When Sam is recording Allison's speech in the hospital, the footage she takes is not the same as what she later shows to Tommy and Jack. As the footage is being recorded, Sam sees a dark figure behind some glass as a light flickers on and off. In the footage she shows them later, a shadow passes through a hallway. See more »

Pretty Good...And I'm An Atheist
17 January 2015 | by dongillette1See all my reviews

I dunno - all you folks who are calling this Christian propaganda might need to lighten up some. Did you like "Prophecy?" or "The Omen?" Get my point? It's all religious baloney--this is no different. But I was really floored that the acting and effects were so good. I mean, I was under the impression this was one of those fundamentalist Jesus flicks like Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas or that other piece of crap with Nicolas Cage, but it wasn't. It was actually good. Now, I don't buy into all this biblical claptrap and haven't since I reached the age of reason, but don't you suspend disbelief every time you watch a film? So take the "preaching" out of it and just watch it for what it is - a pretty good horror film about the end of days. Really, we all need to lighten up a bit. It's just a movie. Relax.
