Horror aficionado site Bloody Disgusting described the film, written by Mickle and Nick Damici, as "a post-apocalyptic vampire story in the style of The Grapes of Wrath."

"McGillis plays a nun who joins a small team of survivors (including Damici, Danielle Harris of Rob Zombie's Halloween and Halloween 2 remakes, and Conor Paolo of Gossip Girl) as they make a treacherous journey north to safety through the war-torn United States," reported the website. "McGillis's character, Sister, faces a crisis of faith during the vampire bloodshed, ultimately taking up arms to do battle with her newly formed family unit."

The project from Glass Eye Pix and Dark Sky Films is currently shooting in Pennsylvania and New York.

McGillis was nominated for a Golden Globe for her acting in the 1985 film Witness. Her other credits include the film The Accused and a two-episode turn in season 5 of The L Word.
