Plot summary[edit]

Years after a drunken car crash that almost took his life, Tommy Carter (Mackie) has reinvented himself as a therapist/spiritual advisor who advocates a synthesis of world religions and positivity. He's parlayed this vocation into a successful book release that one day draws the attention of Angel Sanchez (Whitaker), a profoundly troubled man fixated on the "untimely" death of his mother. When Carter takes on Sanchez as a personal client in an effort to raise funds for his indebted brother Ben (Epps), things quickly take a turn for the worse. Angel needs much more than a simple life coach. Then begin madness and horror.



Repentance opened on February 28, 2014 in limited release. The film's opening weekend gross was $501,290 in 152 North American theaters (a per theater average of $3,298).[4] The film remained in theaters in limited release for 4 weeks, earning $1,189,612 in its entire run. Repentance was available on Digital HD and Video on Demand on June 10, 2014 and was released on Blu-Ray and DVD on June 24, 2014.[5][6]
