Way Better than Expected!!!!
29 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

I was not sure about getting this movie due to some of the negative reviews. One in particular did not even review the movie, he just wrote about how much he hates the Christian religion (big waste of reviewing time). Let's get one thing straight... take the time to read the plot before you rent a movie. This was clearly going to be a Christian film as described in the description of the movie. "Friends gather at a wedding, but the celebration is shattered by terrifying apocalyptic events forcing them to examine life, love and FAITH as they must choose between REDEMPTION and survival".

If you can put your opinion of religion aside, then you will really enjoy this film. I personally do not take each movie I see as a literal account of what has or will happen. I watch movies for the enjoyment or relaxing and watching a movie.

All that being said: This movie was really good! The special effects were great, with extremely believable visuals and sound. The acting was awesome, especially for a bunch of non-known actors. The story got to the point and there was not a second of down time. My husband literally jumped several times from some of the horror scenes in the movie. By far one of the best horror films I have ever seen!
