At the end of the century, Satan visits New York in search of a bride. It's up to an ex-cop who now runs an elite security outfit to stop him.
Liv Tyler was offered the role of Christine York but backed out over contractual issues.
You'd be amazed what you'll agree to when you're on fire.
Much importance is attributed to the date being exactly 2000 years since Christ's birth. The exact year is unknown, and even the best historians admit that the Roman calendar (which was established many years after Christ's death) is probably off by more than 10 years. However, one of the clerics in the movie 'reveals' that in the movie's universe, the Gregorian calendar was actually set up by the Catholic church so as to let Satan's return occur at the turn of the millennium.
The Philippine theatrical version completely removes Christine's nightmare sequence in which Satan is seen having sex with mother and daughter. It also edits out some violent scenes such as Satan driving his fist completely through a person's body and the close-up shot of The Man's torso missing after the train wreck.
