My kind of movie credit.


From the end credits for The Unborn:

No actual Torah scrolls were destroyed or damaged in the making of this motion picture.

This appears just below the standard bit that reassures us the animal action was monitored by the American Humane Society.

I do find the credit kind of amusing, but I’m not just being snarky here. I actually like it when a movie about religious or sacred or supernatural things takes them at least quasi-seriously.

But it does make you wonder about other things. Like whether any “actual” prayers were said or any “actual” spirits were invoked!

    that was always the worry with productions of (ooh, I almost said something other than THE SCOTTISH PLAY)…..were there actual demons being raised? Hence the play’s rep for unluckiness…..
