Awesome. But you're right, the combination of the tagline plus The Devil's Rain is just brutal on the grammatical brain...

John Barleycorn said...

Good call, Bill. I was gonna say the same thing.

Pierce said...

Aha, but the plan works. The bad grammar is disconcerting you even before you see the movie!

Let's see...

Fox is supposedly doing "Race with the Devil", although it was listed as being released this year...but knowing they're doing a POTP remake is good enough for me.

"Beyond the Door" is actually a year earlier. And it's coming out on DVD soon.

Awesome. Never seen the PAHR poster before. I was lucky enough to see an actual screening at the local art museum. Lovely, haunting film.

i saw Race with the Devil on UHF back when i was around 11...the part where the cult or whatever kills their dog upset me mightily.

also, i couldn't understand what Hot Lips Houlihan was doing in this movie!
