Storyline

While on duty, David Vaughn and Victor Hernandez, two emergency paramedics receive a call from a young girl whose mother has lost consciousness in a deserted area, but they soon discover that the life they have to save may be their own. Kidnapped and locked in an isolated building, David tries to discover the truth behind a secret cult and their beliefs. As Victor's beliefs are challenged and the fine-line between religion and science are crossed, David must find a way to escape and get out, before "they" get him. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

[first lines]
Lina Vance: So you're saying that the Quanta Group is *completely* self-sufficient. No medicines, no shopping for clothes, no sneaking out to a movie every now and then?
IO: Well occasionally we need special supplies, but we spend most of our time working on our studies. We like to keep to ourselves.
Lina Vance: Well I'm sure you can understand that that kind of behavior can make some people a little uncomfortable. So how do you respond to those who call the Quanta Group a cult?

Utterly disappointing and hardly worthwhile effort
25 March 2014 | by kannibalcorpsegrinderSee all my reviews

After responding to an emergency call, a group of paramedics find themselves abducted by a strange doomsday cult that has intentions of including them in their plans, forcing them to fight their way out before the group carries on with their plans.

This is an utterly terrible and completely boring thriller masquerading as a horror film with the one single marking point for it's inclusion in the genre is a single scene where a formerly dead victim is reanimated through unknown means and is up walking around soon afterward with a strange look in their eye. Beyond that, there's hardly anything here that really gives this one a horror feel or tone, and the fact that the majority of the film time is spent with them doing nothing but sitting around or focusing on the group telling each other to get ready but not doing anything else. This one leaves far too much unexplained or really confusing as to it's inclusion, leaving the whole thing an unmitigated mess that focuses on completely non-threatening cult that serves no other purpose but to continually keep the film going without explaining anything. Tiresome, clichéd and rather uninteresting make this a really useless entry all around.

Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language and children-in-jeopardy.
