Get You a Bible (the Prophecy 4: Uprising, 2005)

Prophecy_4_UprisingSo, the Prophecy series went dormant. And honestly? I would have been perfectly satisfied with it being a trilogy of films.  But 2005 brought the first of two sequels that were filmed back to back on the cheap.

Set in Bucharest, American Allison discovers the Lexicon, a religious manuscript that is still writing itself. It is writing a new chapter of Revelations, and demon Belial wants it. Satan wants to stop this and enlists a cop with a secret connection to Allison.

So, pretty much the only angels here are of the fallen kind.  Satan verses demons. The war in Heaven may be over, but hell is not doing so well. So, yeah, Satan is the good guy here by default.

This film feels nothing like the first three, and lacks the thoughtful dialog. This is a pretty boring film and I just could not get into it.


I took the name for this post from a Christian Rap group called Preachers In Disguise, or P.I.D. for short.  Which was not well thought out, since a search for “P.I.D.” brings up a ton of links about Pelvic Inflammatory Disease.

Manimal Part 2 (Beastmaster 2: Through the Portal of Time, 1991)

beastmaster_ii_poster.jpgDar is off living as a nomad with only his animal companions.  The evil Arklon is trying to take over their world.  He is promised the ultimate weapon by the sorceress Lyranna.  She brings him to a portal to another world.  Just as they are planning to go through, a car, followed by two cop cars burst through.  The first car is occupied a young woman named Jackie. She meets up with Dar, and is, obviously confused.

Eventually, they cross over to our world.  This is actually where the film picks up.  Dar’s fish out of water situation is pretty funny.  He notes that the term rock and roll seems accurate, as it reminds him of an earthquake.

Outside of this, it is not all that memorable.  There are some attempts to create epic connections between Dar and Arklon, but they end up coming off as rather silly. And again, the acting is all over the place. Sarah Douglas is pretty obviously enjoying hamming it up.

The film lacks much in the way of monsters.  There is one, but it turns out to have a connection to Dar (everybody seems connected to Dar).

This is the only film directed by producer Sylvio Tabet, and it is kind of obvious why. A lot of the film is pretty pedestrian,
