"AS IT IS IN HEAVEN"

"After the death of the Prophet, a man is called to lead his small religious sect as they anxiously await the end of the world they were promised. Director Joshua Overbay deftly leads audiences down a twisting path of passion and devotion, envy and manipulation in this sympathetic portrayal of a modern-day cult leader and his spiritual convictions. Devoted to a simple life of faith in unforgiving Kentucky backcountry, a small religious sect seeks spiritual awakening as their Prophet (John Lina) nears death and his son, Eamon (Luke Beavers), prepares to step forward as their new leader. But, in his last moments, the Prophet instead names newcomer David (Chris Nelson) as his spiritual successor"
a cult approaches the end of the world

critic's pick! "cooks a surprising amount of tension from the barest minimum of ingredients."
— new york times

"a tantalizing experience . . . potent"
— rogerebert.com

"a disquieting film about testing faith"
— chicago sun-times

"the stakes are nothing less than the end of days. . . quietly compelling . . . ominous"
— hollywood reporter

". . . finds its creepy heart in the performance of Chris Nelson, who imbues his fledgling cult leader with deep spiritual feeling and a welcoming humility . . ."
