Angels and demons movies are a guilty pleasure of mine, so if you’ve been craving a mega movie marathon, then you’ve come to the right place. This is my mega list of favorites. Movies are listed based on my personal love-hate relationship with them, but I recommend seeing all of them. If your favorite movie, TV show, or cartoon doesn’t make the list, chances are I haven’t seen it or just don’t remember it.

Important: Most of these movies are available on Amazon. With a 30 day free Prime trial, you’ll get access to many of these movies and more. Click here to check out Amazon Prime.

  1. The Prophecy (Christopher Walken)Angels and Demons Movies - The ProphecyThis is the movie that started my obsession with angel movies. Christopher Walken plays a perfect evil version of Gabriel. There’s something about angels in trench coats that moves them from the false images of flying babies, to powerful beings that look like men and fight to the death. (click here to watch this movie)
  2. The Prophecy 2 (Christopher Walken)Angels and Demons Movies - The Prophecy 2 After the success of the original movie, the only thing to do would be to make a sequel. In my opinion, this is one of the best sequels ever made. This movie was so interesting, that it even helps movie #3 make the list. Must be that Walken magic that makes these movies among my favorites of all time, as far as angels and demons are concerned. (click here to watch this movie)
  3. Fallen (Denzel Washington & John Goodman)Angels and Demons Movies - Fallen Denzel Washington This is one of my favorite Denzel movies, and I watch it any time it comes on TV. This starts out like your average Denzel good guy cop movie. Washington plays a detective that finally captures a serial killer he’s been obsessed with… or so he thinks. John Goodman plays what may be one of his most interesting supporting roles ever. After watching this, I’ll never be able to forget the song “Time Is On My Side”. It’s cerebral, creepy, disturbing, and I can guarantee that you won’t see the ending coming. (click here to watch this movie)
  4. Supernatural (Jensen Ackles & Jared Padalecki) Angels and Demons Movies - SupernaturalNot a movie, but more like 12 seasons of awesome, as far as angels and demons on film are concerned. It all starts with a yellow eyed demon killing their mother (not a spoiler). As the series progresses, the duo encounters angels, demons, Lilith, the four horsemen of the apocalypse, death, grim reapers, Gabriel, Michael, Lucifer, and even God himself. This series does not disappoint at all. It’s a perfect mix of action, comedy, magic, mythology, and more. The only bad thing I have to say about this series is that it’s no longer being streamed by Hulu. (click here to watch this series)
  5. The Devil’s Advocate (Keanu Reeves & Al Pacino) Angels and Demons Movies - Devil's AdvocateThis movie starts out innocently enough, and then becomes really dark really fast. It’s hard to describe this movie without giving away anything, so I’ll just say this… Imagine Neo as a lawyer and Al Pacino as Morpheus. (click here to watch this movie)

