Storyline

Tom Canboro is a police detective with a Christian sister, Eileen, a brother, Calvin, a wife, Susan, and eccentric brother-in-law, Jason. One night, Jason seemingly goes insane and tries to kill Eileen, calling her a "hater". Tom soon realises this may be a conspiracy going as far as devil worship, but as he speeds in his car to get help, he suddenly loses control and crashes. Waking up in a strange hospital, he finds years have passed and people all over the world are wearing the mark of 666 on their right hands, and all those who don't are being killed off. Franco Macalusso, the believer in world peace Jason was fond of, now controls the world, and is trying to bring the world together as it was at the tower of Babel. Meanwhile, the "Haters" or Christians are hiding out and airing TBN tapes on the air for people to realise the Messiah is really the Antichrist, but their leader, Helen Hannah, is arrested...

Worthwhile?
7 January 2005 | by (Halifax, NS) – See all my reviews

This film is the definition of bad, anyone with a entry-level interest in film could tell you that and describe why. I'm not going to do that. As a Christian and a cinephile this film poses a dilemma for me. In the special features the filmmakers talk about how if the film reaches one person for Christ than it will all be worthwhile. For them, the "worthwhile" is all the work they put into it. For me, the "worthwhile" is how this film simply reinforces negative stereotypes of religious art as pandering and anti-intellectual. And I can't help but skeptically state that a conversion caused by this disaster couldn't possibly be genuine and based on anything more than fear, and also couldn't possibly justify the film; from Van Impe's shameless self-promotion to the apologetic problem of "opening your eyes and seeing the light." Watching this now, I was surprised to see some interesting concepts hinted at early on: the world as a network theory is a fascinating area, but it's given little treatment beyond mind-control here. It's not that if we can unite we can accomplish anything, but we already are united whether we know it or not. Instead, the "Christian" view of "in the world but not of it" trumps and ignores any other interpretation. Also, endless amounts of literature have been devoted to these end-times themes and apocalyptic characters that there is no excuse for these cartoon-ish characters. They really should make Nietzsche and Dostoyevsky required reading in High School, or maybe in Bible Schools.
