Storyline

1851: Elias Howe receives patent for an "Automatic, Continuous Clothing Closure" (zipper) 1889: The Eiffel Tower is completed for the Parisian World Fair of the same year BUT, one detail that the history books never mention is that the World Ended that same year in 1889, in Paris. Just then, Lucifer & the Archangel Michael hatched a successful plan, followed it through, overcoming perilous obstacles, and got the job done. For the first time, our film documents and re-creates the End of the World as it really occurred. Written by Carl Laudan

Awesome!
6 July 2005 | by mygrain_5See all my reviews

I am on the screening committee for our local film festival and this short film is easily one of the best I've seen from this year's selections. Great cast, script, and set design equate to a heavily sublime atmosphere but is nicely complemented with humor and clever banter. The production is superb... it looks as if someone dumped a huge load of cash into making this little masterpiece. Meticulous in detail, this film achieves what some big budget production fall short of. After viewing the film I was left only wanting more!! Laudan is a fantastic director and writer and I can't wait to see what he has in store for us in his next film. BRAVO!
