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 »

Intriguing movie - PG 13 rating is needed
28 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I read the book several years ago, so I can't say whether it follows the story very faithfully. Regardless, it's quite a good movie. Peretti is a fantastic author, and can hold a reader's (or viewer's) attention. I like this better than Hangman's Curse, and this is more adult-oriented. We watched this with our 13 year old son and 11 year old daughter. They had to look away quite often when things got frightening. It was surprising to check out some of the main (and even minor) characters and see how many movies they have done. The acting was professional; some of the filming techniques were inconsistent and shaky. Even if you're not interested in "Christian" stories, if you like suspense/horror movies, you will enjoy this movie. For a relatively low-budget film, it's well worth the time. I'll watch it again!
