I have been wanting to see this movie since it's short lived theatrical release. I really have no idea why, other than I thought it intriguing to see what a "Christian" horror movie would be like. Also in Thr3e's favor is the fact it is not a remake.
In a nutshell the plot of the movie revolves around a seminary student who, while driving home from class, gets a call threatening that unless he confesses the sin of his past he will be killed in 2 minutes. The first 20-30 minutes are just continuations of this type of scenarios, which is disappointing, as it just screamed Saw and to a lesser extent, Seven rip-off. The movie did attempt to change things up a bit at the end, and steer away from the Saw storyline. Even the twist however, did not save it from being a mediocre movie. It was not anything that had not been done before and not a film I would care to rewatch again. Just touching on some other aspects of Horror movies, there is no gore or nudity/sex scenes at all. I do not think that these are requirements for a successful horror film, however they sometimes help the viewer overlook deficiencies in other areas of the film.
I thought the casting was pretty good, especially Bill Mosley as the killer. Much like Geoffrey Combs, I think Mosley is a very talented actor that gets typecast as a character actor and as a result, often gets overlooked for roles he would excel at.
The music was just background music. I cannot say any of it was memorable and even writing this the next day, I cannot remember any of it. Since I neither liked or disliked it, I have to give it a neutral 5.
Much like the music, the movie overall just does not stand out. I wanted to like it and wanted it to be different and unique in some way but at the end of it all it just did not deliver. I recommend possibly renting this one if you want a low key drama movie with slight horror overtones but I would not add it to the collection.
