Actually based on a real cult

A lot of people think this is basedon the Jim Jones famous cult massacre but its actually based on the Hale Bop comet cult and its actually a true cult who poisoned each other with an apple pie special over 3 days as they believed aliens were coming to transport them to another world - how some people can fall for these cults is beyond me but it makes for fascinating viewing.

Thomas Jane was superb and reminds me of David Koresh another cult nutjob. Jessica Alba was just a bit of fluff on a stick and could have been substituted with any actress! I quite like cult type movies and there haven't been many lately!

It is a bit slow but there are some real jump scares - I messed ma pontaloons on at least 3 occasions so its not without its scares.

Overall though its pretty standard fair but worth a watch if you are a horror fan!

good fun but not for everyone

i don't really understand the plot. i mean, i could summarise it if asked, but too many questions are ultimately left unanswered to make a very compelling story. that may be at least partially actor Thomas Jane's fault for rewriting a large fraction of the screenplay. director Phil Joanou has nevertheless managed to make a fairly entertaining movie out of a seemingly incomplete script by writer Robert Ben Garant, some of whose work i've enjoyed in the past (viz. Let's Go to Prison and Hell Baby)

this one's a slow-burning mystery with very little style or atmosphere. the lack of these normally crucial elements is made up for somewhat by the cast, however, particularly Lily Rabe of American Horror Story renown and Thomas Jane (Jonathan Hensleigh's Punisher), who drives the film with his outstanding performance as Jim Jacobs, the highly charismatic role of a Jim Jones-inspired cult leader that he wrote for himself. there's a strange and pleasant familiarity to the character's appearance and affect that i can't quite place

the film is by no means a masterpiece, but it's an impressive horror genre debut for a director whose career largely comprises U2 music videos and a documentary of the band. i like it, and while i won't recommend it for everyone, i do recommend watching the trailer, and if it looks interesting to you, it might be worth a watch

Jump Scares for Lack of Substance

I can see where they were trying to go with this movie and where they fell short. At first, I loved the concept and basic direction. But then the movie's plot holes and overall less than stellar writing make its appearance. At times I was almost offended how the director apparently assumed that the audience is stupid.

On the opposite side of that coin, the movie has an all-star cast of great supporting characters. Lily Rabe basically just brings her AHS character over but it fits well. Meegan Warner is just as believable and talented as she is in Turn. Shannon Woodward really steals almost every scene she is in. Alba is serviceable in the movie while Jane is guilty of overacting at times.

Overall its not the worst horror ever but with the cast, it falls way short of its potential. It fell into the same trap many horror movies do, relying on jump scares to overshadow bad writing.
