Film / Apocalypse

Go To

Apocalypse is a Christian eschatological (end-times) film series developed by Peter and Paul Lalonde, and released by Cloud Ten Pictures, the producers of the 2000–05 Left Behind film series. It follows former World News Network reporter Helen Hannah as she and those left behind on Earth following the Rapture deal with Antichrist figure Franco Macalousso and his One Nation Earth (O.N.E.) government, trying to bring as many people into the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ before His return.

The series consists of:

A fifth film, The Chosen, languishes in Development Hell.


The Apocalypse film series provides examples of:

  • Abandoned Warehouse: An underground cell group of Christians (called "Haters" by One Nation Earth) was meeting there during the Tribulation period in Revelation.
  • Actor Allusion:
    • Fahey's character Thorold Stone in Revelation entering an ultra-realistic virtual reality simulation is an allusion to his appearing in another film featuring a virtual reality program where his character is warped to the point where he claims to be God. In contrast, Stone claims that he isn't looking for God.
    • Corbin Bernsen plays a lawyer in Judgment, referencing his role in 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 in a bikini. Cindy's actress, Carol Alt, worked primarily as a model and was on the cover of the 1982 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
  • Advertisement:
  • Aesop Amnesia: Despite the climaxes of Apocalypse and Tribulation involving exposing the Antichrist to the masses, he's still the indisputed world leader by the start of the next (probably attributed to his supernatural power).
  • A God Am I / A God Is You: Not only does Macalousso declare himself to be God, he also promises that those who believe in him can also be gods, using Scripture to back up his claims.
  • Alphabet News Network: World News Network, WNN.
  • Amoral Attorney: Victoria Thorne in Judgment, who plays a really manipulative bitch of a prosecutor.
  • Apocalypse How: Planetary scope of societal disruption severity (with a global Depopulation Bomb) at this point in the series.
  • Assimilation Plot: The goal of One Nation Earth citizens during the Tribulation to unite together for world peace, interpreted as the people becoming one in mind like those who attempted to build the Tower of Babel, heavily emphasized in Tribulation as police officers and O.N.E. agents hunt down those who have not taken the Mark of the Beast and force them to enter the Day of Wonders program.
  • As the Good Book Says...: Used by the Christian protagonists, but also used by believers in Macalousso's ideals in Tribulation with their interpretation of Genesis 11:6 being that if the world could unite as one, then they would be able to achieve anything.
  • Artistic License – Religion: The films follow many of the same misconceptions as the "parent" series Left Behind. For instance, in Tribulation, one character states that all Christians believe in the Pre-Tribulation Rapture.
    • Note, however, that this is a nonbeliever who says it in the story, so the misconception may be in-universe. The first seems to confirm that the misconception is in-universe, as there are seemingly Christian families right after the Rapture takes place that are taken by the Antichrist gestapo.
    • This probably stems from their definition of "Christian" as being "those who believe like us" or somesuch.
  • Bilingual Bonus: The motto of One Nation Earth, "Vulgus Vult Decipi" is Latin for "People Want to be Deceived".
  • Blessed with Suck: The ones who have taken the Mark of the Beast receive limited telepathic and telekinetic powers, all for the eternal cost of being sent to the Lake of Fire. In addition, Willie is able to walk, Cindy is able to see, and the one-armed man (Evan) in Tribulation gains his other arm back.
  • Bus Full of Innocents: In Revelation, Thorold Stone investigates a bomb explosion that killed a busful of schoolchildren, believing it to be the work of the Haters, but it turns out to be an inside job by O.N.E. agents.
  • Captain Ersatz: The first film basically began as a knock-off of the Left Behind series; here, Franco Macalousso is this for Nicolae Carpathia.
  • Caught Up in the Rapture: What kicks off the plot of the whole series.
  • Can't Stop the Signal: Two people in Revelation (Willie and Cindy) who have taken the Mark of the Beast try to stop the Willie's Wonder Buster virus program from uploading by pulling out the disk from the computer and even shooting the computer it's uploading on, all to no avail as it miraculously continues to boot up.
  • Car Cushion: In Tribulation, the Psychic-Assisted Suicide victim throws himself out a window and lands on a parked car.
