A research team finds a mysterious cylinder in a deserted church. If opened, it could mean the end of the world.

John Carpenter's 1987 film was his first made under a deal with production company Alive Pictures, which gave him just $3 million per movie but complete creative control. The result is riveting religious horror as interrogated through a scientific lens, starring Donald Pleasance (HALLOWEEN) as a Catholic priest who joins forces with quantum physicist Victor Wong (BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA) to prevent the arrival of a Satanic “Anti-God.”

One of Carpetner's most intellectually stimulating stories pairs with incredible practical effects and an inspired synthesizer score to deliever a mid-career high point from the horror master.
