This is a great film. I got the opportunity to see it on the big screen and also bought a copy when it first came out. The film looks fantastic and has an incredible cast. There is a good amount of scripture, a CLEAR biblical worldview and a final message about the power of prayer. This 2 for $20 deal is fantastic! I would recommend it and am buying several copies!
Those interested in supernatural thrillers will enjoy THE LIST; however, those seeking a Christian film promising hopes of redemption for loved ones through its viewing will be sorrowfully disappointed. While the acting is quite good and the storyline somewhat compelling, it lacks in evidencing that deliverance and redemption are through Christ alone. Although there is prayer included in its dialogue, the occult is promoted more heavily. Good wins over evil, yes; one can find that on ABC family. This does not a Christian film make.
I thought the movie was well done: good acting and filming; however, I thought the story (at least in this movie version) was anticlimactic. The conflict builds as the tension and spiritual warfare mount, then with the drawing of a cross on a window and an angry declaration, the conflict is over and everyone lives happily ever after. I had more lofty imaginations that included the demise of the cult and a more resounding, spiritually-powerful victory that focused on personal redemption and the blood of Christ overcoming the blood covenant of this cult. In summary, it was interesting, but disappointing. There are much better, more satisfying Christian films out there.
