Trivia

The video begins with a disclaimer/warning that lasts several minutes, and covers such things as mental health, plant growth, the behavior of pets, operation of machinery, gas mileage and a warning that there is no side two of the video tape. That warning is followed by; "However, if you DO discover one...DON'T look at it!" See more »

Quotes

Dr. Howl: Do not attempt to flip the tape when you reach the end of side one, no matter what you are told by later instructions on the tape. There is no side two. However, if you do discover one, don't look at it.

This is the video THEY DON'T WANT YOU TO SEE!
3 April 2004 | by (Atlanta, Ga (until X-day)) – See all my reviews

I can truely say, this is the first DVD to ever clear my sinuses just by watching it! Yes, "Arise!" has it all... aliens, armageddon, sex, salvation, yeti-spotting, accubeating, nuclear destruction, anarchomaterialistic sarcastoblasphemy, audio-visual media barrages, how to tell the difference between "you" and "them", and the word of J.R. "Bob" Dobbs. AND THAT'S JUST IN THE FIRST 15 MINUTES!

"The world may end tomorrow and YOU MAY DIE!" Can you really afford NOT to be informed and ready for the end-times?

WARNING! Do NOT drive or operate heavy machinery during or immediately after viewing this DVD. Reality perception will be altered. This is a good thing.
