1. IT’S A BIBLICAL HORROR STORY …
Basically, the Bible is full of scary shit.
“When I was a child and in Bible study, the sinister elements of the Bible are impossible to ignore,” he said. “You have angels patrolling through Egypt and slaughtering the firstborn. You have turned the river into blood … You have been plagued by locusts and a pillar of fire. And you have a God who is excited to just murder people after “Pleasure and anger. You have demons, you have talking snakes, you’ve got people torn apart, tortured, and that’s all.”
And you’ve got people using it to twist their own narrative to get what they want.
FLANAGAN’S JOURNEY TO SOBRIET WAS A GREAT INSPIRATION
This is not the first time Flanagan has tried to write a midnight mass. He struggled with it for years. It was only before his sobriety and being able to look back and realize that he had a problem, he was able to complete it.
“It’s a completely different show with three years of sobriety behind me than it would have been before. I feel like it would have been an incomplete conversation. ”
6. PUTS A UNIQUE SPIN ON THE CITY CITY
Rahul Kohli as Sheriff Hassan. A Muslim man on an island full of Catholics
“You have the typical American hero in the cinema: the sheriff. John Wayne,” he explained. “He saves the day, and he’s the ultimate hero in America. Then there’s the Hassan bit. You have America’s greatest villain post-911: the bearded man. The Muslim. The two things merge. And that was the first thing that happened. “Very clear to me with the sheriff. And I loved it. I loved how confusing that picture is.”
Discussion posts? This show hit me a lot harder than his previous one. I love it. But I can see some do not like it lol
QB1 still owns my heart
