Plot – In an abandoned church of Los Angeles, a priest discovers a huge glass case with a greenish liquid and he asks to some scientists to make researches on it. According to an old book written in Coptic language, the jar should contain an evil force: one by one, the researches are infected by the liquid and start dreaming about the Antichrist who's threating the whole humanity. While the priest prays fervently, one of the girl throws herself from the window.
