According to Legend, The College Prophets are members of an ancient guild of fighters. Their story begins when Tommy and Rye, two violent brawlers accidentally awaken a powerful dark force in The Well That Ate Children. The well, created from the remnants of humanities inventions since the beginning of time, begins to possess the townspeople and poison their water supply. Only after their actions destroy everything they loved but for each other, they formulate a plan with the help of the other Prophets to set things right. Fighting with the wisdom of the Guild and power of their beliefs they correct their mistakes and prevent the world's demise.Written by
Throughout the production, Russ Russo stayed in character as Irish gangster Jonah Joe off-camera, complete with his heavy brogue. Most of the cast and crew assumed he was fresh off the boat from Ireland until the wrap party. See more »
Okay idea, really bad execution
This is one of those movies that looks promising. But it really lets that promise down. It's neither good or bad good (in the campy sense), merely very very boring. And that's how a film really fails.
The apparent aim was to make a campy sort of movie - you have a cast of ridiculous characters seemingly out of various animated comedies like Sealab, King of the Hill and possibly South Park. You have one bald guy who likes to dress like a priest, another guy who wears army fatigues (and looks like the guy who mutters from King of the Hill), a goofy Science Teacher, another bald guy who wears a deck of cards on his arm.
The trouble is, none of the concepts really works. All of the actors play their roles too tightly, and it comes off as more pretentious than anything else. The only exception would be the campus cop leader.
The plot apparently revolves around a romantic dispute over a guy in drag. This was when I started putting the DVD player on "x4". Nothing much happens, but near the end we get sort of a surreal sort of fight with a guy painted blue and wearing a helmet and everyone else.
