I like the story you have here. Good camera work. Could use a little better casting but the idea seems like something that would make a cool movie

I'm not a horror/suspense kind of girl but this trailer got my interest. My only critique is as someone else said, the hook and the lack of a protagonist. Good luck!

This concept has a lot of legs. i hope that it's able to find the right twists and turns. I'm not a big horror fan, but the thriller aspect of it appeals to me. Good Luck.

I like this one. The only thing I think is missing is a fantasy element if you're going for horror or if you're going for a thriller, something alluding to a large conspiracy by a large institution that's seemingly bigger than the leads. Great editing, camera work and acting too.

great production value, really well put together trailer but lacking a hook to make me care about the plot and no real clear protagonist other then a faceless cult.

Oooooh! Chills :) I liked the trailer. Hope to see more. Really interested to see how the plot develops. Loved the cinematography. Creepy but didn't make me nauseous like so many horror films think you need to (jumpy cameras, weird angles). Good luck.

At this point I think the whole "religious conspiracy" premise is a little over-played in films, but the trailer seems promising enough. I'll be keeping an eye out.
