    Not sure how I feel about this one--it's almost dull and almost inviting.

    Though it offers thrills and chills. Basinger can't get out the kind of "kick-ass girl power" that Jodie Foster and Jullianne Moore did in the part of Clarice Starling, which is exactly what Basinger is trying to be.

    A supernatural soap opera.

    The unintentional effect of movies like Bless the Child is that they are enough to make agnostics out of true believers.
  3. The movie works -- at least marginally.
