Zero Hour: Strike

It's a race against time for Hank Galliston after his wife, Laila, is abducted by the international terrorist "White Vincent". As the publisher of a paranormal enthusiast magazine, Modern Skeptic, Hank has spent his career debunking myths and investigating conspiracies. Now, seemingly out of nowhere, he is thrust into the middle of one of the biggest conspiracies in human history, sparked by his wife's discovery of an antique clock at a Brooklyn flea market -- a clock that possesses much more than the power to tell time. With help from FBI Agent Rebecca "Beck" Riley and his two young magazine staffers, Rachel and Arron, they set out on a journey to find Laila, but soon find their mission is much bigger than just saving one woman.

Another priest comes in and asks them to leave. He tells the other priest “the prophecies are true. The end times are here”. Outside, Nazi soldiers are shown marching down the street, with crowds cheering them on. The two priests walk down the street discussing about the end of times. One priest is skeptical and mentions how in every century the end of times has been prophesied and every time the prophecies have been wrong. The other counters by saying that, in none of the centuries has the “devil risen”; possibly referring to Hitler. ..
