Storyline

While going to the town of Ashby Wake, the drifter Cassie is hit by a car driven by Marion Kirkman and loses her memory. Marion invites Cassie to stay in her huge old house with her family, while recovering from the trauma. Cassie becomes very close to Michael, the young son of Marion's husband Simon Kirkman. He is researching a recently discovered buried church from the First Century, with images of the crucifixion of Jesus and many anonymous persons watching it. Cassie starts having visions and premonitions with some locals, and decides to investigate the weird and nasty mechanic Frederick Michael Argyle. Her findings about who she is and the mystery relative to the locals and the town surprises her. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

(at around 24 mins) Luke Fraser puts an Art Gallery DVD into a standalone DVD player, whose remote control is clearly sitting on top of the player, but he interacts with the disc using a mouse as if it were in a computer's DVD-ROM drive. You can't connect a mouse to a standalone DVD player - it only works with its remote control. See more »

The Bishop: Your faith in scientific rationality.

Something is missing in this film - no surprise, it was cut
21 September 2007 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

Yes, unfortunately most DVD releases of "The Gathering" are cut, and that slightly ruins the film. Not because a short explicit scene would make a great difference, but because plot holes were left where about 10 minutes are left out: The authenticity of two main characters, played by Ricci (Cassie) and Gruffudd (Dan) is keenly impaired, and that reduces the overall impression quite a lot. My rating counts for the original version, it would have been 6 for the short version. More info about the differences at "alternate versions" and in the message boards here.

Apart from that, this film has a really nice and intriguing story, mystery, suspense, some religious revelations, a little bit of horror and a gorgeous main actress. Worth watching... if you can get it uncut.
