Horror films are fundamentally Christian.  There.  I said it.

Christians are just about the only people who don't recognize it.

I read an article the other day that whined about the fact.  It was only a matter of time before some punk kid, fresh out of zits and his high school prom (sipping a latte with a raised pinky at a Starbucks), got woke and did his part for Communism.

Take out the gratuitous nudity and any violence-for-violence-sake elements and what you are left with a number of fundamentally sound premises. Sin, with limits removed, creates monsters. Vampires are lust with community expectations removed. Zombies are bodily appetites without the limiting pressures of the mind and soul. Ghosts are spirits without the limiting blessings of bodily needs. The storytelling possibilities abound. Add the horrors of our reality, which is infested with demonic hordes, and the calling of God’s people to be the feet of Jesus crushing Satan and his minions underneath our feet and you have yourself a festival of Christian horror stories.

Jesus spent a major portion of his earthly ministry kicking the snot out of demons.  That’s why you can take the kids trick or treating without selling your soul to the devil.  Jesus has crushed satan's head (Genesis 3:15) and now he’s dancing on it through the church (Rom. 16:20).  Put on a mask and mock satan with a pitchfork and some goat horns.

Or just make a film.

You haven't seen a horror flick produced or distributed by a faith-based company--yet.  What you are about to see from LOOR is a docu-series called Dark Holler.  You'll never look at a West Virginia coal mining town the same way again.

Be among the first to get updates on the release at LOOR Founders, our private Facebook group.  There are more than 2,400 crazy extremists there waiting to meet you.
