REVIEWS

Review by Dante M. Quinn (posted on 28-Dec-2009)

The movie "The Believers" was definitely an excersize in psychological horror . The part played by Martin Sheen as the Police Psychologist, tortured by the death of his wife and trying to save his son from the grips of part of a satanic worship cult ,leaves you in suspense from beginning to end. I have to say, there are lots of similarities to "Rosemary's Baby"or "The Omen" along those lines. Of course always a headliner is the part of the Police Luitenant " Taggert" Played by Robert Loggia who is in hot pursuit ,following all leads to find out "Who" or "What" forces of evil are behind the rash of self inflicted Homicides going on in the bowels of the city. All in all for a 1987 flick, The Story (plot) Acting, and Photography, all made for a very intense Drama, that even made me a "Believer"
