Great movie
29 May 2013 | by (02914) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie! I rarely watch horror movies as many of them are disturbing. This movie was very well written. The music in the film was fantastic & the characters were all characters that many of us can relate to. The church that was shown in the beginning I have been to many times so I thought that was great. This film made for good conversation between me & my friends that were watching it with me when it was over regarding the game the kids were playing that got them in trouble! I really hope that there will be a Jonah Lives part II. I won't give away the ending, but possibly, Jonah still might not be done with what he has to do!
