    Like Paranormal Activity at a wedding - Paranuptial Activity? - this low-budget horror has its moment. Much, much better than Legion, although not as scary as the actual Book of Revelation.

    As Christian knock-offs of secular films go, The Remaining is surprisingly respectable. At the risk of crazily overrating the film, The Remaining has to qualify as one of the most stirringly adequate, totally acceptable explicitly Christian horror movies ever made.

    La Scala is able to maintain interest and sustain narrative momentum throughout his fantastical narrative, even while he covers overly familiar territory. In this, he gets immeasurable aid from the sincere performances by his game cast.

    There’s a fundamental problem here. The movie relies on the instinctual human fear of death, but its message is that dying is a promotion.

    This is Christian horror. It was a decent, documentary-style horror. Surprisingly decent actually, but what it is most successful at isThis is Christian horror. It was a decent, documentary-style horror. Surprisingly decent actually, but what it is most successful at is reserving the Christian cheese-fest towards the last 10 minutes of the film. It is cringe-inducing, but at least it is a very small amount of time. Overall, I kind of enjoyed it, I hoped they showed more of the book of Revelations because their gritty/realistic take on that story was surprisingly engaging. The change in eye color was ingenious.

    In order to enjoy this, there should be a preamble to friends: this is Christian-centric and has a preachy/public service announcement ending. Will I watch it again? No.

    It's not terrible, just boring.

    It's not terrible, just boring.

    I don't mind them stopping down so much to proselytize but "The Remaining" could use a tighter edit. Horror with a religious bent is a bit of a new thing for me so there's not much to judge this by - it's like "Sharknado" but with shadowy, unseen, flying, scorpion-stingered demons instead of flying sharks.
