Quotes

Patty: What about the mark?

And that no man might buy or sell, save he that have the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.' Does that mean that people will have to wear the mark?
Patty's Grandmother: Oh my yes. People can't buy food or clothes or anything, gasoline.
Patty: Well that sounds like Dad's credit ...

Armageddon and bell bottoms
29 March 2001 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Sequel to "A Thief in the Night", this one answers the question: Does Patty sell her soul to Satan? This is the best of the four movies; it's creepy, full of unintended humor, spookiness, and has a funky twist at the end. Accept Jesus into your heart now, before the rapture, or you'll have to hang out with crying high school girls for seven years.
