This is a comments thread about FSM CD: Prophecy

I feel like I should add a disclaimer to my review stating that it is indeed a terrible film and my love of it is borne out of nostalgia, a great score and a preference for the way films were shot and executed back then.
I would never argue that it is a good film, but I can sit through and enjoy it more than so many other more lauded and celebrated films.

"And I quite enjoyed it, despite some unintentional comedy moments and a real lack of tension or terror attacks"

Its the best moment from the film - but theres another where Armand Assante takes off like a bat out of hell, running through a camp, through a building and then diving out an open window at full speed. Its so absurd and full of energy I couldn't stop laughing at it.

Scariest end credits music of all time.

The credits sequence has always stood out as one my favorite B movie openers.

Pitch black but for torch lights, the only clues as to who and where being the foreboding sounds of the pines wafting in the wind and the urgent panting of the bloodhounds, and then suddenly Lennie cuts in with the full orchestra and the chase is on … but of what?

In related news, the super hot actress Victoria Racimo, who played Assante's wife in this film, died last year aged 77.
My teenage self will never forget her scenes towards the end of this film, soaked through on the misty deck of that wooden dwelling.
Sure gave Jackie Bissett a run for her money.
Cold shower!! Cold shower!! wink

Hi, all you need to see from this movie:


There's also another unintentionally funny scene later in the film where all the potential victims are hiding underground and one sticks his head out a hole to check out the situation, only to get thrashed by the monster. The reason it makes me laugh is it's so similar to a scene in an old Buggs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Elmer Fudd cartoon; after Buggs and Daffy have been hiding from Fudd underground for a bit, Buggs implores poor Daffy to "See if he's still out there." Which he does. Needless to say, violent hilarity ensues.

I can't watch that Prophecy scene with thinking of Daffy's slurred, "Yep, thstill lurking about..."
