Storyline

Tom's protective older sister, Samantha, goes missing and the strange events surrounding her disappearance become a match that sets aflame a small town's racial mistrust and mass hysteria eleven years later. In 1997, when tension in the Middle-East is prominent, the future of our world remains uncertain. Tom begins to have terrifying dream memories and finally decides to uncover the truth behind his sister's disappearance. Tom attempts to confront Ezzedine, an old Arabic recluse who harbors the answers to all of his questions concerning Samantha's vanishing. But the suspicious hermit is being viciously pursued by a police officer whose sanity spins wildly out of control. A last desperate act sends Tom home to protect his family and it is there that the greatest secret is revealed. For Tom's story is that of a witness to the tragedy of our world. A witness to... The Coming. Written by Chad Costen

doing a lot with a little
13 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies that spoil you for Hollywood fare, because this is almost as good, yet was made by a rookie on a low budget. Throw 10 or 50 million bucks into the mix and the result should be far better... but here, it wouldn't be. Sure, a few things could be improved on, but you don't miss them here because the storytelling, editing, and directing are so good.

The acting was B-grade in a lot of places, but that's OK. Most of the leads were solid and the movie was about what was happening more than it was about any individual, so the acting didn't feel like the point.

My one complaint is with the ending, which confused me. The whole movie was leading up to... something, but I'm not sure what it was. Maybe I'll watch it again sometime to try and figure it out. Despite its low budget, it is enjoyable viewing. Very impressive debut!
