Being this is the 666th post published on this blog at 6:12 AM totally coincidentally on 6/6/2020, it seems timely to dig into movies with ‘666’ in the title.
Airplanes and 666? That’s Flight 666, available for streaming on Amazon Prime as of this writing. I’ve tried to watch this movie before, but giving it one more try. Like the box art, at least.
Not intended to be a satanic interlude, but for horror fans like myself, this offers a one time historical not so coincidental chance to explore the “number of the beast” in movie titles.
Plenty of others are out there parsing the meaning of Revelation 13:18, but I’m going to carefully sidestep the religious aspects of this number.
By assigning 666 to the “number of the beast,” the author of Revelation is warning Christians to beware of Satan’s “cheap imitation of Christ,” says Hamilton. “That’s the best Satan can do, one short of perfection.”What’s the Secret Behind the Number 666? | HowStuffWorks
That article also points out that some consider ‘777’ as a number of Christ. Personally, I see that as a jackpot on a slot machine, but hey, it’s all good.
When I think of 666, besides the obvious biblical and religious reference, the famous heavy metal song from Iron Maiden springs to mind:
And no, COVID-19 has nothing to do with 666, that’s debunked here.

Seems like this might be a predominantly low budget movie list. If and when they are ever watched, I’ll link up the titles to the reviews. Might be a timely October viewing challenge some year in the future to run as many of them down and watch as possible.
Do you have a favorite full length movie with 666 in the title to mention? Or just one missed above? Feel free to mention in the comments. Not looking to add shorts, documentaries or anything that’s not a feature-length film.
