THE ALMIGHTY (Supernatural Thriller) Almighty God bestows a faithless man, Oscar Renfro, with
the ability to tear demons from the possessed. With Oscar’s world crumbling around him, Satan and his
dark legions attack, hell-bent on stealing his divine power.
(Synopsis) Diagnosed with schizophrenia as a child, OSCAR RENFRO (30’s), has been taking medication ever since to stop his dark hallucinations. His medication no longer effective, Oscar’s life becomes a nightmare.
Oscar is confronted by his wife; he sends his wife and son away fearing for their safety.
Oscar is soon visited by MR. RICHARDS (60), a homeless man possessed by a very powerful force. Oscar is told that he must embrace the gift that God has given him and use it to reveal the evil that walks amongst mankind. Mr. Richards also tells Oscar that he is a MESSENGER from God and was sent to help build him up to face evil.
At this moment, the demons realize that Oscar can not only see it, but can also rip it from its human host. Oscar realizes that it is through his touch that the demons are torn from the possessed.
the MESSENGER, finds Oscar and warns him about Lucifer. He tells Oscar that Lucifer will come at the next sunrise to steal his gift. And that if Lucifer takes his gift, it will give him the power to rip human souls directly from the body. Lucifer will destroy all of mankind and build his dark forces on Earth to mount an attack on heaven. The Messenger tells Oscar that God will wield him if embraces his gift and has faith in him. He also tells Oscar that now that the demons are aware of his power they will come for him at every opportunity; possessing anyone to get at him. While on the transit bus, Oscar is watched by a demon possessed man.
Taking refuge, Oscar goes to his best friend Cole’s apartment. The Messenger sheds light on what Oscar must do, what his plan should be to fight off the evil that is about to fall upon him. Oscar learns that demons were the cause of the death of his father many years ago. The Messenger tells Oscar that this is his burden and that God’s messages have always been carried on the backs of men; men who had been given a gift that would allow them to do so. He also teaches Oscar how to wield heaven’s fire to destroy evil. He also tells Oscar that if he does not have faith in what God has put into motion, when he uses heaven’s fire it will also destroy him.
The Messenger explains to Oscar that he can save Cole by pulling the demon from him and destroying it with heaven’s. Oscar realizes that if he doesn’t accept his gift and faith more innocent will end up suffering because of him.
Seperated from the Messenger and Cole, Oscar is interrogator by a police detective that is possessed by a demon. He tries to turn Oscar against God, first taunting about the things they’ll do to his wife and then by taking on the form of his father and encouraging him to kill himself. Meanwhile, Lucifer confronts the Messenger and Cole in the cell.
Oscar finds the Messenger badly wounded in the cell. He carries the Messenger to the safety.
Oscar’s wife, Tracy, returns home. While there, a demon attacks and prepares her body for possession by Lucifer.
On the run from the law, the Messenger lets Oscar know that Lucifer is going after his wife and son. In an attempt to keep the Messenger alive, Cole rushes to the hospital emergency room. Cole stays with the Messenger while Oscar races home to save his family.
As the Messenger dies on the table, Cole offers himself up to the dying Messenger. The spirit of the Messenger takes over Cole and he becomes the new vessel. He is the new Messenger.
Oscar uses his gift to exorcise the demon from her body. Oscar takes his wife and son and seeks safety. While Oscar drives down the coast, his son driven by evil, attacks him. This causes Oscar to crash near the Santa Monica Pier. As a crowd forms, he leaves his wife and son inside the car as he evades the oncoming police. Every officer in the city seems to bare down on the beach and the pier, hunting for Oscar. Cole finds Oscar on the pier and tells him that he is ready to face evil. The police close in. Evil attracted by Oscar, rushes through the city, possessing all in its path.
Lucifer steals the body of Tracy, condemning it forever and then reveals himself to Oscar on the pier. Lucifer appears behind Oscar and tempts him, offering him a way out of the burden God has given.
Enraged, Oscar attacks Lucifer while Cole takes on the demons. Oscar uses his gift to fight Lucifer but soon realizes that he cannot beat him. He surrenders, realizing that only God can save him and bring his wife back. Tracy, inhabited by Lucifer, jams her hand into Oscar’s gut. A blinding fireball of light unleashes from Oscar’s abdomen as he loses consciousness; God’s light ruptures from him. Tracy’s body, unable to harness the full power of God, tears apart. Cole relinquishes his attack against the demons and allows them to destroy him. As Cole’s body is decimated, the Messenger’s spirit leaves his body; releasing a blast of energy that consumes the pier.
Oscar survives; Lucifer and the demons no longer a threat. Oscar searches the beach for his wife and son. He finds his son, unharmed, laying in the sand. Unable to find to Tracy, he frantically runs into the ocean. He sees her floating face down in the water. He pulls her from the ocean. No life in her. Defeated, he looks to the sky, shouts out in anger at God. Violently, Tracy gasps for air. She’s alive. Oscar embraces her. Lucifer and his demons defeated, Oscar reunites with his family.
