A wishy washy horror take on the stigmata.
Being raised Christian, obviously a movie about a person having stigmata wounds is appealing. Turning it into a horror, I thought, would be more interesting – yes and no.
The backdrop of a rain soaked Pittsburgh was perfect. Water plays a significant part in the film - Frankie's first stigmata attack happens as she is in the bathtub.
The soundtrack and special effects are quite impressive and make an uneven story seem tense and frightening. Particularly the scenes as Frankie is being attacked by unseen force. The jumbling and messy soundtrack that accompanies is perfect.
How is your faith these days, Father?
In 1999, Gabriel Byrne, who played a priest in Stigmata, would play Satan in another religious based movie End of Days.
