Story


Nowhere is safe from the effects of the Rapture in "Rapture-Palooza", a new end of the world comedy from Lionsgate.

When the Apocalypse actually happens and a billion people are raptured up to heaven, Lindsey (Anna Kendrick, "Pitch Perfect") and her boyfriend Ben (John Francis Daley, TV's "Bones") are left behind in suburban Seattle. The young couple tries their best to lead a normal life surrounded by talking locusts, blood rain showers and pot-smoking wraiths. But when The Beast (Craig Robinson, TV's "The Office") makes his home base in their neighborhood, Lindsey finds herself the object of his affection. With the help of her family, friends and a lawn-mowing zombie neighbor (Thomas Lennon, TV's "Reno 911"), the young couple set off to stop the Anti-Christ from taking her as his bride...and just maybe, saving the world in the process.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..halfway isn't funny..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]
“..with the plot already spoiled by the Book of Revelations, Chris Matheson's script focuses its energy on small, wickedly funny gags, half of which Robinson seems to have sputtered out as improv..”
by Amy Nicholson [LA Times]
“..is a high-concept comedy that plays out within a cartoonish, post-apocalyptic milieu, but adheres too closely to hackneyed rom-com conventions..”
by Drew Hunt [Slant Magazine]
