Film Review: ‘The Remaining’

18 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Genre mashups don’t come much odder than “The Remaining,” a theologically questionable but fitfully exciting melodrama about fear and loathing among the non-Raptured. once this small-budget indie finishes its limited theatrical run and is resurrected in homescreen platforms.

Director and co-scripter Casey La Scala strikes dim echoes of “Left Behind,” “The Leftovers” and Michael Tolkin’s overdue-for-rediscovery “The Rapture” while focused on a cross-section of unfortunates who don’t make the final cut when God separates the wheat from the chaff. During La Scala’s version of Judgment Day, souls are separated from their bodies and whisked up to heaven — leaving behind an unsettling abundance of corpses, and triggering panicky news accounts of an “Instant Death Syndrome” pandemic that is “both troubling and foreboding.”

This sudden accumulation of cadavers — accompanied by earthquakes, loud thunder, downpours of fire and ice, and sundry other biblical portents — puts a serious damper on »

Last week we brought you the artwork for the latest end of the world flick, The Remaining, and now today we have the trailer for you to contend with! Don't get left behind! Sit back, grab an umbrella (doesn't matter if it's indoors as if you're still here after the Rapture... you're shit outta luck anyway), and see it for yourself.

Directed by Casey La Scala and starring Alexa Vega, Johnny Pacar, Shaun Sipos, Italia Ricci, Bryan Dechart, Kim Pacheco, John Pyper-Ferguson, Erin Murphy, Liz E. Morgan, and Hayley Lovitt, The Remaining arrives in theatres on September 5th.

In the flick, after a series of worldwide cataclysmic events, a group of survivors struggle to endure.

Check out the one-sheet below along with the trailer, and look for more on this one really soon... providing you're still here to read it. Not sure if God's party bus has good wi-fi.

Trailer: Alexa Vega is One of the Remaining, But Will She Survive?

5 August 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Alexa Vega, Italia Ricci, Johnny Pacar, Shaun Sipos, Bryan Dechart and Liz E. Morgan star in the supernatural thriller The Remaining, a film hitting select theaters on September 5th which is seeing the release of a trailer today. Watch it via the player here.

The film comes to us from filmmaker Casey La Scala. That name might be familiar to you if you were following the development of The Amityville Tapes, an incarnation of the upcoming Amityville film that Casey was working on with Dan Farrands (I'm told their script was ultimately not used for Amityvile, however, they're listed as producers).
