Six months after the rage virus was inflicted on the population of Great Britain, the US Army helps to secure a small area of London for the survivors to repopulate and start again. But not everything goes to plan.
On one last road trip before they're sent to serve in Vietnam, two brothers and their girlfriends get into an accident that calls their local sheriff to the scene. Thus begins a terrifying experience where the teens are taken to a secluded house of horrors, where a young, would-be killer is being nurtured.
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

the book is awesome, potentially life changing. the movie captures probably 1/8th of the content of the book. the book is about "doing church" and contrasting that with having a relationship with Christ. Its sharp and wise observations of people and their organizations alternately enlighten and bring tears. I've wanted my wife to read the book for a long time and watching the movie together sent the completely wrong message. so many characters and stories are missing only to focus on the weakest part: the actual supernatural activities of the false "Christ". The background stories are what make the book so powerful. I can understand that they would make the move too long and actually push the film into another genre, but I was disappointed at what was actually there.
