Overview

Directed by Gregory Hoblit Primal Fear, Fallen is a blend of the police drama and supernatural thriller genres. Homicide detective John Hobbes Denzel Washington narrates, taking the audience back to "the time I almost died." This sets a flashback in motion, beginning at the prison cell of serial killer Edgar Reese Elias Koteas, who grabs Hobbes' hand and sings the Rolling Stones' "Time Is on My Side." After Reese is executed, Hobbes and his partner, Jonesy John Goodman, find a seeming copycat killer, committing murders in a manner not unlike Reese. Hobbes is drawn into the occult after he meets theology professor Gretta Milano Embeth Davidtz, the daughter of a dead police officer. Hobbes becomes a suspect himself, but he continues his search for the truth. Co-producer Dawn Steel died just as this film was due for release.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Robert Firsching
This stylish supernatural thriller comes off as a cross between Seven and Angel Heart in tone, while introducing a new beast to the occult horror pantheon. Azazel is a fallen angel, a discorporeal spirit of evil which passes between living hosts by touch, and can travel to others if its host dies. Detective Denzel Washington sees a man he arrested (Elias Koteas) die in the gas chamber, but Azazel lives on, leading Washington to be blamed for crimes and attacking his family. As Washington realizes the truth about another cop's suicide 30 years before, Azazel gains power and prepares to destroy him. The fine supporting cast includes Donald Sutherland, John Goodman, and Embeth Davidtz (Schindler's List) as the only person who knows what's really happening. Director Gregory Hoblit raises his share of chills, and although the film runs a bit long, it is never less than gripping. An exception to the assumption that big-budget horror films fail, this one is well worth seeing for genre fans.

    I love the beginning. It gives you hope and then you follow the interesting plot line up to that scene. No fancy post production movie effects needed. What was present was simple and executed perfectly. The religious references and the hunt to find out what is effecting the main characters life kept my attention.

    amazing at worst

    I'm a big denzel fan and this is one of my favorites. It follows the life of a police man who is trying to drag down the spirit of a demon. I know it seems like a sort of odd themed film but it is absolutely amazing
