Acclaimed UK horror novelist Adam Nevill follows up last year’s American debut (The Ritual) with a brand new foray into the twisted world of religious cults. In Last Days, struggling filmmaker Kyle is offered a considerable amount of money to shoot a documentary about The Temple of the Last Days, a once popular religious cult that self-destructed in the 1970s. After decades of silence, several members of the cult are ready to revisit locations and offer detailed accounts of their twisted experience, and Kyle is expected to shoot it all. Eleven days, six locations, three countries…100,000 pounds.
With the assistance of best buddy cinematographer Dan and reclusive editor Finger Mouse, Kyle agrees to take on the project. But as he delves deeper and deeper into the history of The Temple of the Last Days, the cult’s twisted secrets threaten to tear his world apart. With Last Days, Neville has crafted a genuinely scary story full of nerve-jangling moments…even if it runs a bit long at 500+ pages.
