn not only the Antichrist but the Christ as well. A priest is sent by the Vatican to try and determine which is which.

It's pretty obviously a television production in fairness, with obvious restrictions in place regarding the content. But equally, the TV production values ensure that it's professionally made and solid on the whole. The storyline is well enough handled, with decent pacing. There are also some well-staged scenes and surprises along the way. The cast has a few familiar faces such as Brad 'Midnight Express' Davis as a doctor, not long before his untimely death and a blink-and-you'll-miss him appearance by future star Brendan Fraser. All-in-all, this is more than decent for a TV horror film; if you go into it with realistic expectations it should entertain you.
