Chick Tracts: THE MOVIE 2 Months, 1 Week ago  
Apologies if this Great News has already been shared, but I know we've talked about these things here and I'm so happy this exists:



Someone actually got permission and funding (from KS) to make a live-action movie of the most notorious Chick Tract ever, "Dark Dungeons." The one that shows how playing Dungeons and Dragons will cause your soul to get eaten by Cthulu or something like that. Erm, yeah.

The one thing the movie seems to do to improve upon the source material? A raging kegger of young hotties who are super excited to "RPG!" Yes, this is precisely how I remember college.

:)


Enjoy!

Nice find.

Guess their production budget was so low they could only afford the dungeon gray game tiles :(

is this a parody or a real effort? cuz it is funny as heck so far. and yes my collage days of D&Ds seemed a lot lighter on the women and keggers and a little heavier on the dorks, Pepsi and snicker bars.

:D

It's sort of a mix of satire and straight. More precisely, they're making (or already made?) a completely straightforward adaptation of "Dark Dungeons" with the inevitable result that it's completely ridiculous and laughable. It seems like it was the absolute best approach: it would be pointless to exaggerate on what Chick already did, and it would be smug to try to mock it actively. Just put it out there, and let it be as insipid as it was on the page.

The story behind it is pretty interesting, and clarifies the approach they took:
