October 23, 1987
Father Loomis discovers a mysterious cylinder in the basement of an abandoned church. With the help of Professor Birack and a team of researchers, the object is discovered to be a vessel containing a green substance. This "anti-matter" purportedly carries the spirit of the Anti-Christ, and had been protected over the years by the now dissolved Brotherhood of Sleep, an ancient order tasked with containing the apocalyptic being. The substance subsequently begins infecting and possessing the researchers.
