As if the Kevin Sorbo movie and the Erik Estrada movie aren’t enough, there’s another new Christian movie coming out that is almost certainly to be an unintentional laugh riot. It’s called The Lock In and it’s the tale of a youth group that has a lock in and has to confront demons because one of the boys brought a dirty magazine.
Holy Moly Pictures has announced the release date for The Lock In, a Christian found footage horror film about pornography to be released January 9th, 2014.
Imagine your life being torn apart and the very wiring of your brain being changed by a seemingly innocent prank. This is what happens when three teenage boys are terrorized by demon activity after a “dirty magazine” is snuck into an overnight church event called a lock in. During the lock in, members of the youth group are “locked in” the church to have fun, play games, and get to know one another. In spite of the youth pastor’s attempt to intervene, the boys must come to terms with the pornographic images themselves in order to be truly freed from the demon.
Movies have always been a good medium to highlight social issues. Pornography is a growing epidemic in the church community for men, women, and children with most of the underage victims being exposed in a place thought to be safe. The producers of the film hope that not only will it be entertaining, it will also be used as a tool for conversations about the dangers of pornography and the importance of being aware.
Here’s the trailer, which makes it look like a Blair Witch Project for the anti-masturbation set.
This has to be added to the watch party I’m planning.
