Storyline

Eight friends meet for their monthly couples brunch. But what starts as an impromptu therapy session/airing of domestic grievances takes a sudden, catastrophic turn when the city falls victim to a mysterious attack. Trapped in the house and unsure of their fates, these seemingly normal people become increasingly unhinged to surprising results. Written by Oscilloscope Pictures

Goofs

Glen's belief that he will go to heaven when dies and his motivation for lethally drugging the wine is so the others will too. Being a biblical historian and devout believer it seems very strange that he fails to realize that his plan will result in his breaking the commandment "Thou Shall not kill" several times over and his own participation would be considered suicide which are both grievous sins in the Christian faith that guarantee his being condemned to hell. The sin of murder is negated by Tracy telling every one about the plan but their acceptance would still be seen as suicide meaning they would be condemned to hell anyway. See more »

Quotes

Hedy: Do you think that when we die, we have to wear the clothes we died in for all of eternity?
Buck: No way. I bet we get those kickin' white robes like you see in the old cartoons.
Hedy: I look awful in white. Maybe Emma would let me borrow some sweats.
Buck: I bet you get a sweet-ass harp too.
Hedy: Hmmmm...
[scoffs]
Hedy: Do you have any idea how many human beings are estimated to have lived and died on Earth throughout all of time?
Buck: I have absolutely no idea.
Hedy: 106 billion.
Buck: Wow.

You don't need a big budget to make a movie about the world ending
10 February 2015 | by scottyxlSee all my reviews

I quite enjoyed this movie. Usually a end-of-the-world-movie involves lots of explosions but this movie took a whole different view on it.

The plot was genius: put a bunch of friends together, add a new person and make the world end. Taking place in a single house was a real nice idea, the mystery of not knowing what was going on outside really helped the plot.

The interactions the characters had in this film where funny, crazy and believable. Though its not a comedy where you are laughing all the time I found myself laughing more than in most big comedies.

Top notch acting really added to the experience. You normally don't expect such a cast in a low budget movie.
