ConvergenceIt’s a long three -day weekend, Ageists and since you’ve already seen Deadpool (right?), it’s time to see what else is out there. Hopefully, you caught our take on Dark Sky Films newest offering, CONVERGENCE. If you haven’t, check it out here and come back and watch our interview with the film’s director, Drew Hall.

 

 

In CONVERGENCE, Detective Ben Walls (Clayne Crawford, Rectify, A Walk to Remember) lives a quiet life with his wife and newborn daughter. But he’s called into action after an explosion at a local women’s health clinic – and explosion that may be the work of a terrorist bomber Ben has been tracking.

While investigating the scene, another shocking event lands Ben himself in the hospital. When he awakens he is surprisingly uninjured and ready to go back into the field. But at the behest of his captain (Mykelti Williamson, Forrest Gump, Con Air) and the hospital’s few but eerily incongruous patients and staff, Ben is forced to remain inside the building.

 As Ben navigates the hospital’s alarmingly empty hallways, he soon finds himself hunted by a self-proclaimed avenging angel (Ethan Embry, Eagle Eye, Vacancy), who may be the terrorist he has been looking for, and haunted by apparitions whose deadly motives remain a mystery.
 A modern-day myth about redemption that’s equal parts crime thriller, supernatural horror and action spectacle, CONVERGENCE will keep you guessing at every turn of its twisting plot right up until the last shocking frame.  Also starring in this gripping and unsettling film are Chelsea Bruland (Left Behind), Gary Grubbs(JFK), Laura Cayouette (Django Unchained) and Catalina Soto-Aguilar (Sons of Liberty).
OneFilmFan.com said CONVERGENCE “successfully transcends its genre with potent thematic elements about faith, forgiveness, and grace and can be a sobering reminder about our own choices and humanness.” Jamie Hall of Fraking Films called it “brilliantly directed, terrifically acted.”
