The Bible is a Horror Story

Where would us horror movie lovers be without the bible? I just watched the new Omen last night and loved it. There are just so many horror movies done about the bible. Where else is it such a struggle for good to overcome evil? You can thank the bible for so many great movies. Poltergeist, Omen, Stigmata, Exorcist, 976-EVIL, Prince of Darkness, etc. Well if anyone can think of any more, let me know because I would love to check them out.

How about the Exorcist

How about the Exorcist sequels?

I heard 'Rosemary's baby' is similar to The Omen. I haven't seen both of them, though.

Well if we didn't have the bible the horror industry would probably have to get a lot of stuff out of old europe folklore along with all the religions before the bible.

Think of it "Zeus - The Untold Story" or "Grendel II - Mommy Ain't Dead" or "Mithra - He'll Show You The Real Meaning of Blood Sacrifice" Ok the last one is a little long, but there is a reason they don't pay me to come up with titles.

How could I forget Rosemary's Baby?  I've read the book and seen the movie twice.  Mia Farrow who plays Rosemary is also in the new Omen as Damien's Guardian so yeah it does have lots of similarities.  I assume that's why she's in it.

Yeah but if it's not rated R, it's not real horror.  I don't think this qualifies.

Have you seen Angel Heart, and let's not forget Constantine, but you've prolly seen that one.

Angel Heart is awesome! 

Angel Heart is awesome!  Highly recomended!  It has Robert Deniro, Lisa Bonet, and Mickey Rourke.  And let's be honest, how can you go wrong with Deniro?

The Passion of the Christ might not be considered a horror movie, but it had more bloody scenes in it than any horror movie Hollywood has ever made. In that movie they beat poor Jesus to a bloody pulp just because he changed water into wine.

Kind of seems unfair. Other movie characters have done magic and never been beaten. Mary Poppins changed cough syrup into fruit punch and nobody kicked her ass.

Frosty's coming back someday. Will you be ready?
