A man wakes up in the morning to discover he has a weird mark behind his neck; the number 665. He tries to find out what it means, discovers that his fathers number was 664 and he fears the worst for his child..
It's early on a June morning, and radio station KCEH, which seems to play little else besides "The Macarena," says the day is already a scorcher and traffic is Hell. The radio wakes Nathan, asleep next to his wife. He checks his son, sleeping in a crib, and then he begins his toilet. He's freaked out to discover that numbers are carved into his head, near his right ear. The numbers 665. His wife wants to stay asleep, so he calls his mother for advice. She casually drops a bomb, and lots of things begin to dawn on Nathan. Where is he? Who is he? Why is he here? His infant son helps him figure it out. Written by
In the first part of the end credits, Satan's cloven hand changes the names with marker so that they have a more "Hellish" feel, such as changing "Matt Frewer" to "Batt Frewer" (with an appropriate bat prop hanging down), "Brett Sullivan" to "Brett Skullivan", "Paula Devonshire" to "Paula Devilshire", "John Holosko" to "John Hellosko", and "Paul Ackerley" to Paul Heckerley".

I am really confused about this short film. Most modern shorts are experimental in nature and meant to be training grounds for young directors, writers and actors. However, this film was made by experienced people who didn't need to make the film in order to make a name for themselves. Matt Frewer in particular, who starred in the film, is a very experienced actor with dozens and dozens of roles to his credit (including, uggh, "Max Headroom"). Perhaps he and some buddies just did it on a lark or for fun--I really wish I knew.
The film shows a guy (Frewer) looking into the mirror and noticing a 665 behind his ear! When he calls his mom, she tells him that his father had a 664. Could this mean that Frewer's young son could be the anti-Christ?! Funny, very irreverent and strange--this is one strange but mildly enjoyable film.
