The Visitation is a supernatural thriller movie from 2006 starring Martin Donovan, Edward Furlong, and Kelly Lynch. The plot revolves around a former minister named Travis (Martin Donovan) who returns to his hometown after suffering from a tragic loss. Shortly after his arrival, strange and unexplainable events begin to occur in the town.

Travis' friend Kyle (Edward Furlong) claims that he has seen a vision of the Virgin Mary, and soon the town is filled with people who have been visited by her. A group of locals believe that this is a sign of the apocalypse, while others think that it's just a hoax. Travis, who is a skeptic himself, tries to investigate the events and uncover the truth behind the supposed visits.

As the story unfolds, Travis begins to realize that there is more to these events than meets the eye. He uncovers a sinister plot that has been brewing in the town for years and is unlike anything he's ever seen before. The town's doctor (Kelly Lynch) is the only one who seems to recognize the strange things that are happening and begins to help Travis as they race against time to prevent a catastrophic event.

One of the most compelling aspects of The Visitation is its exploration of faith and belief. The movie questions what it means to have blind faith and what it takes to truly believe in something. Travis, who has lost his own faith, is conflicted throughout the movie as he tries to reconcile his past and his present. The town's people, many of whom are searching for something to believe in, are also confronted with difficult questions about what they are willing to accept as truth.

The movie also has several suspenseful scenes that keep the audience on the edge of their seats. There are a few jump scares that are well-timed and effective, but the movie relies more on tension and atmosphere to create a creepy and unsettling mood. The religious imagery and symbolism used throughout the movie add to the sense of unease and make the story even more compelling.

The acting in The Visitation is solid across the board, with Martin Donovan delivering a particularly strong performance as Travis. He portrays the character's inner turmoil and conflict with authenticity and nuance. Edward Furlong, who plays Kyle, also does a good job of conveying the character's intensity and zealotry. Kelly Lynch's character, the town's doctor, adds an element of scientific skepticism to the story and provides some much-needed balance to the religious fervor that is taking over the town.

Overall, The Visitation is a well-crafted and thought-provoking supernatural thriller that poses interesting questions about faith and belief. It's a movie that will keep you guessing until the very end and leave you with a lot to think about once it's over. So, if you're in the mood for a suspenseful and intellectually engaging thriller with strong performances, The Visitation is definitely worth a watch.