  6. The Good Place (Ted Danson & Kristen Bell) This TV show grew on me with the very first episode. It revolves around people in heaven (the Good Place), but things quickly make a turn for the worse when Elanor, who should be in hell (The Bad Place), is accidentally allowed to enter The Good Place. It’s funny, and borderline family friendly. The Good Place automatically replaces curse words with other words, so it has adult humor, but is safe for most kids. The word “fork” is used a lot. I’ll let you figure out which word it replaces. (click here to watch this series)
  7. Gabriel (Andy Whitfield) This movie caught me completely by surprise. It feels like a cross between The Prophecy and Legion. I love the the angels look like normal human beings, and they also use guns. Overall, there’s a lot of originality in this one. (click here to watch this movie)
  8. City of Angels (Nicholas Cage & Meg Ryan) There’s some good old fashioned Genesis 6 action in this movie about angels, fallen angels, love, and human on angel sex. The ending is worth watching the entire movie for. (click here to watch this movie)
  9. Spawn (Michael Jai White & John Leguizamo) Not only is Spawn one of my favorite anti-heroes, but it makes it on the list as one of my favorite demon movies… and about 90% is because I loved the comic book. Spawn is recruited by the Devil, given a bunch of cool powers and immortality. He then uses said powers and immortality to be a pain in the Devil’s butt. The downside is that Spawn is basically homeless, lives in an alley with crack heads, and will end up in hell anyway, regardless of what he does. That wasn’t a movie spoiler. He’s called Spawn, which is short for Hell Spawn, because the only way you become one is by going to hell in the first place, for being a terrible person in life (the comic book plot). They really need to reboot this movie and upgrade the special effects. (click here to watch this movie)
  10. Lucifer (Tom Ellis) Angels and Demons Movies - Lucifer TV ShowStill running on Fox, this show is pretty interesting. It reveloves around Lucifer’s choice to leave hell, defy God, and hang out with an attractive female detective. Seems to capitalize on our love for a cop with an out of the ordinary sidekick (Castle, The Mentalist, etc.). While entertaining, it does go out of it’s way to drum up sympathy for the Devil, while making God out to be a bad parent and husband. That’s side story stuff, but overall, not a bad show. (click here to watch this series)
  11. Wishmaster (Tammy Lauren) This was the first movie I saw about the Djinn. The Djinn are evil fire spirits in Islam, akin to demons. Without getting technical about it, the Djinn in the movie are evil and want to unleash hell on earth. Like the Americanized genie, the Djinn in the movie grants wishes, but they never turn out good. This is a fun movie to watch on a throwback movie night. (click here to watch this movie)
  12. Demon Knight (Jada Pinket-Smith) This was a Tales From The Crypt movie, back when Tales From The Crypt was huge. Imagine being stuck in a hotel with Jada Pinket-Smith all night while being stalked by lots and lots of demons. It’s a gore fest, so make sure you put the kids to sleep before watching this one. (click here to watch this movie)
  13. Fallen (Paul Wesley) This is just a story about an average high school kid that happens to be a nephilim, and the angels are out to kill him. I’m not sure how this made it to ABC family, but it’s pretty good. I wasn’t much of a fan of the movie spin off, but the TV series is entertaining. (click here to watch this series)
  14. The Prophecy 3 (Christopher Walken) This one wasn’t as well written as the first two, and the one reason it makes the list is because of #2. I had to see what was to become of the Nephilim child after he’d grown up. Christopher Walken adds some saving grace to it as he reprises the role of Gabriel one last time. You kinda have to watch this movie if you want the closure that you don’t get from #2. (click here to watch this movie)
  15. Constantine (Keanu Reeves) There are a lot of things I liked about this movie, such as Constantine being an extremely flawed hero, his trip through hell, and the final battle. What I didn’t like was the androgynous angel Gabriel or the fact that we probably won’t be getting a sequel any time soon… if at all. (click here to watch this movie)