  • Cassandra Truth: In Tribulation, when Jason is being manipulated by future One Nation Earth agents who want to prevent him from spreading the truth before the world is ready for it, neither Jason's brother-in-law Tom nor Tom's wife Susan are willing to believe him due to their past dealings with him that lead to their belief that Jason is mentally unstable; however, Tom's sister Eileen somehow senses that the agent has been in Jason's hospital room and is more willing to believe him, though Tom doesn't believe his sister due to her being a born-again Christian who takes the Bible very literally.
  • Chekhov's Gun: The cup that Stone knocks over in the Haters hideout in Revelation ends up being what Willie trips over later on when he gains physical mobility, allowing for Helen to escape.
  • Christianity Is Catholic: Averted. In the first film, there is a Catholic bishop who along with a Jewish rabbi sings the praises of Franco Macalousso emerging as the One-World Leader and the Jews' "true Messiah".
  • Conspiracy Theorist: Jason is one in Tribulation, but his crackpot theories make convincing his family members that shadowy men drove him to throw himself out a window rather difficult. His amusing scientific discovery about how monkeys on two different sides of a volcanic island end up engaging in the same activity of washing their bananas in the sea ends up becoming the basis for the Assimilation Plot during the Tribulation.
  • Crapsack World: What the world during the Tribulation slowly devolves into in the series with One Nation Earth's Assimilation Plot taking place.
  • Cyberspace: The Day Of Wonders takes place within a virtual reality program, mostly consisting of a white room with a Digital Avatar of the Antichrist in it to offer whoever enters it the Mark of the Beast, with the alternative being death, usually by decapitation.
  • Deal with the Devil: Accepting the Mark of the Beast is played out like this, with the benefits of its recipients experiencing miracles such as Cindy receiving her sight, Willie being able to walk, and Evan (the one-armed man in the hospital in Tribulation) receiving his right arm again. There's also the Blessed with Suck element of having limited telepathic and telekinetic powers, as featured in Tribulation.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: O.N.E. being an acronym for One Nation Earth.
  • Digital Avatar: Macalousso has one in the Day of Wonders program, for convincing people who enter the program to take the Mark of the Beast. In essence, he is fulfilling what the Book of Revelation says about "the image of the beast", that it "should both speak, and cause as many as wouldn’t worship the image of the beast to be killed."
  • Disabled Snarker: Paraplegic Willie and blind Cindy in Revelation.
  • Do Not Adjust Your Set: The Haters have technology that lets them hack into the One Nation Earth's network and broadcast messages, mostly prerecorded material from famous televangelists such as T.D. Jakes and Jack Van Impe that warn about the end times.
  • Don't Create a Martyr: Defense attorney Mitch Kendrick in Judgment uses this to suggest changing the focus of the Helen Hannah trial from Hannah herself to God.
  • Doomed Appointment: Of a sort in Tribulation, when Tom promises he would go with his sister Eileen to her church next Sunday night to hear what God has to say. It's only doomed because Tom gets into a car accident that puts him in a coma and Eileen is eventually Caught Up in the Rapture; however, near the end, Tom does visit the now-deserted church that Eileen attended, ready to hear what God has to say because he now believes in Him.
  • The Dragon: Len Parker plays this in Apocalypse and Revelation.
  • Easy Evangelism: Not to Christianity, but rather to Macalousso's one-world religion. He immediately takes credit for the Rapture (claiming that he had to get rid of certain people for the sake of the world) and declares himself God. Even though it sounds like he has a bad case of Jerusalem Syndrome, just about everybody takes him at his word.
  • Empty Piles of Clothing: More like empty piles of neatly folded clothing, as opposed to the disheveled heaps in Left Behind.
  • Engineered Public Confession: Helen Hannah in Tribulation gets Franco Macalousso through his Digital Avatar to confess what he plans to do with the people he's swayed with the Mark of the Beast and has transmitted the recorded video file to the Haters' hideout so they could broadcast it to the public via pirated transmission.
  • Evil Empire: One Nation Earth.
  • Evil Is Hammy: And how.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Len Parker in Revelation goes into deep-voice mode while speaking like he was demon-possessed, which he most likely is.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Willie and Cindy in Revelation, both as a result of taking the Mark of the Beast.
  • Fake Kill Scare: Helen (supposedly) dies in the Day of Wonders program in Tribulation, but is later shown to be spared from death by the Antichrist himself in Judgment.
