Two brothers receive a video from a cult they escaped years earlier. Older brother Justin Smith had pulled his younger brother Aaron out believing the group to be a death cult and insists that they had committed mass suicide. Aaron remembers nothing but good times. Justin admits that he had not actually witness any deaths. They go back to examine their vastly different past experiences. Aaron falls for Anna. There is something surreal happening within the camp.
The premise is interesting. I love the rope scene. It is simple and compelling. It's a simple in camera effect which isn't even that difficult. What it is is that it presented something mysterious and intriguing. It is the best idea ever. Then the special effects get surreal and random. It stops being compelling. As for the actors, the two brothers are lackluster. They don't have much personality and honestly, sometimes I confused them. At a certain point, I stopped caring. It's a standard indie failing. They need at least one top level actor but they don't have it here. Also, Justin needs better motivation to go back. The movie isn't clear enough. Quite frankly, he would probably hide from it rather than confront it. This indie has some greatness in it but not consistently great.
