THE PROPHECY: FORSAKEN

DVD Review by David Blackwell

DETAILS: 75 minutes, audio commentary

STUDIO: Dimension

RELEASE DATE: 9-6-2005

Kari Wuhrer returns as Allison in possession of a powerful book called the Lexicon which will reveal the name of the Antichrist at a certain time in this sequel to THE PROPHECY: UPRISING. A bad angel named Stark (Tony Todd) controls a hitman (Jason Scott Lee) to kill Allison, but Stark wants the Lexicon. Satan (John Light) sets something in motion that will provide help to Allison later. Allison learns why she was chosen to protect the Lexicon whil the hitman struggles with his humanity.

THE PROPHECY: FORSAKEN isn't as good as THE PROPHECY: UPRSING, but it's plot and the presence of Tony Todd helps make it watchable. The first ten minutes drag and it is easy going after I got through them. The big problem I have with the sequel is that it feels too much like you landed in the middle of a movie despite all the elements coming together and having seen THE PROPHECY: UPRISING. I do wish it was longer than 70 minutes (minus the credits and flashbacks). I don't think we will another sequel, but the ending does set it up for another entry in THE PROPHECY movie if they ever decide to make one.

VIDEO: 1.85:1 (Anamorphic widescreen)

Image detail is good. Colors and shadow values are OK.

AUDIO: English 5.1 Dolby Digital

Subtitles: French, Spanish, English Captions

Sound isn't bad. Then you might be just renting and not worrying too much about how much a workout the 5.1 DD can give.

SPECIAL FEATURES: The only extra is an audio commentary with screenwriter/director Joel Soisson, an executive from Dimension (nick Phillips), Gary J. Tunnicliffe, and editor Kirk Morri. Basically it is full of stories about filming scenes for the sequel (which was filmed back-to-back with THE PROPHECY: UPRISING. Too bad the two movies were shot in six weeks (three weeks per sequel). They mention a scene they cut lots of dialogue from, but I wish they included the unedited version as a deleted scene. They remember a few sets being reworked to be sets for other sequels (DRACULA and HELLRAISER sequels) that a few actors wondered what movie they were doing. Kari ends each take by turning to the camera and asking how people like her butt.

FINAL ANALYSIS: Despite being a short running time, THE PROPHECY: FORSAKEN is a workable follow-up to THE PROPHECY: UPRISING.
