There is a War in Heaven

A kitschy beach scene...

....Get's Walkened!

What's more menacing than Christopher Walken? Christopher Walken in the 1995 movie, "The Prophecy", with his hair dyed black, portraying the Archangel Gabriel, who has come down to Earth in search of an evil soul that can be used as a weapon in another angelic civil war in heaven. The first war was caused when God commanded his angels to bow down to his new creation, man. Some angels, like Lucifer, refused. The Archangel Gabriel also wonders why God loves his talking monkeys so much, and he wants another war. Anyway, I like Christopher Walken, and I think this painting will look great over my couch.

Evil Dead Rewind

Here is another treasure I found at Goodwill. It's called "Autumn Day", and it's by J. Medina.

Looks like a peaceful autumn day out in the woods near a small river or creek. Maybe there's a cabin nearby where you can go to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. I know. It's up in the Smokey Mountains. You and some friends drive up there for a weekend to stay in the little cabin in the woods. There's a little bridge over this river you cross before you get to the cabin. And later that night in the cabin's cellar you find the Sumerian Book of the Dead. 

Okay, I saw the trailer for the new 2013 version of "Evil Dead" recently. Something about all the deadly serious whispering from one of the actresses and the shaky voice saying, "I read a passage from that book. I released something evil." made me laugh. It seems like they are taking a fun '80's horror movie waaay too seriously. Two minutes was enough to make me want to find my old VHS tape of the original 1981 film.
