Quotes

Mary: Father, for all the deceits I may have hoisted upon you, yours to me remain the gravest, but I will forgive you because the Bible tells me to do so, and now you shall do the same for me. Whenever you stand praying, forgive. If you have anything against anyone, forgive, because your father who sits in Heaven forgives your transgressions, and if you cannot forgive, neither will the Almighty. If you are truly sworn to the Bible, now is the time to start acting like it.

Would probably have worked better taking a more dramatic approach
19 February 2016 | by Seth_Rogue_OneSee all my reviews

I went in to this movie not really thinking it would be all great, Jennifer Carpenter (from TV's Dexter) was the swing-vote why I decided to go ahead with it.

However she was not really why I kept interest, cause frankly she wasn't that great in this one.

Luckily the other cast was slightly better, no Academy award winning performances or anything but decent enough.

I went in to it thinking it would be a horror, and even though the beginning of the movie does fall in line with that and there are horror elements that pop out from time to time in the movie I'd say it's first and foremost a drama.

And even though the horror segments are neatly orchestrated it often just don't feel like it's from the same movie sometimes, characters who at one point are shook up can in the next minute be going on their business like nothing happened, so yeah uneven direction for sure.

It's almost as if someone wrote a somewhat realistic day to day script what life in a cult would be like and then some big shots told someone else to re-write it to a horror instead so they just cut and pasted some horror segments into the script where it could fit.

And the ending is pretty awful.

5/10
