Sam will have to stay strong in his faith to save his father and the world.
Imagine if someone decided to take a bible story and turn it into some really cheesy B horror thriller flick. Well that is what The Garden is. There is violent killing with really bad looking blood spraying everywhere, creepy dead people with their mouths sewn shut running around, and horrible lines about the end of the world. For the devil Ben they got Lance Henriksen so that should help even further give you an idea of what kind of movie this is. The problem with this movie is it takes itself too seriously so the bad nature around the movie is just bad not funny. There are some bonus features on this DVD and that surprised me. Commentary by the director, behind the scenes, the trailer, and a still gallery give you a whole bunch of stuff that you will probably never watch because the bad taste left from this overly “Christian” thriller will leave a bad taste in your mouth.
