Nic Cage’s remake of Left Behind looks to have some divine competition in the form of Final: The Rapture. “Don’t Miss the Most Important Film of Your Life” might sound like the filmmakers are laying it on a bit thick…
…unless you consider the objective of their film is to render the audience born again scared.
Final: The Rapture is starting to make its way around the country theatrically, mostly Florida at the moment.
Judging by the trailer for Timothy A. Chey’s entry into the subgenre I’ve come to dub “Rapture Porn,” when the Rapture occurs, the human race will be divided into two groups: those that seemingly walk around aimlessly and those that join armed gangs of roving killers. Marantha News calls Final: The Rapture “The Scariest Christian Movie Ever,” for what’s that worth.
No, I have no clue what Marantha News is either.
Breathtaking, gripping, layered, and astonishing, FINAL is a gritty, international tale of four separate stories woven together by a common theme: the Rapture. In Los Angeles, Colin Nelson desperately attempts to flee to Bora Bora. Keenly aware that he’s in the Tribulation period, his only hope is in a mysterious man named Frankie. In Tokyo, a covert agent, Masashi, tries to unravel the disappearance of millions of people as the government closes in on him. In Rio De Janeiro, Marie searches for her final relative as time runs out. And on a deserted island in the South Pacific, Tom Wiseman, an avowed atheist, attempts to be rescued after his plane goes down. Bold in scope, FINAL will captivate you from the very first page to the stunning, tear-jerking end.
Nothing more to say as I think the final line in the trailer pretty much sums it up.
Actually, there is one more thing to say. What network news outlet has a teletype making a racket in the background during a live newscast in this day and age?
