15 | 88 minutes Director: Casey La Scala
A cute young
wedding couple, an awkward love triangle, a superfluous hanger- on and reels of shoehorned- in found footage collide with the goddamn Rapture in this awkward allegory. When the souls of the pure are sucked up to heaven, our gorgeous crew stupidly bimbles between every stock apocalyptic location – church, hospital, government relief outpost – dodging crazy weather and demons as they do.
The cast isn’t bad, the effects are pleasing enough in their scarcity, and the horror setpieces are as inoffensive as they are predictable. But the biblical direction grates, the script salts the wound, and the twisty, preachy ending might as well have flashing lights and a siren for how obvious it is even 20 minutes in. You’ll be wishing for the Rapture to hit while you suffer through the rest.
