Before the Left Behind
series, there was A Thief In The Night
, a 70's B-Movie that scared countless young church-goers witless.
The acting is described as "wooden" and the production quality was poor, but the film is remembered by many
chidren of the 70's and 80's as "that movie from church that scared me to death."
The film opens
with a young woman waking up to find that people all over the world have suddenly disappeared, and she soon learns that she was left behind after the Rapture. It follows her through the resulting End of Times, including the introduction of the mark of the beast
as a replacement for currency, and the world coming under the power of the Antichrist and his U.N.I.T.E. (United Nations Imperium for Total Emergency) organisation.
The film had three sequels which extended into the 1980's
, all released by Mark IV Pictures, now Russ Doughton
, who also sell a Prophecy Survival Guide
The film is available in its entirety on YouTube, in seven parts
