Set in an otherworldly human existence, scientist Sterling Pierce dedicated his life to the quest for
immortality, slowly creating the building blocks of a groundbreaking serum named “Divinity.” Jaxxon
Pierce, his son, now controls and manufactures his father’s once-benevolent dream. Society on this
barren planet has been entirely perverted by the supremacy of the drug, whose true origins are shrouded in mystery. Two mysterious brothers arrive with a plan to abduct the mogul, and with the help of a seductive woman named Nikita, they will be set on a path hurtling toward true immortality. With Stephen Dorff, Moises Arias, Bella Thorne, Karrueche Tran, and Scott Bakula.
“A movie destined for a cult following and subsequent midnight showings, “Divinity” does commit the sin of placing style over substance, but there’s enough of the latter to keep one’s mind spinning along with it.” (Los Angeles Times)
“‘Divinity’ does cult the way cult was done in the day behind midnight.” (Film Threat)
“[Director] Alcazar pulls on whatever narrative thread suits his fancy in a given minute, but once you realize that piecing his shots together into something truly coherent is a fool’s errand, it’s a delight to accompany him for the ride.” (indieWire)
