A supernatural thriller that addresses questions of life, love and belief against an apocalyptic backdrop. A group of close friends gather for a wedding, but the celebration is shattered by a series of cataclysmic events and enemies foretold by biblical end-times prophecies. The survivors face a horrifying, uncertain future as they scramble for safety, but as their world collapses around them in chaos and terror will they choose real life through faith, or just try to survive?Written by

During the wedding of Skylar (Alexa PenaVega) and Dan (Bryan Dechart) there is an apocalyptic event that kills most of the guests. The survivors are the newlywed couple and their friends Tommy (Johnny Pacar), Jack (Shaun Sipos) and Allison (Italia Ricci). Skylar is mysteriously wounded and the teenager Sam (Liz E. Morgan) joins the group that seeks shelter in the church of Pastor Shay (John Pyper- Ferguson) that is convinced that they are living The Rapture from the Bible. They discuss faith and the fate of the survivors that are doomed to die.
Religion is a theme that is to be respected. However "The Remaining" is a religious brain wash about Christianity in a view of the Apocalypse. The Brazilian DVD does not provide any information in this regard and I was lured with the DVD cover and bought the DVD expecting to see a horror film. My vote is three.
Title (Brazil): "Remanescentes: Esquecidos por Deus" ("Remaining: Forgotten by God")