    • Also from Tribulation: Jason makes a run for it when he thinks that the One Nation Earth agent (secretly a mole) is shooting all his Christian friends and family in the hideout, but as it turns out is really firing blanks.
    • Another fake kill scare takes place in Revelation, as a Christian girl whose mother hears she was permanently put out of her misery (so to speak) shows up alive near the end with her mother about to be put into the furnace along with ex-police officer Thorold Stone.
  • The Final Temptation: In Revelation, the Antichrist Franco Macalousso through his Digital Avatar tempts Thorold Stone with the promise of being reunited with his wife and daughter in exchange for accepting Macalousso as the Messiah and taking the Mark of the Beast. Stone ultimately refuses to accept, as he knows where his wife and daughter really are.
  • For Your Own Good: A father turns his Christian son over to the O.N.E. authorities in Revelation claiming he is doing this because he loves his son.
  • Frank's 2000-Inch TV: In the first film, electronic billboards displaying video feeds from WNN made their debut during the battle of Armageddon and continue to be used after Franco Macalousso, the series' Antichrist, makes his public announcement of being God made manifest in the flesh.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Subverted with Cindy of Revelation. By her own admission, she became a vegetarian not because she loved animals, but because she hated plants.
  • The Fundamentalist: Those who believe in Macalousso being God incarnate and that his teachings are the truth are portrayed as falling into this trope more easily than the Christians that they persecute as being "Haters".
  • Fun with Acronyms: One Nation Earth (O.N.E.)
  • Give Me a Sign: Voiced by Thorold Stone in Revelation when he isn't convinced that there is a God other than self-proclaimed Messiah Macalousso, whom he doesn't believe is God either. He later gets his sign from the real true God when he and several other Christians get sent into the furnace and are supernaturally protected from the flames (a reference to Shadrach, Meshach and Abednago in The Bible).
  • God Help Us All: Said by the President of the United States in the first film in a State of the Union address when a nuclear strike against the nation takes place.
  • Hollywood Atheist: Thorold Stone in Revelation, who became one after he saw his mother pass away from cancer when he was young. His atheism does get tested when his wife and daughter mysteriously disappear, and eventually he becomes a believer when he meets with Macalousso's Digital Avatar in the Day of Wonders program and rejects the idea that Macalousso is the Messiah.
  • Hollywood Hacking: Attempted with Willie in Revelation as he uses a code-cracking program to hack into the Day of Wonders program to see what it contains before it goes live.
  • Illegal Religion: Christianity is illegal to practice, as O.N.E. actively hunts down all who practice that religion.
  • Incessant Music Madness: The singing of "Amazing Grace" at the end of Revelation by the group of Haters in the furnace almost becomes this when Willie and Cindy are frantically searching for the Willie's Wonder Buster virus program disk and try to stop the program from uploading, all to no avail, while Parker has the furnace heat jacked up to the max to stop the singing until he decides to go into the room himself, only to be baked to a crisp. All the while, more people end up singing until it seems like Willie and Cindy are holding their ears, not wanting to hear it.
  • Inconvenient Summons: The Rapture itself could be considered this, as Christians are pulled out of whatever they were doing at that moment to be with the Lord, and in certain cases inadvertently putting other people into danger, as shown in various TV news clips during the day that it happens in Apocalypse.
  • Invisible to Normals: In Tribulation, the O.N.E. psychic agent who torments Jason in the hospital can only be seen by Jason himself. Tom and Susan are unable to see him, but Eileen reacts as if she could sense a presence that doesn't belong in the room.
  • Irritation Is the Sincerest Form of Flattery: In the opening scene of Tribulation, young Calvin imitates young Tom until Tom talks about Calvin having to go to the bathroom, which gets Calvin to stop when he finds himself repeating what Tom said.
  • It Won't Turn Off: Willie and Cindy in Revelation try their best to stop the Willie's Wonder Buster virus program from uploading onto the computer, to no avail.
  • I Will Find You:
    • Thorold in Revelation loses his wife and daughter in the Rapture and will do anything to get them back, eventually realizing that he will have to put his faith in Jesus Christ to see them again.
    • In Tribulation, Tom is separated from his wife Susan when he was in a coma from the automobile accident and spends much of the movie looking for her. He does find her among a group of persecuted Christians, thankfully.
