On a texted signal, they take over services and begins massacring non-believers throughout the city, believing it is their mission to “save” the souls of humanity for God, which can only be accomplished by killing people with swords and daggers…

Reviews:

“Anyone who is a fan of Christian Mythological horror (movies like Fallen, Stigmata and their ilk), or anyone who is just tickled by the idea of a zombie movie with Christians in place of the living dead, owes it to themselves to write this in pen on their schedule … A truly inspired original effort that comes Highly Recommended.” Ain’t It Cool News

“… this sick satiric tale—in which religious zealots conduct their own Rapture with cross-shaped daggers on a stalled subway—pushes sensitive buttons about fundamentalist hysteria. Then again, maybe it’s because the movie raises the even more subversive possibility that the zealots are right. Either way, this is scary as hell and impressively unrelenting.” The Village Voice

“The filmmakers are good at screwing with our minds. Likewise the ending. The technicals are terrific, and the camerawork pushes the intensity meter while the cast do everything demanded of them with utter conviction. There is no winking at the audience, and the panic factor gets higher with every scene. No wonder the film won several awards…” Urban Cinefile
