Dusk Gets Religious in December
Dusk takes a unique approach to the holiday season bringing up films with a religious tone. Of course considering it is a channel dedicated to supernatural, thriller and suspense genres that means we won't be seeing The Ten Commandments or the Passion of the Christ but rather films that involve possession and exorcisms. Let's have a look, shall we?
Dec 5/09 at 9pm EST: The Ninth Gate
Dec 5/09 at 11:50pm EST: The Order
Dec 12/09 at 9pm EST: Stigmata
Dec 12/09 at 11:15pm EST: The Prophecy
Dec 19/09 at 9pm EST: The Exorcism of Emily Rose
Dec 19/09 at 11:35pm EST: Bringing Out the Dead
Dec 26/09 at 9pm EST: Bless the Child
Dec 26/09 at 11:20pm EST: Rosemary’s Baby
Interesting double bills there! I'm actually a big fan of Stigmata, I really enjoyed the performances by Patricia Arquette and Gabriel Byrne and just love her apartment in the film. I also think The Exorcism of Emily Rose was a solid horror/drama and of course Rosemary’s Baby is pretty classic for the scare factor.
Also seasonal in the line up is Black Christmas (2006) playing Dec 25/09 at 1:30am EST.
Although neither religious nor seasonal, but a great selection nonetheless this month is Watcher in the Woods, a 1980 Disney film that still scares me with the strong imagery and spooky story. It plays on December 22/09 at 9pm EST.
