Review - A Thief in the Night

This viewing was prompted by an article by a woman who grew up in an evangelical Christian household in Iran back in the 70s and 80s. She recounted the terror inspired by this movie about the fabled End Times and the fates that would befall the faithful who didn’t manage to get raptured before the shit started going down. At a similar point in my life I wanted to see this because it looked scary, but it was showing in churches rather than theaters and I didn’t want to sit through the additional stuff that would no doubt have entailed. I can’t say how my tween self would have reacted to this, but my adult self found it silly and dull in approximately equal measure. See if desperate
