“The Visitation” reveals a small town, almost destroyed by supernatural events involving a mysterious stranger and his unsolved past. When a self-proclaimed prophet arrives in Antioch, the small town becomes a gateway for the supernatural. Messianic images, healings, and miracles bring the once crumbling town to life. The entire town talks about Brandon Nichols, the “Antioch Phenomenon,” or maybe the “Messiah.” Travis Jordan, Kyle Sherman, and Morgan Elliott are not convinced by his powerful influence on Antioch, and unconventionally unite to uncover the truth behind the mysterious “man of miracles,” before the unthinkable occurs.

“The Visitation” is a powerful, captivating film about a spiritual battle between good and evil and its life and death impact on the townsfolk of Antioch. This is one of several compelling supernatural adventures penned by noted Christian author, Frank Peretti (“This Present Darkness”). The film’s director, Robby Henson, does a wonderful job of breathing life into the story. What appears to be good works performed at “revival” meetings in the town of Antioch rapidly become a major cause for concern by the citizens for a variety of very good reasons.
Typical of most Peretti novels, there are plenty of suspenseful moments and clever plot twists throughout the story. The film captures the impact that seemingly harmless temptations can have on our lives, and how faith in an almighty, merciful God can save us from ourselves. “The Visitation” is a must-see for anyone interested in the spiritual realm and how we can appropriate the power of God to triumph over the evil that confronts us.
Editor’s note: It has been Dove’s policy not to award The Dove Seal to a film that contains a verbal curse, such as “go to hell” or “damn you.” However, because of the immediate and exacting consequences of such a curse in this film, the review board has made an exception in this case. Dove always looks at context as well as content when evaluating a movie. Therefore, the committee has awarded the Dove Family-Approved Seal for audiences age 12 and over to “The Visitation.”