  16. The Exorcism of Emily Rose (Laura Linney) This movie actually kept me up at night for quite a while. For at least a year I’d get nervous at 3:00 am but I won’t spoil any of the movie for you. I also heard a rumor that some of the audio is from the actual exorcism. You’ll probably want to pray before, during, and for days after this one. (click here to watch this movie)
  17. The Exorcist (Ellen Burstyn) My mom thought this movie was much scarier than I did, but it was scary in her generation. For me it was Emily Rose. However, this movie is scary, especially when you consider that it all started with a Ouija Board… and tens of thousands of kids probably have them in their bedrooms right now. (click here to watch this movie)
  18. Angel Wars (Justin Moran) Both a series and a series of movies, Angel Wars is pretty interesting because of it’s originality. The angels have spaceships and various other technologies that allow them to fight demons. My only complaint in the entire series is when Arba, a nephilim, is used to explain the existence of dinosaur bones. It was just painful to watch and hear. Other than that, I liked it. (click here to watch this movie)
  19. Highway To Heaven (Michael Landon) This is an older TV show I use to love as a kid. Michael Landon plays a wandering angel that helps people in his path, in order to get his wings back. He can also transform into a werewolf… kinda. Inspite of how cheesy it sounds, it’s not a bad show. It lasted five seasons before Landon’s death brought an end to the show. (click here to watch this series)
  20. Ghost Rider (Nicholas Cage & Eva Mendez) I know a lot a people hated this movie, but I didn’t. I thought it was entertaining and cheesy for such a powerful and serious hero. I can’t prove it, but I think Ghost Rider might have been the inspiration for Spawn. The story lines are somewhat similar. (click here to watch this movie)
  21. Hellboy (Ron Perlman) This movie was surprisingly good. I’d never read the comics, so I didn’t have any expectations going in, but it was worth the watch. The Nazis succeed in opening a portal to hell and Hell Boy is what comes through. (click here to watch this movie)
  22. Hellboy 2 (Ron Perlman) After being surprised by the first, I figured I’d give this one a shot. It wasn’t bad, but not as good as the first. The elves were a pretty nice and unexpected touch. (click here to watch this movie)
  23. I, Frankenstein Sometimes I feel like I shouldn’t like certain movies, but end up liking them anyway. This movie was fun and action packed. The story line about demons wanting to know how to come back to life, even though they are immortal and possess human bodies, makes no sense. I was also confused as to whether the gargoyles were actual angels or just angel like spirits. If you completely ignore the story line, you’ll love the movie. (click here to watch this movie)
  24. Wishmaster 2 (Holly Fields) After the first movie, you have to see how the Djinn gets out of the crystal. I actually think this one might be a tad better than the first, but only by a little. It still has the old school horror movie feel, but with an actual story line that makes sense. Grant more wishes, open a portal, free more Djinn. (click here to watch this movie)
  25. The Ninth Gate (Johnny Depp) This is a weird film, that just so happens to be on HBO as I’m writing this. I’ve seen this movie several times and it’s still strange. There’s a lot of silence and some slow moments, but overall a solid, yet strange Johnny movie. All of his movies are somewhat strange, but this one is out there. He spends the bulk of the movie chasing down books written by the devil, which when combined opens a portal to hell. I won’t ruin the surprise, but I will say that this is absolutely not family friendly. (click here to watch this movie)

  26. This Is The End (Jonah Hill & Seth Rogan) Overall it was a funny movie, but is full of the usual anti-Christian humor that consistently accompanies Seth Rogan and Jonah Hill movies. If you can get past that you’ll enjoy the movie. (click here to watch this movie)
  27. Dogma (Matt Damon & Ben Aflec) This is a movie about heaven and hell, angels and demons, and it is full of comedians. The entire movie is just shenanigans on top of shenanigans poking fun at the Catholic Church specifically, and Christianity in general. It’s definitely not family friendly. (click here to watch this movie)
  28. Legion (Paul Bettany & Dennis Quaid) I was excited to see this movie and managed to make it to the theater on it’s release date. The costumes were great, the fight scenes were good, but the plot was lacking. Even though it didn’t do great in the box office, they still decided to do a TV series spinoff (Dominion). It’s worth watching once, but I haven’t been able to sit through it a second time. (click here to watch this movie)
  29. Jeepers Creepers (Gina Philips) Don’t ask. Just accept the fact that it’s on my list. This movie is about a demon that returns every however many years to kill people, collect body parts, and do demon stuff. It reminds me of a SyFy original movie, but with a bigger budget. Definitely a cult classic. (click here to watch this movie)
  30. Pumpkin Head (Lance Henriksen) I’m a sucker for low budge movies that make their way to the SyFy channel, and that’s exactly where I saw this series. Pumpkin head is the spirit of demon like child that returns over and over again, after being killed over and over again. If you’re a fan of “cult movies”, then you’ll probably enjoy this one. (click here to watch this movie)
  31. Pumpkin Head 2 (Andrew Robinson) If you like the first movie, then you have to watch the second movie because it’s exactly the same as the first. It reminds me of Friday The 13th. You know you’re gonna get the same movie every time. (click here to watch this movie)
  32. Pumpkin Head 3 (Doug Bradley) This was the last of the good Pumpkin Head movies. I thought for sure there would be more good ones coming after this, but they fell into that “reboot” frenzy… which leads us to the next movie on the list. (click here to watch this movie)
  33. Angels In The Outfield (Danny Glover &  Tony Danza) I was a lot younger when I saw this one, and thought the idea that the angels would actually show up, was a pretty cool concept. It’s family friendly, and if you’re looking to have a relaxing night, this movie will do the trick. (click here to watch this movie)
  34. Ghost Rider 2 (Nicholas Cage)I’m pretty sure the first one was better, but I’m a Ghost Rider fan. I loved the comic book as a kid, and I still liked the cheesy live action movie. At least it was better than Spiderman 3. (click here to watch this movie)
  35. Little Nicky (Adam Sandler) Adam Sandler plays the son of the Devil and he basically leaves hell to live on earth. There isn’t any action I can think of, but it’s been a while since I saw it. If you’ve seen other Adam Sandler movies around this time period (Big Daddy, Billy Madison, The Waterboy), then you know what to expect. (click here to watch this movie)

