American Vantage Media announced recently that it has acquired all U.S. rights to In The Face Of Evil: Reagan’s War in Word and Deed, a controversial look at Reagan’s victory over Communism within the context of mankind’s continual fight against evil, including the current war against Islamic Fascism. The feature-length documentary film will be released in theaters October 1, 2004, through American Vantage Media’s Non-Fiction Films distribution unit.
The film is based on Peter Schweizer’s acclaimed best-seller Reagan’s War: The Epic Story of His Forty Year Struggle and Final Triumph Over Communism. Schweizer’s book is widely credited with cementing the notion that President Reagan achieved the final victory over communism through direct confrontation with the enemy.
In The Face of Evil is a controversial look at the 20th century’s wars against totalitarianism and what it means for the United States in today’s environment. The documentary film, written by Stephen K. Bannon and Julia Jones, produced by Tim Watkins, and directed by Stephen K. Bannon, has been in the works since 2002.
“President Reagan was a man whose words and deeds were one and the same,” states Bannon. “His administration’s confrontation with totalitarianism is the blueprint for our current war against Islamic Fascism. Our film focuses on this confrontation of good versus evil.”
Says Schweizer: “The same circles who for years advised that we needed to cooperate with communism because it could not be defeated, are now telling us the same as it relates to Islamic Fascism. Reagan proved them wrong and shows us how to win this war.”
“This film is a wake up call showing how consistently wrong the Left has been. They want to compromise, negotiate, and placate evil,” says Tim Watkins. “There’s only one way to defeat evil and keep our freedom - no compromise
Noted radio commentator Rush Limbaugh, who pre-screened the film said on his #1 rated “The Rush Limbaugh Show”, “I think it's a brilliant effort. It makes the point that Reagan was an electoral failure for 40 years. And he tried and tried, and lost and lost but he kept coming back and he finally won. And it was Ronald Reagan, not the Neville Chamberlains and not the pacifists and not the John Kerry types, (although John Kerry is not in the movie) that enable us to win over those forces that are going to attempt to subjugate us to a life of imprisonment and no freedom. I think it was extremely well done, and I'm looking forward to when this thing hits. “
