Storyline

Dating back to the time of Jesus Christ, an ancient relic known as the Loculus has been fought over by the forces of light and darkness down the centuries. Created in 50 AD, the wood panels of the Loculus are emblazoned with two images: the Ankh symbol - a looped crucifix - and the Caduceus - a rod entwined with two serpents. On its perilous journey through history, the Loculus was further adorned with more arcane mystical imagery including pentagrams, hexagrams, a crucified serpent, the naked human form divine and a hermaphrodite. And many have tried to unlock the secret of the sacred artefact - a secret only a chosen few know contains profound and overwhelming ramifications for mankind. In 1299 a Jewish alchemist's attempts to unravel the enigma ended in disaster. And in 1710 Sir Isaac Newton, discoverer of the laws of gravity and a foremost member of the Masonic Order of the Knights Templar, also strove to answer the riddle. But with the art of science in its infancy, Newton ... Written by ALan Jay

A miraculously bad movie - I love it.
13 August 2003 | by DereksdontrunSee all my reviews

Saw this at a press screening and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Can't remember ever being in an audience that was laughing as much as this. Brings tears to my eyes now just thinking about poor Celia Imrie's death scene (that squeak!) or Derek Jacobi getting tied up with rubber gloves. How the hell did this get made?

The real puzzle is that director Stuart Urban was behind the greatest British TV series of the 1990's - Our Friends in the North. I guess he just shoots whatever script he's given good or bad.

Honestly, Revelation is soooo very very bad that I might even buy a copy of it to watch when I'm stoned. Hilarious.
