The Seventh Sign is a 1988 film written by Clifford and Ellen Green and directed by Carl Schultz.


Signs of the apocalypse are appearing, along with a mysterious wanderer. Father Lucci (played by Peter Friedman) is the Vatican official investigating them. He dismisses the occurrences as natural, but Abby Quinn, a young American woman (played by Demi Moore), believes that they are real.

In the film, Jürgen Prochnow portrays Jesus' return to Earth in the year 1988 to judge humanity. The final judgment is averted by an act of faith that prevents the final sign of the apocalypse from occurring. In the film, through a flashback, Prochnow also portrays the original Jesus on the eve of his crucifixion. Father Lucci is revealed to be Cartaphilus, a Roman Centurion and Pilate's porter who struck Jesus before his death and was sentenced to wander the Earth until Christ returned to judge mankind. The Lucci-Cartaphilus character is a combination of the Longinus and the Wandering Jew legends. In the movie Abby, who is soon to give birth, discovers that she is actually the reborn woman some identify as Seraphia, the woman who offered Christ water during the Crucifixion but was turned away by Cartaphilus. She finds out that the prophecies lead up to the birth of her child who may not survive because there will be no more souls left for the newborns unless someone offers their own.

Tagline: The seals have been broken. The prophecies have begun. Now only one woman can halt the end of our world.
