Storyline

This mind-bending thriller follows two brothers who receive a cryptic video message inspiring them to revisit the UFO death cult they escaped a decade earlier. Hoping to find the closure that they couldn't as young men, they're forced to reconsider the cult's beliefs when confronted with unexplainable phenomena surrounding the camp. As the members prepare for the coming of a mysterious event, the brothers race to unravel the seemingly impossible truth before their lives become permanently entangled with the cult.

Goofs

As the Ascension approaches, the phases of the third moon go from waning crescent to waning gibbous to full, which is the opposite of the actual order of the moon's phases. (Although this could be an error, it could also be a deliberate reflection of the supernatural or otherworldly nature of the rest of the film.) See more »

great rope scene
26 June 2018 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

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.
