Storyline

A couple flee a present-day religious community they've joined but find it's entirely surrounded by an invisible wall. They're the parents of the totally isolated cult's first child, who has a mysterious scar from a ceremony by the cult leader, who they caught sneaking off into the forest and teleporting into thin air. They're spotted by another malcontent, who's been searching for a way out for months. With nowhere to go and everyone else entranced by the idyllic new life, what can they do?

The Worst of Humanity
29 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When you run out of ideas, you go back to the same old stuff. This time it is a religious cult that is dragged to an unknown place by a charismatic leader. Everything is fine, until he is seen by one of the converts, standing in a light, conversing with some seemingly supernatural force. This leads to an attempt to escape and an encounter with a force field. Because everyone, including the guy's wife, has been brainwashed by the religious gobbledegook, he can't get any allies except for one guy who took off right from the start. This is an interesting story, but like so many Outer Limits, it has set such an insurmountable barrier to the participants, that it concludes in a most unsatisfactory, predictable way. I won't spoil it but, as I've mentioned in other reviews, there is a kind of unwritten literary rule that shows a light at the end of the tunnel.
