A new chapter of evil Father Lankester Merrin thinks that he has glimpsed the face of Evil. In the years following World War II, Merrin (Stellan Skarsgård) is relentlessly haunted by memories of the unspeakable brutality perpetrated against the innocent people of his parish. In the wake of all he has seen, both his faith in his fellow man and the Almighty have deserted him. He can no longer honestly call himself a man of God. Merrin has traveled far from his native Holland in a desperate attempt to escape the horrors that he witnessed there. While drifting through Cairo, he is approached by a collector of rare antiquities to join a British archeological excavation in the remote Turkana region of Kenya. They have unearthed a Christian Byzantine church in inexplicably pristine condition – as if it had been buried on the day it was completed. The collector wants Merrin, an Oxford-educated archeologist, to find an ancient relic hidden within the church before the British discover it. But beneath the church, something much older sleeps, waiting to be awoken. Madness descends upon the local villagers and the contingent of British soldiers sent to guard the excavation. Merrin watches helplessly as the atrocities of war are repeated against another innocent village – atrocities he had prayed never to see again. The blood of innocents flows freely on the East African plain, and the horror has only just begun. In the place where Evil was born, Merrin will finally see its true face.

Sean, DURBAN. 26 May 2005

After various casting changes, problems on set, budget issues and two director's, this is what they came up with. Only yesterday I saw the other version of the same movie (different director) being advertised and also to be released on cinemas. They figured well this one did not make so much money anyway, might as well show the first version the studio was not happy with, and make some cash back...if any.

This movie starts of where father Merin is still young, just after the second WW, he's lost his faith because of the war and gets invited to a dig where they have discovered a church on top of Lucifer's spot. To make a long story short, bad things start happening to the locals and this is where the movie kicks off, or eh, is suppose to.
After a solid opening which promised much, I was let down over the next 50/60 minutes. The story never really progressed as it was just one gory death after another. Just as I thought alright things are getting interesting, nothing happens. The end was not too bad, but I guess this movie could have been much better had they not used the 'boo scare' factor so much (like in teen slashers). The cgi animals were really bad.
There was still a couple of things I liked about the movie though. Stellan Skarsgard played a good role of father Merin imo and the rest of the cast was not too bad either. Some nice gore here and there, the score written by Graeme Revell and just the overall setting of the film.

It's sad that the film had so many problems but I think it's mainly to blame on the studios as the first director was fired 2/3 into the movie, and another was hired to finish it off. Bad times for some good directors. It'll be interesting to see who's gonna have this turd on his resume
