THE CHURCH – Interview with Writer/Director Dom Frank

Not since The Exorcist has clergy fallen under such virulent attack by unseen forces when all hell breaks loose in The Church.

Here is our interview with Writer Director and Producer Dom Frank. 

In this twisting, heart-pounding thriller, the minister of a once vibrant, landmark Baptist church, now struggling to survive, is the sole hold-out in a decaying Philadelphia neighborhood earmarked for gentrification.  But ultimately, the preacher's steely resolve to preserve his family's evangelical legacy in the community and dwindling congregation dissolves under relentless pressure from his status-seeking wife and greedy church leaders–Lured by cash bribes and promises from unscrupulous developers to establish a flashy "mega-ministry" elsewhere.

 

Soon, the spirits of congregational members deeply wronged of centuries past – stirred from the disquiet of their graves by the remorseless trespasses of another generation – begin to make their displeasure known. As the sinners, abruptly and inexplicably bound within the confines of the sanctuary, begin to fall prey to unseen and ominous forces, they must all re-examine their choices and bow to the will of the covenant … only to reveal the righteous among them.  THE CHURCH WEBSITE.
