A Brilliant Thought Provoking End of Days Scenario
It disturbs me to see the negative reviews of 666-The Beast. Okay, it was filmed in 6 days- that just adds to its glory.If these actors,producers, and director were given a Hollywood budget you would see genius unfold on film. This "B" film was far better than any recent big budget horror film easily. The devil's portrayal was the best I have ever seen. The anti-Christ was eerily believable as a self centered. ambition driven, corporate master who cheats on his wife and literally kills all competition.

The character of Father Deacon Creed was amazing. The actor portrayed the priest as a an academic who, despite having taken a vow of humbleness before God, can not help but flaunt his superior knowledge of the occult whenever the devil strikes. His accent is a great one and you truly believe that he is an extremely educated and driven agent of the Vatican.

The final, climactic scene is one of the best portrayals of the devil vs. the Catholic Church since the Exorcist. The actor portraying Donald really seems to become possessed as he fights an army of Catholic agents. The scene was incredibly acted and is one of the finest climaxes I have ever seen done in a "B" film.

IN conclusion, 666-the Best is NOT the joke which others claim it is. It was a dark, well written and superbly acted horror film. The writers, actors and directors did a LOT with little time and money. The fact that it invented its own theological theory about the second coming of Christ is a testament to the brilliance behind the writing and production of one of the bets end of days films I have ever seen.

Trivia

The director was asked to write a Christian horror script that would start shooting in two weeks. The movie was supposed to be loosely related to the production company's film 666: The Child. The main character retains the name of the main character from that film. The script was written in 5 days. Pre-production (hiring crew, finding locations, casting, renting gear) was done in one week. The film was shot in 9 days. All post production (editing, sound mixing, and color correction) had to be finished in six weeks in order to meet the delivery deadline to Blockbuster (the main distribution outlet for the production company at that time). Two days before the film began shooting, the concept of making a "Christian horror film" was thrown out the window, because the company's Christian buyer wanted more family-friendly material. As a result of losing their intended Christian buyer, the Producers mandated that the sex and gore be intensified (nudity and blood were new requisites) so that the film could be sold to international distributors. The actress who was going to be cast as Sydonai was replaced because she did not want to perform a nude scene in the film.
