We have watched most if not all the left behind movies and our 5 children have seen them as well. Out of all that we have seen the best ones are: Thief in the night ,Distant thunder, Prodical Planet 1&2, and Image of the Beast. The reason is because these movies have stuck with our children even into adulthood. Whenever they hear the song " I Wish We All Been Ready" they remember what the movies are about and that Jesus' second coming is very real. The newest Left Behind movie plays that song at the end and our 26yr old son said," Man that song still gives me nightmares of being left behind! This movie is nothing like the other ones you showed us when we were kids. Now those movies were messed up! They really messed with your mind and literally scared hell out of you!" You should either remake these (with the only changes being the graphics and the actors ) or just put them on blu ray disk the way they are. Jim and Tammy Sanders
During the filming of the scene where Patty is walking over the railroad tracks on the bridge, Patty Dunning states in an interview that she did, in fact, drop down in between the trestles, and that she was really glad she weighed what she did at the time so that she didn't go all the way through, because the bridge was about 60 feet high.

No one knows when it's going to happen. When they asked Him, even Jesus said that He didn't know the exact time. But it's going to happen. One of these days and it could be any minute now, Christ is going to come back for His own. After that it's going to be pretty awful here on Earth.
Well for example, the Bible says that right now the spirit of God is holding back the full force of evil in the world, but after the believers go, the spirit will too. That means a whole new ball game,...

This is an interesting treatment of a subject that is quite controversial, (just read the other comments on this film). Apparently, you either love it or hate it and it seems most people make that distinction based on whether they believe the tribulation and end times will happen as portrayed in the movie.
Basically, the film - and its sequels - were made for about $1.30 each. The production values are right down there with "Plan 9 From Outer Space" and the acting is about on the same level as "Glen or Glenda", (my apologies to Ed Wood). Putting aside the religious message, the story is as scary as they come. Add in even the slightest thought that the story might actually be close to something that might happen in the future and it becomes even scarier.
This movie, and its sequels, didn't try to bring in the reasons why the tribulation happened when it did. "Left Behind" and "The Omega Code" tried to get in everything "Thief" did and to explain all the politics and maneuvering in the Middle East leading up to it. The net effect was "Thief" did a much better job on the scary part of movie, instead of spreading itself too thin trying to explain what was happening in the Middle East at the same time.
Forget the politics and watch this movie, and its sequels, for what they are - horror stories. That they may be horror stories told, indirectly, by God makes them just that much more frightening. If it makes you think about the subject, it has done its job - even if you never believe.
