Storyline

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 <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Crazy Credits

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".

Wacky, devilish fun!
11 October 2002 | by (The Mitten State, USA) – See all my reviews

Matt Frewer stars in this darkly funny short about man whose morning takes a supernatural turn when he suddenly discovers the number 665 carved behind his right ear. Upon learning the origin of this unique birthmark, he comes to realize that there's a good chance his baby son might be Lucifer himself.

Throughout 6IX's eleven minute running time, it somehow succeeds in being humorous, spooky, and intelligent--a unique blend of comedy and paranoia-themed horror that many full-length movies strive for but can't attain. Moreover, the film's overall atmosphere is effectively creepy and surreal, and the photography is simply outstanding. Frewer plays his five roles flawlessly and with a suitable touch of genial eccentricity. All in all, 6IX succeeds in all departments, from its stylish opening shot right down to its goofy closing credits.
