Dark Dungeons: The Movie

Postby ArcticFox » Thu Mar 20, 2014 4:27 am

This is going to be AWESOME.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jr ... -the-movie

They swear up and down this movie isn't meant as parody and satire, and they actually did get Jack Chick's permission to do the film. Considering Zombie Orpheus is involved (The guys behind my all time favorite movie: The Gamers: Dorkness Rising) this can't possibly be an honest attempt to spread Chick's message. I think they're basically using the fact that Dark Dungeons (the tract) is already an unintentional parody of itself and want to transfer that spirit to video.

A bit sneaky, IMHO... But not gonna lie, I'm gonna buy a copy.

oh man.
Oh Man.
OH MAN.

I'm so down for this.

I remember that Chick Tract. One of my first introductions to D&D, too.

Love me some full on satire, too.

Wish I knew about this kickstarter sooner, I would have backed it.

And not gonna lie, either.
The Gamers: Dorkness Rising was pretty awesome. It really got me wanting to try out D&D.

It's kind of weird how insistent they are that it isn't a parody or satire, but if you watch the guy's video on the kickstarter I think there are some subtle hints that, despite this, the intention is not for this movie to be taken seriously. It'll LOOK serious, but we as the audience who KNOW D&D and understand how it really works, will find the movie as hilarious as the tract...

...which Dolly is buying a copy of on eBay today just 'cause.

And once again, even though I've linked this several times before, I present to you the MST3K treatment of Dark Dungeons.

A proper satire never lets it on that it's a satire.

Dude, the MST3K Dark Dungeons is hilarious.

You said earlier you liked Dorkness Rising... Have you seen the sequel, Hands of Fate?

Oh yes, I was in on the Kickstarter so my name is in the closing credits :D

It is very much like Dorkness Rising, only it focuses primarily on card games, as opposed to tabletop RPG. (Although that's still in there too.)

Nice! Well, I do enjoy myself some MtG, too. Looks like I have something to catch up on.

You can watch the trailer for Hands of Fate:



And YouTube also seems to have the whole movie in episode form, uploaded by The ZombieOrpheus guys so it's legit.

I've been watching JourneyQuest. I've been loving Glorian, especially with the lying gargoyle.
