What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Remaining is a faith-based horror movie about the immediate aftermath of the Rapture (as prophesied in the Bible's Book of Revelation). From the moment the Rapture begins, there's frequent horror movie-style violence and imagery. Characters collapse and fall to their deaths, with their eyes wide open in a weird, opaque glow. Children are shown dying in the middle of a basketball game; adults keel over in a restaurant. There's blood, arm dislocations, demonic noises, and characters dying via tentacles shot through their chests. Basically, it's Cloverfield with an evangelical Christian spin, and as such, will be best enjoyed by those who believe in the Rapture as described in the Bible.
