Goofs

The German word for "death" is "Tod". "Heimgehen", the expression used by Jim, might be used as a euphemism, just as "going home" might so be used in English, but it is not "the German word for 'death'". See more »

Pull the veil over this dud!
23 January 2016 | by chrismackey1972See all my reviews

In a way it was disappointing, but in another, it's what it claimed to be. A Jim Jones-type of guy (Thomas Jane) commits suicide with is cult, and several years later, the lone survivor -- Sara -- returns to the scene with a film crew headed by Jessica Alba. I won't give away any spoilers, but it was not good in my opinion. The acting was fine, but the story line was wanting. It was very slow to the point that it dragged in many places. I started it around 9:30 in the morning, and I was falling asleep half-way through. Much of the coloring looked like a transition between black-and-white and color, giving it a somewhat grayish look. Maybe I just saw a bad copy. It's not a found-footage film. I do not recommend.
