The Seventh Sign is an apocalyptic drama propelled by performances from Demi Moore and character actor, Jurgen Prochnow and is all around fairly entertaining even if these type of films aren’t exactly my thing.

Although there is a coherent story for LOL, for whatever reason, while watching, something felt “off”.
