Trailer 6 – Night of the Hunter

Watch this……………………….

Read this …………………………………………………………………

His gods’ spirit is strong in him, coursing through his veins

His is an angry god, a vengeful god, Jehovah with his fire and brimstone and eternal damnation.

This god sees all , judges all, condemn all to the fiery pit.

We are all sinners say the preacher man, we are sinners of the flesh and of desire and of greed and dishonesty.

His sins seem so  tiny when he compares himself against the others

Those women who display them selves for mens’ lust, but refuse his touch and even worse, the woman who offers her body up as if it were a gift – he sees satan in all their eyes, understands that this is a test, his god is watching him, his actions are righteous, blessed.

The children, suffer little children to come to me says the preacher man – but these children lie, deceive. dissemble – their words are sharper than a serpents tooth, slicing  him to the quick, as sharp and sure as his own blade cuts.

The preacher man moves across an American landscape, his god has sent him into the wilderness, into darkness, driven by hunger and desire.

The preacher man travels slowly, deliberately, pale rider on the skyline.

Love and Hate and Hate and Love – it’s all the same to his god

The letters inked across his knuckles – each pin prick a nail driven into his hand.

And at the end, journeys end, when raging water drowns out his raging god, the preacher man knows peace

my god, my god, why have you forsaken me?
