Topic of the day: best movies of __________ genre.

This is the kind of thing that would be great to do if I had readers, because I'm sure there's a ton I'm going to miss, but I want to put together a top (at least) ten of Catholic/demon movies. That is, movies of old-school religion against some sort of massive evil force. Or, any movie with demons or the antichrist with heavy religious/ritualistic overtones. There's some that stick closer to the topic than others, but they all have alot in common. Probably not much commentary, at least right off the bat; let's see if I can come up with ten. In no particular order:

11. Hellraiser? Maybe?

10. Rosemary's Baby

9. The Omen

8. Bless The Child (Or is it "Bless the Children"?)

7. End of Days

6. Constantine

5. The new Exorcist flick, whatever it was called.

4. Amityville Horror, just because of the scene with the priest.

3. Salem's Lot. It was vampires, not demons or the antichrist, but a Catholic-driven movie against pure evil, so it counts.

2. Se7en, or, as I call it, "Seven". Again, not a demon, but any movie with a wicked evil serial killer based on the seven deadly sins qualifies.

1. And, of course, the top of the pile; the holy grail of Catholic/Demon movies: The Exorcist

Suggestions and comments are, of course, welcome to this rather scant list.


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
