This homely girl is the result of intercourse between Bruce Willis and Demi Moore
I just watched the “horror” film From Within which is part of the third After Dark Horrorfest: 8 Films to Die for film series. Out of all of the films I have seen in this series, From Within is easily the most Anti-Christian. In fact, it is so Anti-Christian that it even offends me and I am far from a saint. I grew up in a somewhat small town and was exposed to stupid superstitious rural folk. You know, the type of Jesus fans that a film like from From Within portrays as blood thirsty country bumpkins looking blindly to do the lord’s work. As a child, I was told by a good Christian child I was going to hell because I never went to church. I also recall a group of holy Negro children telling me that I was going to hell when I was 7 years old because I told them my favorite color was red (maybe because it’s the color of the devil and blood or something?). The Christians featured in From Within are much more militant than the ones I grew up around, but it is a movie and not reality after all, isn’t it?
What happens when a series of suicides occur in a small Christian town in the good ole’ U.S.A.? The good JC fans in From Within ignore the occurrences and cling tighter to their bibles. After some time though, the reason for the suicides becomes apparent when a nonbeliever named Aidan insults Christianity to a fanatical Christian teenager named Dylan who happens to be the son of the Pastor (who secretly likes to play buttdarts!). Aidan gets Dylan back though by stealing his virginal girlfriend and showing her why purity is boring. Of course, Dylan unleashes an angry mob (or just a few rednecks in a pick-up truck) on poor wussy pseudo-Goth boi Aiden. Aiden’s mother, who dabbled in witchcraft, had her life cut short by the very same townspeople. From Within, is another one of those films that show why living in a small town where you know everyone is bad and can lead to death.
From Within has all the signature anti-Christian clichés that have become ever so popular with each passing year in Hollywood. The film features hateful and self-righteous Christian psychos, Christians looking to kill nonbelievers in the name of Christ, Christians lacking a sense of humor, Christian rednecks, Gay false prophet pastors, and the ever so popular Christian irrational hostility to outsiders. As much as I hate most evangelical types that I encounter, I felt that From Within was just stupid hateful trash. The most symbolic of this stupidity is having Adam Goldberg, the whiniest Jew in movies since Woody Allen, playing a tough redneck ex-con turned Christian crusader for Christ. This type of genius casting is equivalent to having Arnold Schwarzenegger playing a Rabbi in a film where he gives prayers to liberated Jews at Dachau concentration camp in 1945. I don’t know, maybe Adam Goldberg wanted to pretend he had a pair of testicles for once in his life by playing a redneck. Poor Goldie, it was impossible for him to cover up the peculiar sounds that come out of his mouth when he talks even while playing a blue collar hooligan.
Kosher Commando Adam Goldberg is not fooling anyone
From Within is one of those films that just demands you to feel how badly it sucks. With the film's series of suicides, it makes one wonder if that was the act intended for the viewer by the director after watching the film. The only possible way for one to get From Within out of their mind after watching it is to end ones tainted life there afterwards. For someone that has been a nonbeliever and outspoken against the obvious hypocrisies of Christianity from an early age, I even felt like I was going to hell after watching From Within. It makes me almost wish there was a hell so that I could rest easy at night knowing that filmmakers like Steven Spielberg would be getting a pitchfork in the ass while being escorted into hell by the devil himself.