  • Janitor Impersonation Infiltration: Thorold Stone is sent as this to ONE headquarters with the goal of preventing the "Day of Wonders". However, the mission changes when Willie (who Thorold is unaware had not long before taken the Mark of the Beast) has him put the goggles on to experience the Day of Wonders.
  • Join or Die: What the people in the Tribulation period are confronted with when they meet Macalousso's Digital Avatar in the Day of Wonders program...either take the Mark of the Beast and join his side, or die by whatever virtual means the program has in store for you (usually decapitation).
  • Just in Time: Stone's virtual beheading in Revelation is interrupted by Helen coming to cut the power on the VR goggles Stone was wearing just as the guillotine blade falls.
  • Kangaroo Court: Helen's trial in Judgment takes place in this as her defense attorney Mitch Kendrick is given a script of the trial that he must follow so that Helen can be convicted.
  • Kick the Dog: After taking the Mark of the Beast, the two former neutral good guys change to villains instantly, and one [Spino] actually shoots his own puppy. Just because.
  • Lured into a Trap: The O.N.E. agents in Tribulation are misdirected to what they think is the Haters' hideout, and start shooting up the place, only to find out that it was rigged with explosives. Cue the Oh, Crap!.
  • Magic from Technology: In Revelation, the Day of Wonders virtual reality program is so real it can hurt and even kill people who enter a lethal snake bite in the program also becomes a lethal snake bite in reality. Willie, when he first entered the Day of Wonders program after it was hacked, ran his virtual finger on a guillotine blade in the program and ended up cutting his finger in reality.
    • It's possible that it may not be the programming of the Day of Wonders that causes it to be that real, but actually the power of the Antichrist working within the program itself.
  • Magic Music: In Revelation, the Haters sing "Amazing Grace" while O.N.E. agents attempted to incinerate them...and they survived the flames while they continue singing, protected by God.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Victoria Thorne, toward Mitch in Judgment.
  • Man on Fire: In Revelation, Macalousso's right-hand man Len Parker becomes this when he sees that God has supernaturally protected the believers who were put into the incinerator and decides that he will deal with them himself.
  • Mark of the Beast: This particular variation coming from being exposed to the Day of Wonders virtual reality program.
  • Meaningful Name: Victoria Thorne, which makes you wonder how she ever managed to get to the top of her profession.
  • Meat Versus Veggies: In Revelation, Willie, a carnivore, and Cindy, a blind vegetarian, have a brief spat over this issue.
  • The Mole: An O.N.E. officer who infiltrates a Christian hideout in Tribulation and threatens to kill everyone in it ends up firing blanks and revealing himself to be on their side.
  • Neutral No Longer: Helen's defense attorney Mitch Kendrick in Judgment hides behind a fake Mark of the Beast because he is unsure of whether to put his faith in Macalousso or Jesus Christ. However, near the end during the court proceedings, Mitch ends up becoming a believer, which causes him to be killed by his ex-lover and prosecutor Victoria Thorne.
  • No Delays for the Wicked: After the Rapture, Christianity is completely outlawed and a one-world government is instated within a week. Apparently, the Antichrist runs on Cartoonland Time.
    • Probably to underscore how supernaturally Crazy-Prepared the Antichrist and his forces are in taking over the world once the Rapture takes place. In Tribulation, Macalousso's followers were seen already at work toward this end by testing out their psychic powers.
  • Normally, I Would Be Dead Now: In Revelation, Jake Goss, a minor member of the "Haters", is shot in the back by Willie (shortly after he and Cindy are revealed to have taken the Mark of the Beast); which under normal circumstances could be expected to, if not have killed him, certainly have paralyzed him. Jake is fine by the next film.
  • Not Disabled In VR: Virtual reality technology is being developed, as demonstrated to Thorold Stone by Willie, a paraplegic computer whiz. The Antichrist offers a form of the tech that makes the virtual real, letting the blind see in reality and letting Willie walk again if they turn to his side.
  • Not So Different: Macalousso's claim to Helen in Tribulation that he is just like God. Helen refutes it by saying God loved the world and died for it, whereas the Devil wants people to die for him.
