    Do Christians watch this and actually buy into the mark of the beast? Well ont his one the mark of the best is huge giant disfigure mark in the middle of their faces and makes everyone of them look ugly and disfigured.

    Are you sure this is what the bible says? Id shoot myself and die before getting that ugly thing on me are you kidding?Maybe this is a spoof of Revelations?

    It does look like a bit of a spoof, but then sometimes people unintentionally make a mockery of themselves without even realising it

    Never heard of it before, but I found more information on its IMDb page: New World Order: The End Has Come (2013) - IMDb

    Although there is a review on there which is somewhat humorous to read:

    It's not on Netflix; it's on Amazon Prime. Since I'm dog-sitting for my brother this weekend - and they have Amazon Prime - I'll give it a watch this morning just for the heck of it. I'll pretend I'm Leonard Pinth Garnell hosting "Bad Cinema."

    "There... That wasn't so good now, was it?"

    Please keep in mind that these kinds of 'shows' are produced to entice a specific audience; mostly the young and foolish, because Netflix want to get people paying for their services early in life, and hopefully to continue doing so for many years. These dark fantasies are NOT being turned into theater for any sort of theological or ideological reasons. It's all about the money.

    I haven't seen it, but I wonder if you would mind telling me if it was better than Sharknado?

    People tend to hate money if they dont have any

    ETA of course they dont actually "hate" it.

    That is just a cover word for various poses.

    No, they really don't. That's just what people who have a lot of money and know they don't really deserve it tell themselves when someone else points out that we live in a culture that is controlled by greed.

    Sounds like what people controlled by jealousy
    would think up to put fault anywhere but on
    their own shoulders.

    Well, don't ask me why, but I went ahead and watched it this morning. It was truly awful. It was so bad that I don't even think MST3K could salvage it (although it would be fun to try).

    The movie is somewhat vague about world events, although they showed news items where Iran and Syria figured prominently. At some point (and it's not clear how), Iran ruled all of Europe, but was defeated by "Lord Aldo DeLuca," who was assassinated and somehow resurrected, apparently by Satan.

    The story centers around two college-age women who were shown in an early scene of them sitting in church, but not paying attention and instead playing with their cellphone as one shows the other a pic of her new hot boyfriend. It then jumps ahead three years, ostensibly after the Rapture - and they had not been taken - although they knew many had been. Now they were living under the New World Order.

    Of course, they express regret that they "didn't listen" and didn't pay attention to the warnings - and now they were really in trouble. Everyone in their society was being forced to take the Mark of Satan, and the two main characters are scared to death. At the end, they're being rounded up and facing one last chance to either take the mark or be executed.

    The Supreme Chancellor also appears in the film, and he looks like a cross between a whacked-out rock star and a South American drug lord. And he seems to really enjoy opera. Satan loves opera. Who would have figured on that? (I don't believe in Satan, but someone once told me that Satan invented disco, a view I found quite compelling.)

    I was surprised that this was actually on Amazon Prime. At least I didn't have to pay to watch it. It was, overall, pretty cheesy - the acting, storyline. I won't say it was a parody; it didn't have quite that feel. Although it could easily become a parody.
