In this sequel to Apocalypse: Caught in the Eye of the Storm (1998), police officer in search for answers, Thorold Stone, joins a rebel group of Christians to thwart the Antichrist's plan to use virtual reality to solidify its power.
This is the sequel to Apocalypse: Caught in the Eye of the Storm (1998). In this movie Thorold Stone is still looking for his family. The Christians, whom the rest of the world has started to call The Haters, are being framed for many murders and terrorist acts. Thorold and his partner go to investigate the location of the detonator of one of these acts. They find a group of Christians holding a service. He arrests them and one of them hands him a disk from O.N.E. , One Nation Earth. He finds men in the building who aren't Christians. They chase them around and one of them is killed. Then he meets with Mr. Parker who works for Franco Malacousso. Parker shoots them both but Thorold doesn't die. He is then framed for the shooting of his partner and he goes to a computer programmer with the disk. Virtual Reality is used to bring the Day of Wonders to fruition. There is something odd about the CD that the woman gave Thorold because the programmer can't get access to it and they take it to...Written by

Just before Thorold and Willie appear in Helen's hideout, Jake is watching one of the videos from Helen's grandmother. Somehow the TV turns itself off because no one has a remote. This is evident because Jake has the VR goggles, not a TV remote. See more »
"Thoroid Stone" (Jeff Fahey) is a police officer who is totally devastated because he has lost his wife and child to the supernatural phenomenon known as "the Rapture" which was covered in the previous movie "Apocalypse". While absorbed in his thoughts he gets a call that a school bus has been bombed and he races to the scene to investigate. Once there he is informed that the people responsible for the bombing is a group called "the Haters" who oppose the new world dictator, "Franco Macalousso" (Nick Mancuso). But Detective Stone is not necessarily convinced that this group was responsible and the deeper he probes the more evidence he uncovers that they are being framed. Additionally, he also discovers a connection to a top-secret event called "the Day of Wonders" which Franco Macalousso is set to unveil in the next few days. Anyway, rather than disclose any more details and possibly spoil the movie for those who haven't seen it I will just say that this was a very imaginative film. It was also a bit better than its predecessor due in large part to some notable additions which included Tony Nappo (as "Willie Spino"), Carol Alt ("Cindy Bolton") and the aforementioned Jeff Fahey. Likewise, Nick Nancuso replaced Sam Bornstein in the role of Franco Macalousso. These additions, along with retaining Leigh Lewis ("Helen Hannah"), were definite improvements. On the flip-side though I must admit that the overall plot which involved "virtual reality on steroids" did seem a bit far-fetched. Still, it was an entertaining film for the most part and because of that I rate it as slightly above average.
