Trivia

To prepare for his role as cult leader Simon Leach, Bill Oberst Jr. studied the vocal patterns of Powers Boothe's 1980 Emmy-Award winning performance as Jim Jones in the TV-movie Guyana Tragedy, finding Booth's impersonation of Jones' voice more powerful than tapes of the real Jones. See more »

No filler thriller
27 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

A group of distraught teenagers are lured to a "get better camp" by a self proclaimed pastor/counsellor who has a hidden agenda.

These teenagers have been majorly messed over so their minds are easily manipulated. The controlled diet and fears being preyed on play a factor as well.

This is one of those movies where everything happens in the last few minutes. Done in found footage fashion although it would have been scarier if you didn't see Simon's face(the cult leader).

I felt like I was at an 80 minute AA meeting the way they do the taped interviews and group interactions.

Unfortunately you have to pay attention to the boring first 80 minutes because subtle things and quick scenes put together the crux of his madness.

If you don't mind going up a steep hill for 80 minutes to have an 8 minute ride then you'll like this movie. But if you want action and fast forget it.

No one boldly goes where no ones gone before, but you won't mind it. Be warned though you have to watch a man with a semi use a desk drawer to reach climax.
