Overview

Stigmata is a supernatural suspense story about good, evil, and faith. Frankie Paige (Patricia Arquette) is a hair stylist in her mid-20s who has no strong religious convictions until odd things start happening to her after she's given a rosary by her mother: she begins speaking with another person's voice; unknown and unseen forces start to attack her; and she develops stigmata, bleeding wounds that spontaneously appear on her wrists, feet, and side, as Christ was wounded at Calvary. Some people believe that a holy miracle has been visited on Frankie, though no one can say why. A Cardinal from the Vatican (Jonathan Pryce) sends a priest, Father Andrew Kiernan (Gabriel Byrne), to investigate Frankie and her condition; after getting a first-hand look, Father Andrew finds himself less concerned with whether Frankie's wounds are a legitimate miracle and more concerned with saving her life. Billy Corgan, leader of the rock group The Smashing Pumpkins, composed the score for Stigmata in collaboration with keyboardist Mike Garson.

This movie is well shot. Plenty of foreshadowing helps make this a very enjoyable film to watch. Stigmata is a supernatural suspense story about good, evil, and faith. Frankie Paige played by Patricia Arquette is a hair stylist who has no strong religious convictions until odd things start happening to her after she's given a rosary by her mother: she begins speaking with another person's voice; unknown and unseen forces start to attack her; and she develops stigmata. Some people believe that a holy miracle has been visited on Frankie, though no one can say why. A Cardinal from the Vatican played by Jonathan Pryce sends a priest, Father Andrew Kiernan enjoyably portrayed by Gabriel Byrne, to investigate Frankie and her condition; after getting a first-hand look, Father Andrew finds himself less concerned with whether Frankie's wounds are a legitimate miracle and more concerned with saving her life. The many katas of Matsubayashi Ryu are performed at full power, as well as Kobudo katas: Kyan no Sai, Shirato no Kon and others.... The unique Ippon Kumite, conditioning excercises and breaking techniques complete this video. A must have. Sound track to tape sounds like Yanni to me.

I didn't know how good this movie would be when renting it, but I was amazed after watching it how good it really was. There are some very disturbing scenes, which had me watching this movie over and over.

This one of my favorite demon/devil possession movies. Patricia arguet is great in it and it's pretty freaky.

Stigmata is simply a masterpiece in its own, unusual, right. It takes - rather, immerses -the movie-watcher into a world engulfed with supernatural phenomena. But there is a valid plot involved; the ''Gospel of Thomas,'' a gnostic work, serves as the means of the plot and the cause of the stigmata. The film brilliantly portrays the obvious theme of good vs. evil as well as stirs one to question his or her own faith.

What intrigues me about this movie is it keeps you entertained from the beginning to the end. You ask yourself; how does a woman who lives a sinful life have the privilege to have the rare stigmata. My favorite quote of this movie comes at the end. Words from Jesus himself; "The church of God is inside of you." A piece of truth the catholic church has been trying to hide from us for centuries! The premise of the movie is what leaves you mesmerized. I like this movie because it shows how segregating religion and taking out the IMPORTANT parts of the bible was one of man's biggest mistakes. The theory of this woman's possession is to help the audience understand the message. The message is not to harm or kill...it is to tell the truth of Jesus' teaching. Hidden scrolls that are lost forever. Or are they?