  • Off with His Head!: Those who refuse to take the Mark of the Beast when inside the Day of Wonders virtual reality program are subject to a virtual beheading, or in some cases another form of death like a lethal snake bite, which causes the victim to die in reality.
  • Oh, Crap!: The reaction of the O.N.E. agents in Tribulation when they find out that they have accidentally set off explosives.
  • One World Order: One Nation Earth is in control of all the Earth throughout, and has been shown to be rather oppressive to both Christians and the undecided.
  • Only Sane Man: In Tribulation, Tom says something along the lines of this when he is confronted by his brother Calvin, who has taken the Mark of the Beast.
    Tom: I'm the one with the brain injury, but I'm beginning to think the rest of the world is insane.
  • Ouija Board: Jason uses what is called a Tabarrok Board in Tribulation in order to uncover some things. Two answers he gets are Genesis 11:6 and "I AM".
  • Path of Inspiration: Macalousso's Religion of Evil masquerades as this, having a Secret Circle of Secrets working in the shadows.
  • Pay Phone: They still exist in the Tribulation, but as seen in the third film, they have handprint scanners for identifying who the user is in order for the transaction to go through. Alternately, though, they could be free phone call booths and the handprint scanner is only there to prevent unauthorized use by anyone who doesn't bear the Mark of the Beast.
  • Percussive Pickpocket: In Tribulation Tom disguises stealing a phone out of somebody's pocket with this, and then conveniently distracts his victim by pointing to a passing jogger, saying that he noticed that the jogger doesn't have "the mark".
  • Place of Protection: In Tribulation, Tom is chased through a hospital by a One Nation Earth agent who uses his mind powers to close all doors in the hallway so his prey cannot escape — all except for one room that Tom enters, which turns out to be a chapel which provides for him a means of escape.
  • Poe's Law: Margot Kidder signed on, thinking it was a parody of Christian Apocalypse stories.
  • Potty Failure: Young Calvin in Tribulation wets his pants while he and Tom wait for Eileen to finish her prayer to God about the tree she carved their names into. Years later, Tom keeps bringing it up, and Eileen doesn't even remember whether it happened or not (or so she says).
  • Psychic-Assisted Suicide: A man under the mind control of future One Nation Earth agents in Tribulation is driven to throw himself out of the window of a high-rise apartment building after Tom prevents him from killing his wife, who is a Christian.
    • The same thing almost happens at the same time with Jason, except that he only falls out of a two-story house window.
  • Red Herring: Thorold Stone and his partner in Revelation are misdirected to a hideout of persecuted Christians who are blamed for the bombing of a school bus, when the job was really done by inside One Nation Earth agents under the employ of Len Parker in order to get the stolen Day of Wonders disk from the Christian cell group.
  • Religion Is Right: More to the point, pre-millennialism pre-Tribulation Rapture Christianity is the only religion that is right.
  • La Résistance: The Haters, which is One Nation Earth's name for underground groups of persecuted Christians during the Tribulation.
  • Rip Van Winkle: Tom in Tribulation wakes up several months into the Tribulation period after being in an automobile accident, complete with Time-Passage Beard.
  • Say Your Prayers:
    • Played with in Tribulation: As Helen says I Surrender, Suckers by allowing herself to be captured by One Nation Earth security forces, a tape of Jack Van Impe leading people in a prayer of salvation plays on the pirated airwaves right before her capture.
    • Also in Tribulation, when Tom and the group of Haters have her hideout infiltrated by a O.N.E. officer ready to shoot them dead, Tom simply thanks God for saving his soul before the officer fires a shot. Fortunately, the officer turns out to be a mole working for the Haters, firing only blanks.
  • Second Coming: It's all about Jesus' return.
  • Shoe Phone: Helen wears a contact lens camera in Tribulation so she can intentionally be captured and enter the Day of Wonders program to expose Macalousso as being the Antichrist.
  • Sigil Spam: The One Nation Earth logo, which is based on the Eye of Providence pyramid design of the Great Seal of the United States, tends to pop up everywhere during the Tribulation.
  • Slave Brand: The Mark of the Beast resembles this in Revelation and Tribulation, while in Judgment it is a coin-sized tattoo.
  • Spit Take: Tom in Tribulation when he tries to drink bad coffee at the hospital.
