Did You Know?


During a role-playing game, Debbie says that she will "cast Magic Missile to attack the darkness." This is a reference to the "Dungeons and Dragons" sketch by comedy group The Dead Alewives, in which an inept player is desperate to cast Magic Missile in a dark cavern even though there is no enemy around to fight; in response, and to the amusement of all other players, he proclaims, "I attack the darkness!" It's notable that this sketch is a parody of the same religious backlash against role-playing games that the Jack Chick tract "Dark Dungeons" was based in. See more »

Faithful adaptation of the Chick tract, with easter eggs
17 September 2014 | by (Midwest) – See all my reviews

In the 1980s, Jack Chick Publications produced an extremely fundamentalist Christian tract denouncing the dangers of playing RPGs. This film is hilarious precisely because it is so self-aware in following the fantastical tract, even one-upping it at times(LARP and Cthulhu, anyone?) The story follows two Christian girls, Marcie and Debbie, as they go off to college and become ensnared by the glamorous, underground bacchanal that is Dark Dungeons gaming. But things are even darker than the bags under the girls' eyes after playing all night -- Mistress Frost seeks to use the girls to call forth demons into our world. Watch who lives, who dies, and who falls to their knees to accept Jesus as their personal lord and savior.

Above all, watch for the references to gaming, to other Zombie Orpheum productions, and to Maven of the Eventide from the That Guy With The Glasses website.
