This is the trailer to a movie called Dark Dungeons, which is based on the 1984 Christian comic by Jack Chick. The story points out all of the evil dangers of RPG's (Role Playing Games). Yes, some people believe that playing Dungeons and Dragons is a road straight to hell! Zombie Orpheus Entertainment bought the rights to the comic and turned it into a feature film. Here's the first trailer for the indie film that was funded through Kickstarter. Check out the synopsis:
Debbie and Marcie arrive at college unaware of the dangers of RPGing. They are soon indoctrinated into this dangerous lifestyle where they face the threat of learning real life magical powers, being invited to join a witches' coven, and resisting the lure of Ms. Frost, a vile temptress of a GM. But what peril must the two friends face when they stumble across the Necronomicon and their fantasy game becomes a reality game? Find out in Dark Dungeons!
This looks like a decently made film for such a low budget. I'm really interested in checking this out. It's kind a fascinating subject matter. Here's a sarcastic rant about the comic, and the film they set out to make:
All you really need to know is that it sets out to show what Jack Chick knows to be the truth behind role-playing. It shows that;
*Playing RPGs can make you gain real life magic abilities
*If you gain a high enough level you will be invited to join a secret cult
* Gamers whose characters die are in danger of committing suicide.
* That DM's are vile temptresses that are out to corrupt their players to the forces of evil.
Given all those startling claims it's amazing that the crusade against RPG's has not been more successful! In fact, the last movie to crusade against D&D was Tom Hank's 1982 classic, "Mazes and Monsters."
Check out the trailer and let us know if this is a movie you'd be interested in watching! The movie is set to premiere at Gen Con Indy on August 14th.
