The Remaining hadn’t been on my radar until today, and even though it still doesn’t sound like my cup of tea (I don’t always like “religious apocalypse” movies) – it’s got some interesting talent behind it. Directed by Casey La Scala (Grind), the film stars Alexa Vega (Machete Kills), Shaun Sipos (Texas Chainsaw 3D), Johnny Pacar (Flight 29 Down), Italia Ricci (“Terminales”), Bryan Dechart (Step Up 3D) and newcomer Liz E. Morgan.
The film “is an action packed, horror thriller about a group of close-knit friends that come together to celebrate the marriage of Skylar (Vega) and Dan (Dechart). The group is enjoying the festivities when tragedy strikes. The wedding party is sieged by a series of catastrophic events which turns the celebration into a life-and-death struggle. The young group is desperately scrambling for refuge and self-preservation while an enemy they never knew existed unleashes its wrath against those remaining alive. They must understand what is happening around them and why, and find a way to survive together in a new world of death and destruction.”
Affirm films, a division of Sony, will either be handling sales for this or outright releasing it – it’s unclear from the release. But you’ll have to wait until 2014 either way. Head inside for some stills!
