Final and least well-known installment in the Mark IV series of fundamentalist apocalypse films. About to be executed by the forces of the Antichrist, fundamentalist Christian guerrilla David is rescued by Connie, an Antichrist agent pretending to be a double agent for the Believers' Underground. Connie hopes to trick David into leading her to the dissidents' hidden base. Meanwhile, Armageddon and the Second Coming draw nigh.Written by

To understand the right wing mindset you have to view these films; and ones like them. There is a level of U.N. hatred and fear that comes across. This hatred is embraced by many organizations like the JOHN BIRCH SOCIETY and other groups. The core reason for this hate is the belief by the screenwriters that a one world military and government will form to enslave mankind. This government is preseumed to be the now ineffectual U.N. On forming this government a mark will be enforced on a persons right hand or forehead. Many theologians debate what this mark will; be but the current belief is it will be a biochip implant. Think I'm talking trash talk...millions believe this stuff. This film is credited with starting a scare campaign with people who viewed it. To the films credit, nothing like it had been made before it's release in 1972.
