So you're saying that the Quanta Group is *completely* self-sufficient. No medicines, no shopping for clothes, no sneaking out to a movie every now and then?
Well occasionally we need special supplies, but we spend most of our time working on our studies. We like to keep to ourselves.

The Blair Witch Project director's thriller about two paramedics Dave and Vic (Johnny Messner and Jon Huertas) who are kidnapped by a strange cult named the Quanta Group. Led by a reclusive mastermind called The Teacher (Daniel Benzali), the cult believes they have condensed the secrets of time and the universe into a mathematical formula which proves the world is about to come to an end. The cult has no intentions of letting Dave and Vic leave, so they have to fight for their lives while trying to escape the remote compound.
The film touches interesting themes, such as the relation between God and science and the differing religious opinions of the two protagonists, but unfortunately doesn't really get anything very exciting out of the subject matter. The nature of cult membership is left unexplored, so the cultists never come across as very fascinating characters and we are left with a standard survival thriller. Even though the film avoids overt violence and instead attempts to create a feel of claustrophobia by setting the events in an underground compound and having the characters spend a significant part of the running time locked in toilet stalls, the atmosphere is nothing that hasn't been done much better in many other movies already. I would only recommend the movie to the biggest thriller fans and perhaps to those interested in mathematical mysticism.
