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.

Trivia

The filmmakers use the song "House of the Rising Sun" throughout because the lyrics are in public domain, which helped them stay within their limited budget. See more »

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 »

Well written Sci-Fi Thriller for those who like to think.
24 February 2019 | by piratefemme-144-400028See all my reviews

Nicely paced reveals without actually giving any end-game full answers. Was really pleased with this. I'm not a horror fan, but a huge thriller buff and I appreciate tension, build, mystery, more tension, some nail biting, tossing in questioning of reality, and deeper meaning layered into the context. Yeah, some of the free-will questions are spoon-fed, but there are other western family/religion and political ideals being questioned as well. There is one quote in the film that really put the entire thing in a nutshell, but I don't want to give anything away. It got incredibly high rating everywhere I've looked except IMDb, so was suprised at 6.5 here. I assume its from people expecting a horror and being given a Sci-fi philosophical thriller and being miffed about it.
