In Antioch, the former Father Travis Jordan lost his faith on God three years ago when his beloved wife was murdered and the criminals never found. Suddenly, miracles happen in the little town: the son of the newcomer and veterinary Morgan Elliot survives a car accident without a single scratch; Travis's dog Max revives after being buried; a paraplegic walks; a wounded woman and her father with brain tumor heal. In all the events, three men wearing black were seen, and then the unknown Brandon Nichols claims to be Jesus Christ. The local population worships Brandon, while Travis and Morgan feel that something is wrong and conduct an investigation, disclosing that evil has possessed the dwellers.Written by

While reading the date on a grave marker, one of the characters says, "May 13. That's nine years ago today", implying that the scene is taking place on May 13 of the current year. However, the corn in the fields is far too tall (easily over 6 feet) for that time of year. See more »

When I read the book "The Visitation" by Frank Peretti, I couldn't put it down. I loved every minute of it, and recommended it to all my friends and family as a "must-read". Mr. Peretti is a talented author, and has a way of pulling the reader into a story that twists and turns and keeps the reader on their toes. The movie did the the exact opposite. I realize that it is rare that a movie comes close to being as good as the book, but I was hopeful that the spirit of the book, the feeling of the book, or at least the BASIC story of the book be represented well in the movie. It wasn't. Sadly, it fell into the stereotype of a "christian-made" movie. Medeocre. (Which I find frustrating). This was an excellent book, with an excellent story to tell, and it did not deserve to be butchered the way it did. Not only was the story hacked to bits, but the acting was lacking and the cinematography at times was confusing and distracting. As much as I loved and recommended the book, I have to say that this is a movie to avoid.
