They’re Turning a Chick Tract About Dungeons & Dragons Into a Movie Now…

***Update***: As many commenters have noted, this movie is a tongue-in-cheek parody. Thanks for the clarification, everyone!

In 1984, Jack Chick wrote another one of his obnoxious tracts where the Christians are good and the non-Christians are evil and all paths not leading directly to Christ are to be avoided at all costs. This particular tract was about the horrors of Dungeons & Dragons:

Yep, that’s what the game will do to you…

And now that comic is turning into a (presumably awful) Christian movie called Dark Dungeons:

Debbie and Marcie arrive at college unaware of the dangers of RPGing. They are soon indoctrinated into this dangerous lifestyle where they face the threat of learning real life magical powers, being invited to join a witches’ coven, and resisting the lure of Ms. Frost, a vile temptress of a GM. But what peril must the two friends face when they stumble across the Necronomicon and their fantasy game becomes a reality game? Find out in Dark Dungeons!

I want to believe this is all a big joke, but I think it’s serious. It may even rival The Lock In for the worst Christian film you’ll see all year.

Side note: This movie got its funding on Kickstarter, where it doubled its initial goal of raising $12,500.
