Movies that the Vatican Doesn’t Want You to See…

Funny.

The horror movie that opened this weekend, The Devil Inside, ran on the tag line “It’s the movie the Vatican doesn’t want you to see.”

Turns out there was a very good reason the Vatican wouldn’t want us to see it.

The movie has been almost universally panned as a terrible, terrible movie.

The Vatican, FTW!

So, how do moviegoers respond to the widespread condemnation of this film as a piece of trash? They make it #1, and guarantee we’ll be getting more of this crap.

And, as a matter of fact, the director of “the movie the Vatican doesn’t want you to see” now wants you to see his new film about the Vatican.

I am not making this up.

Let me borrow a line from Steve Martin and say it to this director: I don’t think you realize how unattractive hate is.
