Moment of Truth: Christian Horror and "Scare" Films: Worm (2007)

  • Comfort Station 2579 North Milwaukee Avenue Chicago, IL, 60647 United States

Comfort Film presents a bi-monthly film Series
Moment of Truth: Christian Horror and "Scare" Films.
Curated and Presented by Jason Coffman.

Theme: 
Teenagers in Hell

Worm (2007, 30 minutes, dir. Karen Seimears) 

M 10.28 (1999, 50 minutes, dir. Bruce Neubauer)

Unsurprisingly, Hell is a fairly popular subject in Christian cinema. "Worm" is the Christian teen scare film pared down to its barest essentials: Adam is in Hell, which is a black void where his shouting echoes massively. He is utterly alone. He remembers events from his life, mostly those when he should have taken the opportunity to come to Jesus, and screams at his past self in hopes of changing his fate. In "M 10.28," independent filmmaker Bruce Neubauer shows what happens when a teenage girl sneaks away from a church lock-in to go to a party with boys and beer. She ends up in a Hell where monstrous demons torment the damned in claustrophobic caves, lined with bars and barbed wire.

Jason Coffman will present each film and have a brief Q&A after.
