Bless The Child

Bless The Child Omens and concepts of goods vs. evil have no place in Maggie O'Connor's (Kim Basinger) well-ordered, practical universe. That is until her wayward sister Jenna (Angela Bettis), shows up at her doorstep one rainy Christmas Eve and saddles her with an autistic niece.

Cody (Holliston Coleman) quickly becomes the daughter Maggie has always longed for, but six years later Jenna suddenly re-enters her life and, with her mysterious new husband, Eric Stark (Rufus Sewell), abducts Cody. Despite the fact that Maggie has no legal rights to Cody, FBI agent John Travis (Jimmy Smits), an expert in ritual homicide and occult-related crime, takes up her cause when he realises that Cody shares the same birth date as several other recently missing children.

The little girl, it soon becomes clear, is more than simply ''special''. She manifests extraordinary powers that the forces of evil have waited centuries to control.