  36. Wishmaster 3 ( Jason Connery) The Djinn is back at it again, but this time at a college. We even get to see him fight an angel. It was about right here that they started to veer toward the Leprechaun style of franchise. Unfortunately it didn’t work out well for the franchise. (click here to watch this movie)
  37. Jeepers Creepers 2 (Ray Wise) Pretty much the same movie as the first one. The biggest difference is that it does seem to embrace the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise by acknowledging that it is a little bit of a corny horror film. Funnier than the first, and not as serious. (click here to watch this movie)
  38. Stigmata (Patrica Arquette) This movie was OK, but I think it was just a money grab to capitalize on the stigmata hysteria at the time. Every TV show out was talking about it back then, and suddenly a movie. The movie is similar to Emily Rose, but not as scary and possibly slower. It’s worth watching at least once. (click here to watch this movie)

  39. Poltergeist (JoBeth Williams) There’s nothing scarier than being a little kid and watching another little kid get sucked in by the TV. It’s not as scary now that I’m an adult, but still worth the watch. (click here to watch this movie)
  40. Pumpkin Head 4 (Bob Gunter) My least favorite movie in the series. It lost that cheesy indie feel that the first three had. I’m not sure why, but I love the feel of old school scary movies much more than the reboots and upgrades being put out. With that said, it was pretty much what I expected based on the previous three… but the feel is gone. (click here to watch this movie)
  41. Touched By An Angel (Della Reese) This was a long running series on ABC Family. The concept of the show is that angels are everywhere and they look like regular human beings. It’s a feel good series that is very family friendly. If you have young kids, you can enjoy several seasons of this show with them. I personally found it to be a good show, but too slow for my tastes, which is the only reason it’s this low on the list. (click here to watch this movie)
  42. Dominion (Christopher Egan) Probably one of my least favorite story lines, but I enjoyed the action and cinematography on this one. This is actually a TV series that was inspired by the much higher ranking movie, Legion. This show failed to live up to it’s full potential because the writer seemed to rely on the fact that they main characters were angels and demons, instead of writing a good story line based around angels and demons. (click here to watch this series)
  43. End of Days (Arnold Schwarzenegger) I can’t place my finger on it, but there was something about the end of Schwarzenegger’s early career that I didn’t like. This along with The 6th Day were not his bests works. On a more positive note, we do get to see the Terminator fight the Devil, so there’s that. (click here to watch this movie)
  44. Down To Earth (Chris Rock)Not one of my favorite Chris Rock or angel movies, because it’s been done over and over again. The plot is: a guy dies, and is then given a second chance at life by being placed into another body by his angel guide. As far as remakes go, this isn’t a bad one, but if you’ve seen one, you’ve seen em all. (click here to watch this movie)
  45. The 4th Kind (Milla Jovovich) Not technically an angel or demon movie, but we get the hint that the alien might not actually be an alien, but a demon from ancient Babylon. It’s better than some of the above movies, but since they don’t come right out and call the alien a demon, I moved it lower on the list. If you want to lose at least a night’s worth of sleep, watch this late night after you put the kids to sleep. Just don’t shoot your kids if they open your door in the middle of the night without warning. (click here to watch this movie)
