Everyone Gather Around for The Gathering


This film kind of reminds me of Anna Paquin film (Darkness or The Dark), just for the fact that it's already has made it's rounds overseas (and even onto DVD), but it's finally hitting the states, as a limited release on January 6, 2006.

The plot for THE GATHERING, which stars Christina Ricci and is directed by Brian Gilbert goes like this:

While going to the town of Ashby Wake, the drifter Cassie is hit by a car driven by Marion Kirkman and loses her memory. Marion invites Cassie to stay in her huge old house with her family, while recovering from the trauma.

Cassie becomes very close to Michael, the young son of Marion`s husband Simon Kirkman. He is researching a recently discovered buried church from the First Century, with images of the crucifixion of Jesus and many anonymous persons watching it.

Cassie starts having visions and premonitions with some locals, and decides to investigate the weird and nasty mechanic Frederick Michael Argyle. Her findings about who she is and the mystery relative to the locals and the town surprises her.
