Johnny Messner and Jon Huertas star as paramedics David and Victor who are abducted by cult members on a routine call out in the desert in this third film from the Raw Feed banner. David and Vic are held in cells along with a little girl named Libby, whose mother they were trying to resuscitate when they were taken hostage. David and Vic soon find out that their captors believe that the world is about to end and that they are planning to transcend to another plane by committing a mass suicide. The race is on for David and Vic as they attempt to resist brainwashing and escape the complex where they are being held.

Well itís a case of third time lucky for the Raw Feed team in my book after the somewhat lacklustre Rest Stop and the overly confusing Sublime. This third film, which is directed by Dan Myrick (The Blair Witch Project) was something different (granted, as are the other two titles under the Raw Feed banner) but this one worked a treat.

Itís a case of simple yet effective here as the sets and costumes are limited in favour of convincing storytelling and excellent digital effects. Messner and Huertas are very good here as are Erik Passoja as IO and Daniel Benzali as The Teacher, and the supporting cast are all similarly convincing.

OVERALL SUMMARY
Believers is not terrifying but it plays on our perceptions of organized religions and cults as well as our increasing panics about the end of the world.
