Let’s face it — we haven’t hit the mainstream until we’ve broken into horror movies. And the possibilities for Mormon horror are enormous. After a quick brainstorm with danithew (of Blog-Diss fame), I’m chuckling about some of the possibilities. In the best Julie-Smith tradition, let me present:
Livestock are disappearing outside of a small town in the Utah hills. Branches rustling in the night. Strange footsteps by the riverbed. Is it a drifter? A group of local vandals? Or could it be . . . Cain?
Redeeming the Dead.
Zombies decide that they’d like to be baptized for the dead, and they kidnap a temple president to make it happen. Can he escape? Will he be eaten? And can he figure out how the undead fit into Mormon theology?
This year’s youth conference takes the youth out into the mountains, where they inadvertently awaken a group of hungry vampires. The stakes are high, and the testimony meeting won’t be boring this time.
Ward members are disappearing, and detective Zina Jones wonders whether the disappearances correlate too closely to priesthood interviews. Has Bishop Johnson been reading too much early church history? Could it be that he has decided to revive the doctrine of blood atonement?
