Editorial Reviews

When Robert Caine (Kirk Douglas) sets out to build a massive nuclear plant in the Middle East, he discovers a cavern rumored to foretell the end of the world. Caine shrugs off the dire inscriptions on the cave walls...until people who oppose the plant begin dying in strange and horrifying ways. Can Caine complete his project and prove the curse to be false - or will he fall victim to the same terrible fate?

Customer Reviews

Also, it makes a failed attempt at showing off any suspenseful magic about the supernatural.
Bartok Kinski
On the plus side there is an amusing helicopter blade decapitation scene but it doesn't come close to matching THE OMEN's classic beheading.
BD Ashley
The movie actually gets a further beating on trying to be a meaningless horror / splatter film, which wants to show off uselessly.

Format: DVD
Alberto De Martino's Anglo-Italian Holocaust 2000 aka Rain of Fire aka The Chosen is another post-Omen ripoff with an ageing Hollywood star jumping on the Satanic conspiracy bandwagon, in this case Kirk Douglas as a powerful industrialist whose plans to build a controversial nuclear power plant in the Holy Land might just trigger the End of Days. Naturally, he doesn't see it that way at first, but even before he dismisses one critic by urging him to "Stop talking like a ridiculous prophet of the Apocalypse! I'm not counting on God. I'm putting my faith in nuclear energy!", you can see where this is heading even if he can't. But a few deaths courtesy of the odd celebrity victim in the supporting cast like Anthony Quayle or Virginia McKenna, one ominous computer printout, a fertile fling with Agostina Belli's photographer and a chance meeting with Romolo Valli's priest later and he's having nightmarish visions of the Apocalypse and, this being the 70s when you had more chance of getting Sylvia Kristel to keep her clothes on in a film than Kirk, we're having nightmarish full-frontal visions of Douglas running naked through the desert as he gradually comes to believe that his proposed seven-towered nuclear plant might just be the seven-head Beast of the Book of Revelations and that his unborn child might just be AntiChrist (a common ailment with ageing movie stars in the 70s) while screaming "We're not seven-headed monsters bringing about the Apocalypse!" at his corporate minions.Read more ›

The end is near! Citizens protest! Worldwide panic spreads across the globe! A nuclear holocaust threatens us all! The monstrous beast will rise from the ocean to consume all life! Earth will become a scorched wasteland!

Who ought to care about why the hell this movie punctuates so much on the Apocalypse? The Italians certainly had been ashamed of making this film in the first place! Even our priests who run the churches would be in for a mass uproar about the falsity this delivers. But heck, this is the movies!

Words cannot describe this sordid, terrible drama, acting more of a drunken Shakespearean play about nuclear fear than anything else. A poor planning in developing a good story and lousy writing makes this the perfect glass of sour milk. One of our best well-known movie stars, Kirk Douglas, has a few embarrassing performances, one of which is when he stands out naked in front of visions of rising monsters from the ocean. Also, it makes a failed attempt at showing off any suspenseful magic about the supernatural. Either it is Douglas who thinks the Great Flood has come, or just a coincidence of Mother Nature rising the ocean tide.

The movie actually gets a further beating on trying to be a meaningless horror / splatter film, which wants to show off uselessly. HOLOCAUST 2000 is good if you want to see Kirk Douglas star in a movie so horrifying in its pitiful execution and directing skills. What does this movie want to be when it fouls up? A DOOMSDAY BOMB!

This is an interesting story of the apocalypse. Mr. Douglas's acting is great, as usual, and the story makes you think about the book of Relevations. This film has a different ending than the one seen in the movie theatres. It's a wonderful story.

Amongst the many revered names in Italian cult cinema, very few are going to remember Alberto De Martino as one of the masters of his craft. A career "hack" that piggy-backed on any genre that exploded in Italy (from peplum to "Exorcist" rip-offs), Martino was certified copycat through and through. His two most famous films were probably "The Antichrist" (his "Exorcist" rip) and this odd-ball take off of "The Omen".

Kirk Douglas plays a tycoon looking to bring nuclear energy to the Middle East and finds out he plays an important role in the advent of the antichrist. Along the way, he has insane dreams of being molested by anti-nuclear activists, watches a computer detect pure evil, and boffs a much younger women across the screen.

It's not a good movie, but it's gleefully insane and surprisingly violent; a scene with a helicopter decapitation and a riot in a sanitarium are the gooey highlights. I liked this one quite a bit, especially to see all the dignified people slumming it in this ridiculous story.

Kirk Douglas is Robert Caine, a wealthy and powerful man who is in the process of creating a powerful nuclear reactor. Unfortunately for him, and the world, sinister forces appear to be at work behind the scenes, propelling the world toward Armageddon. This film obviously takes it's cues from The Omen (Two-Disc Collector's Edition), but in the end it's not up to that classic film's level. Kirk Douglas gives a decent performance, but he does get a bit manic as the film goes on. Simon Ward is Angel Caine, his ever-present and faithful son. Hats off to Ward for his performance. He far outshines Douglas. There is a lack of subtlety here as the anti-nuclear message is driven home a tad too vehemently and some of the performances shade over into the territory of parody. However, Ennio Morricone's score goes a long way toward smoothing out the rough patches. Previously known as Holocaust 2000 and The Chosen, Rain of Fire is basically a somewhat clunky imitation, but it does have it's charms.
