About the Movie

Director Joshua Overbay deftly leads audiences down a twisting path of passion and devotion, envy and manipulation in this sympathetic portrayal of a modern-day cult leader and his spiritual convictions. Devoted to a simple life of faith in unforgiving Kentucky backcountry, a small religious sect seeks spiritual awakening as their Prophet (John Lina) nears death and his son, Eamon (Luke Beavers), prepares to step forward as their new leader. But, in his last moments, the Prophet instead names newcomer David (Chris Nelson) as his spiritual successor. Tension mounts when David prophesies about the end of the world. Fighting doubt every step of the way, he must lead the group through the final days. As their lives hang in the balance, each person must decide who to believe — and how much they will sacrifice to be saved.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: This low-budget debut by Joshua Overbay cooks a surprising amount of tension from the barest minimum of ingredients. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Jul 10, 2014

Rotten: Never as tense and gripping as it should be, the incidents and most of the performances too tamped-down to spark a much-needed sense of animating friction. – Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, Aug 7, 2014

Fresh: Director Overbay, working from an effective screenplay by his wife Ginny Lee Overbay, slowly ratchets up the tension in quietly compelling fashion. – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, Jul 11, 2014

Fresh: Overbay's palette is carefully lyrical, at a benumbed Martha Marcy May Marlene pitch, he pays attention to the verdant landscape and keeps his cast at a pensive and watchful low boil. – Michael Atkinson, Village Voice, Jul 11, 2014
