Treatment 125 – The Prophecy II

Prophecy2DanzigChris Walken is a legend unto himself, and yet we didn’t choose this film because he’s in it! I know, hard to believe right?! So then why did we choose this film? Well, because our special guest, Mr. James Greene Jr. wrote a book all about The Misfits, called This Music Leaves Stains! Still don’t see the connection? Well, you will for 2.7 minutes of the film, when Glenn Danzig makes an appearance!!

The Prophecy II

Yep, it’s a war between angels, and Chris Walken is leading the charge. Also, Russell Wong is seducing Jennifer Beals to make an Angel/human hybrid super-warrior. And also….I dunno, that’s about the full extent of sense being made.

KNEEL… in reverence as James reveals the full, immense awesomeness that is Glenn Danzig‘s acting career!!!

WORSHIP… at the alter of schlock as Doug pulls out his Walken impression (by popular demand)!!!

PRAY… for death, as the show drags into After Movie Dineresque lengths!!!

As ever, this week’s film is available to watch streaming on Netflix Instant. Also, if you’re looking to learn all about The Misfits, you can find James’ book in our store under “other things we like!! The paperback will be available in fine store everywhere in October, so keep that in mind as well!

Next Week: We get adventuresome and watch Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins!!!

  1. Another great show. I remember seeing “The Prophecy” at a local mall theater while I was getting some new tires at Sears. I walked into the theater looking to kill a couple of hours, and I’d never heard of “The Prophecy”, but it was a matinee so I wasn’t risking much. It blew me away. I loved Christopher Walken, I loved Elias Koteas, I loved Viggo Mortensen as Lucifer, I even really liked Steve Hytner as the coroner. I think my favorite was Eric Stotz, but he didn’t last very long. When I saw the sequel, I liked it , but it felt a little like a cash in. Since Walken died at the end of the original (spoiler, sorry), I was surprised he came back for the next movie. I didn’t complain too much though, because he is fun to watch. I’m going to have to revisit “The Prophecy 2” after hearing you guys talk about it. I can’t wait to hear your feelings about “Remo Williams, The Adventure Begins”. I really liked it when I saw it in the theater, and I couldn’t wait for the sequel, but unfortunately it never happened. Also, if you guys get a chance, can Matt talk about that After Movie Diner promo he did a while back? I mostly remember him talking about pie, until he gets shot at the end. Was the pie part his idea? Thanks guys, keep the great shows coming.

    1. Have you listened to the “Crispy Bread Sandwich” episode of The After Movie Diner? That’s got a heaping helping of Matt Ringler in it.

    1. Oddly enough, our Remo Williams episode is full of all the Walken impressions we didn’t do for The Prophecy 2. Go figure.

  2. When I was trying to find a dumb sounding movie to use in the Schlock Treatment Guyz post (before I gave up and went with H.O.T.S.), I came across Remo Williams, looked at the poster and Fred Ward as the star, and instantly dismissed it as too random a movie, one that would fall flat on its face and kill the “joke.” Is that a case of me underestimating Remo Williams or overestimating you guys?

    1. I also dismissed Blind Fury, where Rutger Hauer plays a blind Vietnam veteran/expert Samurai swordsman who has to fight gangsters to save his son (it even involves a Mr. Magoo gag where he drives the wrong way down a heavily trafficked road while cars screech out of his way and he remarks “This is easy”). Is that next week on Schlock Treatment?
