I believe they made like 5 sequels to this movie, too. Haven't seen them, but the first one was just amazing. Have you ever noticed that horror movies don't always feel the need to confine themselves to orthodox views of God or the Devil?

You forgot to mention that Lucifer was played by Viggo Mortenson. As I saw The Prophecy on a VHS rental *after* I saw Peter Jackson's Fellowship of the Ring... it was doubly weird. Viggo is very good at being a creepy Lucifer.

(Our hero, Thomas Dagget, first runs into Lucifer as a beautiful, long-haired, bearded man with a certain light around him--you know, like the usual illustrations of White Jesus. So he blinks and asks if he's God.)

Lucifer: God? God is love. I don't love you.

Viggo's delivery was just perfect; to me it was like "Hello, Sauron just walked on stage". Also, Lucifer was sort of the Third Option in the whole mess--the "Game Over" option. Thomas lacked the power to stop Gabriel, but he did have the moral power NOT to fall to Lucifer. I rather liked the resolution, it was elegant and not obvious from the beginning and Lucifer had his place in things.
