The Veil


Twenty-five years after members of a religious cult committed mass suicide, the lone survivor returns to the scene of the tragedy with a documentary crew in tow.

Reminiscent of Jim Jones (Jonestown), David Koresh (Brand Davidians, Waco TX), Mashall Applewhite (Heaven’s Gate) and other suicide cults of the 80’s and 90’s. This movie dips into the heart of the cult mentality, and promise of everlasting life beyond death.

Jessica Alba makes a return to Horror for the first time since “The Eye”, along side of American Horror Story alum, Lily Rabe and Thomas Jane (The Mist). Outside of my obvious peeve about jump scares, I enjoyed this movie, though the pacing may be a little slow for some of the more modern horror audiences. I have no real issues with any part of this movie, the acting was good, effects where not bad, the story was well written.

Just a few technical flaws of note..

  1. A body would not be “mushy” after 25 years
  2. Gasoline would probably not be usable after 25 years. Hell, I have an issue with gas for my lawnmower, left over from the previous season.
