Bar codes and magnetic stripe encoding have nothing on RFID tags.

A great end times movie is "The Omega Man" from 1971 with Charlton Heston. For laughs, see Mimi Rogers in "The Rapture"from 1991.

Wait.... "Beware of the Blob," "Beware of the Blog?"
I'm starting to notice a tribute!

Miracle Mile from 1988 - staring Anthony Edwards


"Harry finally meets the girl of his dreams--on the last day of Earth. Harry mistakenly picked up a ringing pay phone to learn that a nuclear war had already begun. Now with a ticking clock and a rioting city deteriorating around him, Harry must guide Julie to safety. But can he save himself as lawlessness becomes the norm and terror grips every living soul in the city?"

And thus begins of season of apocalypse haunted houses. In Georgia we have such gut wrenching witnessing opportunities as Hell House (http://www.hellhouse.4t.com/) and Tribulation Trail (http://www.tribulationtrail.org/). Look em up in your area......if you dare...

You neglected to mention Aphrodite's Child's album "666"
It's very good to play in the background with a little wine over dinnner with that special someone.

This is the Revelation movie I want to see. The movie that shows the only description of god in the bible:

"And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying HOLY, HOLY, HOLY, HOLY, LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, WHICH WAS, AND IS , AND IS TO COME."

It could either be a bible movie, or the sequel to DOOM.

I don't think that I saw mention above of movie from the 1990s called "The Rapture." (The writer may have mentioned it, but my brain is like swiss cheese and I can't be sure.)

Michael Tolkin, the guy who wrote "The Player," wrote it. It's a disturbing story about the end of the world, although your serious fundamentalists would say it is not quite "Biblical" -- but neither was "The Omen").

I think it is interesting because it was created by someone who is probably not a believer, but it has a serious religious sensibility about it. (At least that's my opinion.) And it's scary.

1The Damned

They gods have deteriorated life on earth precipitously in the last 40 years, from abortion to pornography, widespread drug use and widespread casual sex. The earth's elders, hundreds and thousands of years old, are disgusted and don't care, and they have become indifferent.
The gods are paving the way for the Apocolypse.

I have it on good authority that the world ended in 1917, but no one noticed. So they ended it again in 1972, but nobody noticed it then either.
