Dove Review

This is the kind of movie that, after viewing it, you feel as if you need to take a shower. It is really about as low as it gets in the sewer department, and I mean garbage and trash low. This is not even close to family fare and as I looked back at our reviews of the first four films in this series, I realized that the content gets worse and worse with each movie. I sure hope they don’t make any more after this one.

It features everything from a character grabbing kids and heading toward a cliff, saying a “sacrifice to Satan” is the goal, people entering a Christian home where they are singing and have a Bible present, and placing a curse on them in the basement, having them turn psycho and cutting each other up with chain saws and bleeding all over the place. These Christians are referred to as “Weirdoes”. The movie also features sex between unmarried couples, two women kissing and going to bed together, drug use, innuendos, a male that shows his nude rear, a middle aged woman that comes close to doing the same, strong language and…well, let’s just say the hour and a half run time seemed like three hours to me.

Avoid this one like dirt and garbage. Come to think of it, that is a pretty accurate description of this movie.
