Storyline

When a young woman opts to abort a miraculous conception, a Christian Fundamentalist group intervenes. Duped into an adoption scheme, Maggie agrees to carry the baby to term but gradually comes to suspect the entire arrangement. She ends up marooned at a rural service station, where she encounters a wise old radio preacher, Isaiah, and his reluctant prophet of a son, Manny, who end up guiding her on the rest of her journey. It's not an easy journey, however, as Maggie is stalked, chased and forced off the road. In a woodsy field, she comes face to face with her assailants and herself, as she prepares to undergo a painfully unorthodox delivery and yet another unforeseen miracle... Written by Anonymous

False Prophets is well worth seeing. Also listen to the Director's Commentary. Townsend gives a very candid and humorous account of making his first film.
10 July 2006 | by DaleInDSee all my reviews

If you are looking for a new twist to an old story, this is it. Lori Huering creatively portrays Maggie, a young adult who suddenly finds herself having to make several life changing decisions. These decisions are shared with her boyfriend, Wade, played by Clayne Crawford. Simple solutions can turn deadly if we are not careful, and that's something Wade quickly finds out. Placed in harms way, Maggie is befriended by a gas station attendant, Manny, played by Antonio David Lyons. Casting Lyons as the title role was a gutsy move on the part of Townsend. Lyons gives an excellent performance as Gas Station Jesus. Maggie and Manny begin a journey where there is no turning back and there is only one way to go. This film will ask...who do you trust? I look forward to seeing more work from Townsend.
