Today’s Featured Video: FilmSweep presents an exclusive clip from God Is a Bullet.
God Is a Bullet, based on the gripping novel by Boston Teran, which draws inspiration from true events, revolves around Bob Hightower (Coster-Waldau), a detective who tragically loses his daughter and ex-wife at the hands of a satanic cult. Overwhelmed by grief, consumed by anger, and frustrated with the inadequate investigation, Hightower decides to take matters into his own hands. He leaves the police force, adopts a new appearance, and infiltrates the cult, determined to bring down its leader, Cyrus (Karl Glusman). To achieve his goal, Hightower must forge an alliance with Case (Maika Monroe), the only female survivor of the cult, who is equally resolute in reclaiming her power.
In the exclusive clip, Hightower and Case find themselves on the road, and Hightower seeks to uncover the truth about Cyrus and his background. However, Case seems reluctant to delve into the subject, preferring to discuss anything else. Eventually, she relents and offers a brief explanation of Cyrus’s transformation. In passing, she makes a comment about “those fanatics who find solace in religion,” a statement that immediately provokes Hightower’s ire. The ensuing conversation showcases their starkly contrasting perspectives on matters of faith and spirituality.
