Plot

This indie film represents everything that is evil and impure in our human race and it follows the reporter, played by Groben as he has a discussion with the Antichrist. The meeting is broadcast all over the world, during the final year of the Great Tribulation.

As you can see in the trailer, the movie starts as the famous interviewer talks to the person who is said to be the Evil in the world. He confronts him as the world is almost coming to an end. Even though the film starts as the reporter almost blaming the protagonist for leaving everyone who doesn’t want to wear his mark, to die, it soon continues as an interview talking about more important subjects and portrays the world as it is.

In this piece, you can see the Antichrist talking about many tragedies that have happened around the world, including mass shootings, 9/11, and even death squads. Throughout the film, you will notice that the answers the main protagonist gives are not something that the reporter expects, but the tension is high and the dialogue is more than fluid.

Just like the film, after you watch it you will be left with some great questions about mankind, the current state of the world, and what we can do to change it. It is a constantly unpredictable piece that goes from a deadly serious topic to cynical, and somewhat satirical, and sometimes even funny discussion.
