Who thought this was a good idea?
10 December 2018 | by Java_JoeSee all my reviews

In the pantheon of bad Christian cinema there is always one constant and that's the audience giving it top marks because they're into the message while ignoring the movie itself. And this is no different.

Kirk Cameron stars as a young man who drugs and kidnaps children from the orphanage, tells them they're dead, and brings them to his pig farm where they're forced to help him do chores and play with his mentally challenged sister. Along the way this is eventually resolved when the orphaned children get Stockholm Syndrome and believe they're part of a loving family. And in any other situation this would be a horror movie. But in Christian cinema? It's a heartwarming tale of love.

It's this kind of blindness to a movie's faults that makes Christian cinema the wasteland it truly is. For every decent movie with a Christian message, like "Risen", there are hundreds of these titles like "A Little Piece of Heaven" that figure anything can be forgiven, so long as the message is a good one.

And the fact that there's only 5 reviews of this movie ought to show anybody that this wasn't very well received.