  • Stock Footage: The first film uses a lot of it. Especially jarring are the scenes where the film's own footage of news reports or broadcasted speeches from the Antichrist are pasted into stock footage of large crowds watching big screens in public, since the footage quality drastically differs.
  • Sweetie Graffiti: A non-romantic family love example appears in Tribulation, when young Eileen carves her name and those of her brothers Tom and Calvin into a tree and then afterwards prays to God for the tree to continue standing as a landmark for when any of them would lose their way. Later on, adult Tom, during the time of the Tribulation, would find the tree still standing with their names still etched in it, and there meets up with his brother-in-law Jason, who is also on the run from One Nation Earth.
  • Take Over the World
  • Taking the Bullet: One of the Haters, Jake, sacrifices himself to block a bullet Willie fires at his half-sister Helen after he receives the Mark of the Beast and ditches the wheelchair in Revelation. Her protector, though, gets better.
  • Taking You with Me: The Devil in the form of Antichrist Franco Macalousso pretty much knows he's doomed for the Lake of Fire, and so decides to take as many souls with him in the Tribulation through the Mark of the Beast.
  • Talking to Himself: In-universe example, Len Parker voices Stone's wife and daughter through a walkie-talkie in order to deceive Stone into believing he has them in his custody. He even tells "them" to be quiet.
  • Techno Wizard: Willie Spino, the paraplegic computer programmer in Revelation, is made out to be this, as he is able to make gadgets that can read human DNA through solid concrete walls. His virtual reality programs are so real that they are totally indistinguishable from reality, with the exception that you can't hurt yourself in them. Someone, however, decided to go a step further to make the Day of Wonders become real enough to hurt and kill people.
  • Thanatos Gambit: Helen allowing herself to be captured by the One Nation Earth forces so she could enter the Day of Wonders and expose its truth by wearing a contact lens camera. The Antichrist, however, spares her from death.
  • Time-Passage Beard: In Tribulation, Tom wakes up with a beard a few years into the Tribulation after being in a coma from a car accident.
  • Tower of Babel: A model of the tower is used by future One Nation Earth agents preparing for the coming one-world order and its Religion of Evil in Tribulation. It's also on the cover of Macalousso's book Babel Becomes One.
  • 20 Minutes into the Future
  • Unperson / I Have No Son!: In Tribulation, Eileen's brother Calvin claims he never had a sister, and she's even been removed from the family photos. It's likely that Calvin has been affected by the Mark of the Beast, causing him to forget her existence after she had taken up in the Rapture.
    • Earlier on, Tom finds out that a fellow police officer who he knows is a Christian, Kenny Rice, is not listed in the police department's records after the Rapture.
  • Utopia Justifies the Means: One Nation Earth's goal of world peace using the Assimilation Plot to achieve it.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Macalousso has been in the spotlight a bit longer than he has actively been the Antichrist, mostly due to his book Babel Becomes One.
  • Voice Changeling: Len Parker doing the voices of Wendy and Maggie Stone (Thorold's wife and daughter) in Revelation.
  • Waking Up Elsewhere: In Tribulation, Tom goes into a coma from an unavoidable automobile accident, and wakes up in the hospital a few years into the Tribulation and with a Time-Passage Beard.
  • White Void Room: What the Day of Wonders program takes place in. See also Cyberspace.
  • With Us or Against Us: You're either on the side of believing Macalousso is God or on the side of believing that Jesus Christ is God; There is no middle ground here!!!
  • A Wizard Did It: Macalousso's proclamation of himself being the one who not only miraculously caused all the launched nukes to disappear, but was also behind the Rapture, claiming that those who disappeared were removed because they were obstacles to the goal of achieving world peace. Makes sense, as he proclaims himself to be God.
    • Some deaths have been miraculously undone, particularly with the Haters. Maybe it's because of God's hand.
  • You Can't Thwart Stage One: Despite Thorold Stone's efforts, the Day of Wonders program still shows up in full use during the Tribulation.
  • You Have Failed Me: A deleted scene from Judgment shows Macalousso sending Thorne and the judge to an uncertain fate after failing to give him the desired verdict.
    • In Tribulation, Calvin was choked to death inside the Day of Wonders program by the Antichrist's Digital Avatar when he failed to convert his brother.
  • Your Mind Makes It Real: See also Magic from Technology in regards to the Day of Wonders program.


How well does it match the trope?
