Editorial Reviews

With a hot cast of young stars—Jason Scott Lee (Balls of Fury), Kari Wuhrer (Eight Legged Freaks) and Jason London (Out Cold)&mdash:The Prophecy: Forsaken is the newest electrifying feature in the classic horror saga.

As an ancient religious text—the Lexicon—continues to write itself and reveal eternal mysteries of the universe, it is now believed to contain the exact time when the Antichrist will arrive. With control of the Lexicon and its enormous power at stake, a group of fallen angels will stop at nothing to capture it and the young woman (Wuhrer) who possesses it.

Let me start by saying that this review will be a little different from my previous ones. This is because that this movie that I'm reviewing, "The Prophecy 5: Forsaken", doesn't need much set up. When this movie was made it was at the exact same time as its predecessor "The Prophecy 4: Uprising". So, basically all the things I said that led up to the story details of the fourth film, are pretty much the same for this fifth installment in this entertaining religious/sci-fi saga.

Continuing directly from the fourth film, "The Prophecy 5: Forsaken" finds Allison (Kari Wuhrer) still protecting `The Lexicon', an ancient religious text that continues to write the events of the future that will soon become reality, from those angels that would like to possess the book in order to prevent something evil from occurring. It becomes apparent that the reason the angels are trying so hard to kill Allison is because the Lexicon will soon reveal the identity of the person who is to become the Antichrist. If the dark angels discover the identity of the Antichrist and kill him, then they can conceivably prevent Armageddon from coming to pass, the problem is God has already planned for Armageddon according to the Bible, so by killing the Antichrist these dark angels are turning their backs on God. One angel in particular, named Stark (Tony Todd), is leading the other dark angels to find Allison. The problem is angels can't kill a normal human being without God's consent, so to do their dirty work they've hired a hitman (Jason Scott Lee) with the proviso that if he completes this mission he will be spared an eternity in Hell.

The idea of angels being jealous of soul-possessing human beings goes back a long way, all the way back to Lucifer's fall from heaven, and the Prophecy series has explored this theme like no other series before it. The world of these films is one of extreme moral ambiguity, in which angels and devils defy their stereotypes in such a way that, here in Prophecy: Forsaken, the protagonist, God's chosen servant to protect an ancient book of immeasurable knowledge, seeks help from Satan against a horde of God's "holy" angels. Those angels, led by Stark (Tony "Candyman" Todd) are working desperately to stop Armageddon, and the knowledge they seek is the AntiChrist's name.

Allison (Kari Wuhrer) was chosen to safeguard the knowledge the angels seek, and that puts her in a lot of danger. Her only ally is the man charged with killing her (the angels can't afford to get their own hands dirty for fear of what their Father - who, by the way, is completely absent from all of these films and really needs to come back and get his heavenly house in order - would surely do to them) - which makes Dylan (Jason Scott Lee) less than dependable in any given situation. Satan (John Light) is essentially the voice of reason and logic in this film; while he has his own agenda, he's also a pretty good source of information on angelic politics. The big question is why Stark, among the most high-ranking of angels, wants to keep Armageddon from happening - well, it's not that hard of a question, but it surely takes Allison a good while to figure it out.

Prophecy: Forsaken is a good movie that stands pretty well on its own two feet, but there's just nothing special about it - nothing that makes it stand out or takes it anywhere close to "must see" territory.

This series is unique among Hollywood religious horror films in that it's unflinching in its portrayal of the various factions in the angelic war as being nothing more than a collection of self-interested partisans pursuing their own selfish interests. Don't be put off by the straight-to-video status of this film, it's actually much better than the second and third installments of this series. This film is relatively short, but tense and tightly written. The Budapest setting lends the film a dreamlike and gloomy atmosphere, and the trim plot focuses on four major characters and their conflict over a book which reveals the identity of the coming Antichrist. Kari Wuhrer is serviceable in her role as the guardian of the book, and Jason Scott Lee plays his role as a human assassin for a Seraph angel with a suitable degree of self-loathing and inner conflict. The direction is lean and edgy, and the cinematography is outstanding, particularly for a low-budget film such as this. This is a very nice surprise and definitely worth adding to your Prophecy collection, or any collection of religious-themed horror/thrillers.

I had mixed feelings about these further Prophecy sequels when I first heard about them. I was a big fan of the first three movies and of Walken's Gabriel. The original trilogy seemed like it would be a hard act to follow, but I'm very happy to say that Prophecy 4 & 5 are surprisingly good sequels. Prophecy fans should give 'em a shot.

This is a standalone, two part addition to The Prophecy series.
It doesn't have Christopher Walken in it, but it is very good.

The Prophecy:Uprising is the first half, and
The Prophecy:Forsaken is the ending.

I like the first three Prophecy movies a lot, mainly 1 & 3, but in some ways these last two are even better.
They are set in Bucharest, Romania and star Kari Wuhrer. She has really improved as an actress.

You can watch these last two movies even if you haven't seen the first three, and you will still enjoy them.
I highly recommend them.
