Editorial Reviews

Another chapter in the wildly popular Prophecy series, The Prophecy: Uprising is a spine-tingling supernatural thriller starring Kari Wuhrer (Eight Legged Freaks) and Jason London (Out Cold).

Not all prophecies have already been written. The Lexicon is an ancient religious manuscript that continues to write itself and reveal the mysteries of the future. When it lands in the hands of an unsuspecting young woman, she is suddenly thrust into the center of an epic battle between ruthless fallen angels who will move heaven and hell to learn the secrets contained in the Lexicon.

First off, this direct to DVD release of the Prophecy line does not have Christopher Walken starring, so it is like eating a Rum cake without the Rum. It might taste ok but is not Rum cake! Anyway, this is a stand alone film, as very little is referenced from the previous releases. The movie concerns the finding and protecting an ancient manuscript, called the Lexicon which basically writes itself as God completes the Book of Revelations. What God writes, will determine the fate of Angels and Mankind, so ownership of the Lexicon will give an advantage to the holder. Angels and Demons vie to own the Lexicon, but it is up to a lone woman, well played by Kari Wuhrer, to protect it. The movie is fast paced which forces the incredulous to become believers rather quickly and some important plot points are glossed over. Sean Pertwee is excellent in the role of the Rumanian detective who has his own personal demons to overcome. He has the look of Russell Crowe and the angst of Stellan Skarsgård, a good combination for this film. So, it is not a bad movie, as there are a few moments of suspense and humor to make it worthwhile, but just do not go into it with the expectations generated from the original trilogy. Recommended with reservations.

Being a big fan of a lot of the horror movies that Dimension Homevideo has released over the last few years, I decided to rent this movie. Not expecting that much, but I was impressed by the overall quality of this movie. The special effects were good, the actors were great, and the story line keep you interested in what was going to happen next. There are some really good sudden scares that catch you off guard and surprise you.

The story might be a little confusing to people who are not familiar to the Prophecy movies. A lot issues dealing with heaven and hell, Angels and Demons, and the Devil. I myself haven't seen any of the older Prophecy movies that star Christopher Walken, so I can't compare this movie to the other Prophecy movies.

A standout in this movie is the acting of Doug Bradly towards the end of the movie. For Hellraiser fans like me it's a total treat to see Doug Bradly(Pinhead from Hellraiser films) do some great acting outside the character of Pinhead.

If you like watching horror movies that aren't just teenage slasher films and you are looking for something different and dark, definitely give this movie a go.

During the mid-nineties, Dimension Films produced a small, yet entertaining franchise of films based on a supposed 23rd chapter in the book of Revelation, this series was known as `The Prophecy'. Focusing on a second war in Heaven, this one being waged by those angels that had once been loyal to God during Satan's revolt, but after seeing the evil humanity is capable of exacting on itself, and wondering why the Creator would bother to shower His love and grace on a creation that is completely ungrateful, some of the loyal angels have questioned their allegiances. With the battle lines clearly drawn the angels take sides against each other waging a war that closed off access to Heaven by all of humanity. In 2000, Dimension released "The Prophecy 3: The Ascent", which at the time of its release was to be the 3rd and final chapter in `The Prophecy' saga. With humanity being allowed access into Heaven after a final battle between the hero of the good angels and the leader of the evil angels, the good side won and the gates were once again opened. In 2005, Dimension chose to return to this franchise and see if they could expand upon the story that was started in the initial trilogy. This seemed a daunting task, especially since the original trilogy starring Christopher Walken was for starters, just so interesting and entertaining, and secondly the storyline was completed. However, the powers-that-be within Dimension Films felt strongly enough in their franchise and released "The Prophecy 4: Uprising".Read more ›

I'm Catholic and have been called many things cause of my beliefs.They are different, unusual, unoradoxed, and unexplained. I have every prophecy movies and half of every movie to do with exorcisms which are only either based on true story's or true events, even the ones about what the Catholic Church themselves have been refusing to tell all these years.

Very little special effects and that's what made the movie that much more interesting. The acting was good and the suspense and plot was enough to keep me guessing. In all, the movie was better than I expected. Ending was a surprise but in keeping with the Phrophecy series. I look forward to the next one(hopefully)

Here's an annoying little thing that you'll have to do, before watching this movie, and that is to put on the, "English Captions", as there are several scenes with Romanian dialog (which I at first mistook for being benign, since there was no automatic English subtitling, but upon further viewing, noticed that too much Romanian dialog was being used, for it to just be for effect)

But here's the rub, there's no option to only have the Romanian dialog subtitled, so you're forced to watch the whole movie with the English subtitles, as there's only one English subtitling option on the subtitling menu :(

If anyone else has discerned a way to watch this movie with only the Romanian language subtitled, I'd be glad to hear from them, but I'm afraid that it looks like, there isn't :(
