The End of the World depicts a worldwide catastrophe, when an errant comet passes by Earth and causes natural disasters and social unrest. Blom and his crew created special effects for the comet disaster using showers of fiery sparks and shrouds of smoke. The film attracted a huge audience, because of fears generated during the passing of Halley's Comet six years earlier, as well as the ongoing turbulence and unrest of World War I.

The film has hard-encoded Danish and English subtitles. Approx. 77 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!
