When Father MacLeod is saying the funeral Mass for the slain child, the Latin he uses is completely random. For example, during the ablutions (where he is washing his fingers presumably prior to the consecration) he is saying the "Hail Mary", which is not part of the Mass liturgy at all. Also, if the action is contemporary (as the cars being used suggest), the Mass would almost certainly be in the vernacular (i.e. either English or Spanish). See more »

For those not afraid of cheapo 80's television horror comes Nightmares. Essentially this was the remainder of the filmed episodes of Universals anthology series "The Darkroom", you know, the short lived one that was on ABC in the early eighties, had James Coburn as the host. Oh well, I tried. Anywho, the 4 story movie was very "un-scary" to most, but entertaining enough to sit through if you enjoy speculative fiction type stories. Of course the staple memory from this movie is the segment with E.Esteves called "The Bishop of Battle". After TRON failed to bag box office reciepts in the upper millions, I guess Universal thought they could do better with a video game nightmare story replete with computer graphics. Must have worked for this film as mentioning this segment, jars memories even in this day. Trivia bit: Eighties icon Moon Unit Zappa makes a guest appearance in the film, see if you can spot her.
