In the 1980s, we were introduced to a slew of rampant paranoia surrounding of my favorite RPGs; Dungeons and Dragons. And what sprung from the loins of that wildly preposterous hysteria was a horrible made-for-TV movie called Mazes and Monsters; a movie adaptation of a fictionalized novelization of an inaccurate story surrounding the disappearance of an MSU student.
In other words, this cinematic abortion is a piece of drivel birthed by the paranoia created by people too bloody pathetic to assume any responsibility for their children’s mental well-being that they have to concoct some BS reason why their children take a swim in the deep end of the mental wacko-pool so as to not assume the blame for their own eff-ups as parents.
So, anywho, when this crapfest made its way to video, my friend and I rented it thinking we were about to see a cool movie. The case’s description was a bit misleading, making us thing someone was getting transported to some cool fantasy world.
Gods, were we wrong.
But now, another hapless geek has chosen to submit himself to the rigorous tortures that this movie heaps upon unsuspecting victims; Spoony. That loveable scamp from www.thatguywiththeglasses.com
So, if you’d like to hear an entertaining look at this crappy movie, you can check it out here.
Also, as a bonus feature, I’ve found a few other articles and humorous bits about other not-so-polite-to-gamers crap that has sprung up over the years. Namely that positive thinker Jack Chick.
First, we have The Escapist’s look at Dark Dungeon’s, a comic by Jack Chick meant to show the evils of Dungeons and Dragons and how they lead you down the path of darkness.
And lastly, what would it sound like if the boys from MST3K got to “watch” Dark Dungeons as one of their experiments.
So enjoy poking fun at the norms and remember…
“Beware of the sacrilege!”
