Storyline:

Det. John Hobbes is convinced that when killer Edgar Reese is executed, all of his troubles are over. But when people he knows and people on the street start to sing the same tune that Reese sang in the gas chamber, and those same people taunt him, he is told that maybe the cursed fallen angel Azazel is behind it all. Azazel is cursed to roam the Earth without a form, and he can switch bodies by any contact, making him hard to track. When Hobbes is forced to kill a man possessed by Azazel, he must clear his name while protecting his family and others from the evil, vengeful Azazel.

One review

  • If you think Denzel Washington is a good actor (like I do) then “Fallen” is a must see. Washington shines (surprise, surprise) but it is the excellent support from John Goodman and Donald Sutherland which really makes this film cook. I think it’s an intriging and exciting film that sucks you right in and almost makes you scared of the people around you. The casting and dialog make this a movie you will want to own and watch over and over again. The horror is confined to your brain and not shown onscreen. It’s a shame that this film is not known by many. The film has a pretty dark plot all through it and, I will not spoil anything,… a very good twist in the end! Just watch it, because this is a much underrated movie!
