The Passion of the Christ - This isn’t a horror film in the truest sense of the word. Yet, the crucifixion of Christ is a saga of the supernatural. To some it’s the gospel truth, while to others, it’s myth and superstition. Angels, the devil, death, the son of God and his resurrection are elements of this gory tale. When the movie was originally released, critics said the violence detracted from the message. I don’t think a story about the aftermath of a crucifixion could be portrayed any other way. In order to be reborn, you have to die first.
