Trivia / Apocalypse

For the Cloud Ten Pictures film series

  • Actor Allusion:
    • Jeff Fahey's character Thorold Stone in Revelation entering an ultra-realistic virtual reality simulation is an allusion to his appearing in another movie featuring a virtual reality program where his character is warped to the point where he claims to be God. In contrast, Jeff Fahey's character in Revelation claims that he isn't looking for God.
    • Corbin Bernsen plays a lawyer character in Judgment, which is an allusion to his role in the TV series L.A. Law.
    • At one point in Revelation; Willie jokes that he wished the Day of Wonders virtual reality program he was working on was operating so he could take a look at Cindy Bolton in a bikini. Carol Alt (who played Cindy) worked primarily as a model and was on the cover of the 1982 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
  • Old Shame: Margot Kidder didn't realize that Tribulation was Christian propaganda until she was nearly through filming. Apparently (and understandably) she didn't understand the plot until the end, when the Anti-Christ goes on a Motive Rant. Margot Kidder is an avowed atheist. People coming up to her and praising her work in said movie tends to be a Berserk Button for her.
  • The Other Darrin: Sam Bornstein played Franco Macalousso in the first movie, which was later played by Nick Mancuso in the following movies.

For the Derren Brown TV special

  • Dawson Casting: Fourteen-year-old Leona is played by a 22-year-old actress.
