MORE INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR MOVIE CHOICES:
Idiocracy (2006) - After losing out to Donnie Darko, Idiocracy is back by popular demand. Here's the story as IMDb tells it: Private Joe Bauers, the definition of "average American", is selected by the Pentagon to be the guinea pig for a top-secret hibernation program. Forgotten, he awakes 500 years in the future. He discovers a society so incredibly dumbed-down that he's easily the most intelligent person alive. Don't forget this one is directed by Mike Judge of Beavis and Butthead and Office Space fame!
Hell House (2001) - Since this was second place last month, we decided to bring this documentary back for another chance at the title of NAFA Movie Night Champion. Here's the story as IMDb tells it: A look at the "Hell House" performed annually in October by the youth members of Trinity Church (Assemblies of God) in Cedar Hill, Texas (a Dallas suburb) - seen by over 10,000 visitors each year. We see the organization and planning of the event - including auditions, construction, scripting and rehearsals - largely through the involvement of one family: a single father with 4 children (one of whom suffers from cerebral palsy) including his daughter, a cast member. Here's the story as I tell it: A infuriating but oddly laugh out loud funny and incredibly awkward look at how some evangelicals try to save souls by scaring the hell out of people.
The Rapture (1991) - The newcomer of the bunch, I found this movie recommended as a good freethought movie on the FFRF website. Here's the story as IMDb tells it: A telephone operator living an empty, amoral life finds God and loses him again. Here's the story as the FFRF website tells it: David G. Fitzgerald calls this a "Christian horror film," adding: " 'The Rapture' is the film that the religious right should have been protesting instead of 'The Last Temptation of Christ.' It asks: what if all those apocalyptic bible-thumpers were right?--then uses the inherent contradictions of the bible to devastate the image of a loving Christian god. This is a film that will scare unbelievers and believers alike." If you want to see David Duchovny with a mullet vote for this one!
