    Once again you’ve churned up an old HBO memory, FF. I remember seeing this film back in the day and digging it pretty much for the reasons you mentioned. I also liked the fact that Good wins, but there is a price. As to the priest going blind, I sort of thought the reason why he lost his sight is he saw things Mortal Man was not meant to see.

      I got about the same thing as you did from that, and I’m not sure if you noticed, but the older priest that reveals is role to him is also blind, implying that he once faced something under similar circumstances. 🙂

        Ah, I forgot about that until you mentioned it.

        It’s nice when movies take the time to include little things like this. You can easily miss them, but when you notice, it’s a great, “oh, hey!” moment.

    Nice review! I’m loving the editing. Also, did Luke remind anybody else of the ‘guy who has his eyes explode from a car battery’ from Silent Night Deadly Night Part 2?

    God, my brother and I rented this in the early 90’s. I also have that 8 movie set. It’s awesome.

      Truly! The real find on it was ‘Chopping Mall’. Proof of my theory that, in the 80’s, the answer to EVERY SINGLE SOCIETAL PROBLEM was ‘Killer Robots’.

    I’ve never seen it but I remember the trailer from my VHS copy of The Monster Squad when I was a kid.
