This is the movie that Kevin Smith self financed and released ... I think the budget was around $4 million. The film is about a fundamentalist religious group that takes its beliefs to some murderous extremes.

I expected this movie to be pretty terrible, but it wasn't. It is very dark and there really aren't many characters you can root for, but I still sort of liked it. I think most of my "liking" of the film was due to the performance of Michael Parks as the preacher. He is awesome in a difficult role.

I am guessing most people won't care for this movie, but if you're up for something dark, give it a shot. I'd give it a B-.
