Film Review: The Prophecy (1995)

The-Prophecy-bluray

SYNOPSIS: The angel Gabriel comes to Earth to collect a soul which will end the stalemated war in Heaven, and only a former priest and a little girl can stop him.

Walken carried forth his reoccurring role as Gabriel into not 1 but 3 films in the “Prophecy” franchise. Movies of this nature seemingly combine horror and … Continue reading

I dig these theme releases, and to be honest I’ve only see the first one. So, here is a chance to check out 6 sequels and … Continue reading

salemwitch-trials

SYNOPSIS: Four hour miniseries about the 1692 witch trials in Salem Village, Mass. that lead to the hanging of 19 convicted “witches” and the imprisonment of many others.
