The Gathering: Where Evil Souls Rule An underground church unleashes a human disaster When a hole in the ground opens up in a small English town, local priest Luke Fraser is shocked to discover what appears to be an ancient church lurking beneath. Fraser asks a friend with a background in archeology, Simon Kirkman, to investigate the ruins and Kirkman is startled to find a series of striking realistic sculptures and an unusual portrait of Jesus in which he is turning away from the church. As Simon and his wife, Marion, are driving home from the site, they accidentally hit Cassie Grant, an American drifter who is crossing the street. While Cassie isn't seriously injured physically, she has suffered a blow to the head that's left her with a mild case of amnesia; Marion brings Cassie home to recuperate until her memory returns, and in the meantime, Cassie helps keep an eye on Michael, Simon and Marion's young son. Soon, Cassie begins having vivid and disturbing dreams involving the people of the town suffering violent deaths. Simon and Luke begin wondering if the church was buried on purpose, and if so, why, and if Cassie's nightmares are somehow connected to the discovery of the buried place of worship.
