Storyline

In Antioch, the former Father Travis Jordan lost his faith on God three years ago when his beloved wife was murdered and the criminals never found. Suddenly, miracles happen in the little town: the son of the newcomer and veterinary Morgan Elliot survives a car accident without a single scratch; Travis's dog Max revives after being buried; a paraplegic walks; a wounded woman and her father with brain tumor heal. In all the events, three men wearing black were seen, and then the unknown Brandon Nichols claims to be Jesus Christ. The local population worships Brandon, while Travis and Morgan feel that something is wrong and conduct an investigation, disclosing that evil has possessed the dwellers. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Near the end the film, it jumps back and forth between two scenes, one being the vet and her son in their home, with the long-haired man outside and the other being outdoors near the farm. From the vet's home looking outside, it is daylight. In the field scenes, it is dark outside. See more »

If you read the book don't watch the movie.
11 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie it's self was made well the problem I had with it was the plot. My husband and I were very disappointed and even a little angry to find that the movie barely resembles the book it is based on. I honestly wonder if the folks making the movie even read the book, it is almost as if someone came to work one day and said "I just read a really good book here is generally what it's about" and that is what the movie is based on. I do not mean to insult anyone but I just felt so strongly about this. We bought the movie right away because we wanted to support Christian movies and we were sorely disappointed. The characters were all messed up and wrong and the location of certain events were wrong. I just have to wonder what Frank Peretti thought of the movie. I know that you can't make a movie just like the book and due to budget and time constraints some dramatic license must be taken, but this was way off the scale of acceptable adaptations. If I hadn't read the book I would have liked the movie it was a good story, and it was pretty wall made. We will continue to support Christian movie endeavors, thank you for doing it. Just in the future, read the book.
