CHUCK RUSSELL

Kim Basinger gives a strong performance in the lead role but her abilities can’t save this lame story from its mundane nature. Riding on the wave of spiritual thrillers that dominated screens at the time, the story centers around a little girl who is supposed to have special Godlike powers, prompting Satanists to want to take her and do their own nasty things with her. What the girl actually has power to do is never disclosed aside from the occasional glimpse of her making dinner plates spin. Somehow,  pops up in an inexplicable cameo that goes nowhere. Really bad, but Basinger’s beauty and talent might make you forget everything else for two hours.
