Second Name (film)

Second Name (film)

"Second Name" ("El Segundo Nombre" in Spanish) is a 2002 thriller/horror movie by the Spanish director Paco Plaza, starring Erica Prior, Denis Rafter, Craig Stevenson and John O'Toole.

After the suicide of her father, Daniella (Erica Prior) investigates her family's past.

The plot involves a sect called the Abrahamites, who (according to the movie) sacrifice their first borns following an alternative interpretation of God's Will in the near-sacrifice of Isaac.

Caravaggio's Ufizzi version of the biblical scene is shown in the movie to illustrate this alternative belief.

The movie version of the Abrahamites traditionally give their first borns the father's middle name, hence the title of the movie.
