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...

According to Margot Kidder, she and Howie Mandel were unaware that this was a Christian film until well into filming. Kidder is an atheist and does not agree with the message this film presents. See more »
Franco Macalusso is the Anti-Christ. He sometimes wears glasses. This would not occur in reality because the Anti-Christ is Satin... a fallen Angel, and he cannot be killed. Therefore, he would not need glasses to correct his vision. See more »

I loved this movie. The caring and the love these people shared with each other made me a little emotional. Gary Busey was great as the unbelieving cop/brother/husband, Margot Kidder played Eileen very believable, and I just adored Howie Mandell as Jason. Howie played the clingy little brother to the hilt. The rest of the cast was wonderful as usual.
Eileen's relationship with her little brothers hit home with me. It was so warm and loving. I watch it several times per week. I loved the acting and the actors. They were well chosen and I was hoping they would be used in a 5th installment. I have no name for it, but Lucifer has to get his in the end and I want to really see it happen.
