Michael (Swayde McCoy) and Gabby (Jordan Ashley Grier) are genuinely in love and have a relationship built on trust and mutual understanding, so it only makes sense that they'd spend a weekend at his (absent) grandparents' cabin in the woods for some romantic alone-time. And everything goes truly great - until Michael claims he's not Michael but God speaking through Michael's body, and that Gabby will die on Sunday and go to hell if she doesn't accept him as God and worship him accordingly. At first, Gabby thinks this is a very sick joke, even if Michael's arguments that he is God are very convincing - but then Michael changes back into Michael, and he doesn't only claim to have no recollection of the "God"-episode, but also apologizes profusely and promises to seek treatment should it ever happen again. Thing is, it does happen again, and the more Gabby talks to Michael's God persona, the more she thinks he's genuine, and starts to enjoy their conversations. This is extremely worrying to Michael when he's himself again, as he fears not only for his mental illness, but is afraid to drag Gabby down with him. But despite his urgings, Gabby refuses to take him to a hospital to get checked, instead wants to talk to God some more. Problem is, where there's God, there's also the Devil ...

 

I will admit, with a running time of over two hours, this film is a bit on the long side and could have done with some moderate trimming - but that aside, The Great and Terrible Day of the Lord is a quite fascinating film, one that finds the right balance between philosophical discussions and suspense piece, genres that at least on paper couldn't be further apart, only the blend makes sense here. And even if the film is only two people in one (rather luxurious) cabin and offers little in terms of physical spectacle, two strong performances, fluid camerawork and an inventive directorial effort keep the thing from ever losing steam, making this into one unusual but enjoyable piece of thriller entertainment.
