Opening narration[edit]

Plot[edit]

Father Anton Jonascu (Len Cariou) begins to have strange hallucinations — one moment he sees perfectly ordinary-looking people, the next they have changed into terrifying demon creatures. He visits Dr. Pallas (Chris Sarandon), and a medical scan reveals an inoperable brain-tumour that seems to be the cause of his hallucinations.

Jonascu continues to see the creatures, and finally collapses during a sermon. He returns to the doctor and explains his predicament further. Dr. Pallas injects him with a drug that causes temporary paralysis and explains that he wants to introduce Jonascu to some friends. Pallas opens a door and two of the demon creatures enter... and Pallas also reveals himself as one of them.

After Jonascu has calmed down, Pallas and his associates explain that they are not demons, but alien creatures and that all Earth religions are actually based on teachings from their world. They are here to give the power of healing to humanity, but are unable to reveal themselves because their appearance would terrify humans. One of the aliens gives her life to pass on the gift of healing to Jonascu — however Jonascu is asked not to reveal the aliens' presence or the origin of his gift.

Jonascu heals a girl who was badly injured in an accident, and the press finds out making him an instant celebrity. He tries to explain the situation to his skeptical colleague Father Royce (Justin Louis). After a few days, the aliens request that Jonascu call a worldwide press conference to reveal themselves, and they also tell him that he has a betrayer close to him, Father Royce.

Father Royce overhears the aliens plotting to destroy the atmosphere and discussing how to use Jonascu; but they catch and kill him.

Jonascu finds Royce's body, but is stopped from calling the police by Pallas. Pallas explains that he was not there when Royce died and could not help him... and that he died from an embolism, the same cause of death of another person involved with the aliens.

Jonascu goes to the morgue where Royce's body is kept and uses his healing ability to revive Royce. He then goes to the press conference with Royce to stop the Aliens. Father Jonascu dies after a fight ensues between him and Pallas leaving Royce as the sole human survivor of the power.
