Trivia

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.

Goofs

During the chase scene towards the railway trestle the road appears one minute to have new yellow striping and the next cut having no striping. As the yellow striping don't have the old white ones underneath, the road must have been unmarked and painted during filming. The USA was converting their road markings from white to yellow during this period. See more »

Quotes

Pastor Balmer: [quoting Scripture] The world will be at ease; banquets and parties and weddings, just as it was in Noah's time before the sudden coming of the flood. People wouldn't believe what was going to happen until the flood actually arrived and took them all away. So shall My coming be. Two men will be working in the fields, one will be taken, the other left. Two women will be going about their household tasks, one will be taken and the other left. So be prepared for you know not what day your Lord is ...

a sad film from people that meant well
29 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

A THIEF IN THE NIGHT is a film filled with flawed theology. The plot revolves around a married woman left alone when a rapture comes. Fleeing the UN controlled white house and congress and senate she starts running from military troops who arrest or kill on sight people who have no mark on the forehead or right arm. This films theology has christ returning twice. In this film there is a second chance for people left behind to face the time of the antichrist. This is against scripture and the parables of christ. Christ returns once. Just once. not two or three times with christ making a pretzel in the sky! A THIEF IN THE NIGHT and films like it stir up fear and attendance at gun shows. This film is the TRIUMPH OF THE WILL for the john birch society and militia movement.
