The Garden

Man, I do love me some Armageddon!

From the press release:

On July 11 th IDT Entertainment's Anchor Bay Entertainment, the acknowledged industry leader in horror DVD programming, presents the DVD premiere of The Garden , the latest exercise in terror from the fertile mind of acclaimed writer/producer Stephen J. Cannell (“The A Team”, “Hunter”, “Profit”, “21 Jump Street”). Starring Lance Henriksen ( Aliens, Near Dark ), Claudia Christian (“ Babylon 5,” The Hidden ) and Sean Young ( Blade Runner, Stripes ), The Garden digs deep into the greatest fears of civilization itself and will take viewers on a mind-bending journey, possibly to the end of times! Seeded with a bushel of value-added bonus features including audio commentary from the director and exclusive behind the scenes footage, The Garden promises a harvest of thrills for the casual and ardent “horror”-ticulturalist! SRP is $19.98 and pre-book date is May 31st.

Sam (Adam Taylor Gordon) is a boy with big problems: he is besieged by nightmares (sometimes religious in nature), he cuts himself and he's recently been released from a mental hospital. When he and his recovering alcoholic father (Brian Wimmer) are involved in an auto accident, they are forced to stay on a ranch owned by the enigmatic Ben Zachary (Henriksen). Soon, Sam's dark visions become frighteningly real. Even Sam's benevolent teacher (Young) gives no comfort. Amid the wheat stalks and horse trails, the dead walk, evil is everywhere and Sam fears that an apocalyptic prophecy might come to pass. Produced by Stephen J. Cannell and Michael Dubelko, directed by Don Michael Paul and written by Samuel Bozzo, The Garden is a provocative horror thriller about the battle for the soul of mankind – waged within all of us.

All right, who’s up for movie night at Ms. Lori’s? Pizza, beer, and Satan -- who could possibly ask for more?

We didn't realize the "battle for the soul of mankind" was being waged within us. That explains all the acid reflux.

If I watched that alone at night, I probably wouldn't sleep. But it sounds like a good time with pizza, beer, and Ms. Lori and friends....

Editor, oh you're such an editor! ;-)

My favorite line is: "The Garden promises a harvest of thrills for the casual and ardent “horror”-ticulturalist!"


Stephanie, it WILL be a good time! Even if the movie isn't all that great, the beer and company will more than make up for it. Eight sharp, woman.

"Seeded with a bushel of value-added bonus features..." I think that's the goldmine here, who could resist that?

I'll go for the pizza and the beer, but I don't do horror movies. I've watched one or two, and believe me, considering thw weeks of nightmares, that was enough.

...And yes, I know I'm a wuss.

He's good, thanks for asking. He sends his regards.. :) (bloody man-fly has more friends than me!)

Have you 'cout'ed me in yet? Cos when you do I'd really like to know how one does that?
