They know who you are. They know where to find you. And if you get in their way, there's nothing between heaven and earth that can save you. Police psychiatrist Cal Jamison (Martin Sheen) is plunged into a demonic nightmare when he finds detective Tom Lopez (Jimmy Smits) next to the body of a ritually sacrificed child. Though Lopez is branded the prime suspect in a string of similar murders, Cal is not convinced of his guilt and begins a relentless search for the truth. Soon Cal's investigation makes him a believer in the supernatural – and the target of a terrifying conspiracy.
Mr Sheen Gives This One Extra Shine
- The Believers review by Spoons
The Believers was one of a handful of films in the 80's that dealt with the occult. But this one and The Serpent And The Rainbow were the only two that really stood out. Martin Sheen puts in a great performance as do the supporting cast and give the movie a real feel of impending dread and doom. While not particularly frightening it does manage to give you the odd chill and definitely entertains. My only complaint is that it is slightly overlong and could have been cut by fifteen minutes or so which would have gave the picture a tighter feel. Recommended.
