Did You Know?


Although set in the Appalachian Mountains of the Eastern United States of America, the film was shot entirely in New Zealand's Banks Peninsula. The two areas share a similar geography. See more »


When Ann leaves the bedside of John and you hear her praying to keep him around, her reflection passes by a glass of some type and an older gentleman comes into focus in this same reflected area just after her reflection goes by.

The "glass" is a picture frame and the "older gentleman" appears to be her father posing in front of the church, given the immediate scene cut to Ann playing the organ in the church. See more »

A focused, situation movie
31 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

A movie about three survivors that avoided radiation from an unknown event that keeps you thinking the whole time.

This movie was really interesting. With only the 3 characters the movie did not struggle to give each character a personality, and not feel out of place.

Craig Zobel seems to know how to make you uneasy. The whole movie I felt uneasy at what was going on and was never really sure what was going to happen. While Compliance was a whole different level of uncomfortable, this movie actually had me cringing in anticipation quite a few times.

Margot Robbie - Nailed her character. I felt like she really pulled it off.

Chris Pine - Also did well, there were a few scenes that I thought he felt out of character but all in all really well done.

Chiwetel Ejiofor - I think he also nailed his character. I could see an argument against him for a lack of emotion in some scenes but I felt like it was intentional and that he pulled it off really well.

All in all I would definitely recommend it.
