Debbie and Marcie arrive at college eager to save souls, but will they be able to save their own? Based on the graphic novel by Jack Chick.

Innocent students Debbie and Marcie arrive at college eager to save souls, but will they be able to save their own when they’re seduced by the exotic and sinister world of role playing games?

Dark Dungeons brings Jack Chick’s 1984 comic to your screen. Debbie and Marcie arrive at college unaware of the dangers of RPGing. They are soon indoctrinated into this dangerous lifestyle where they face the threat of learning real life magical powers, being invited to join a witches’ coven, and resisting the lure of Ms. Frost, a vile temptress of a GM. But what peril must the two friends face when they stumble across the Necronomicon and their fantasy game becomes a reality game?

    Good Show. I never liked the Cthulhu stuff either, but disagree with its presentation of the Darkness of D&D. It’s a fantasy roll playing game. It is what you make of it. Good or Evil. Because of the Christian slant on this movie I’ll give it an extra star. 7 out of 10

    I have mixed feelings about this one. I think it’s a solid production but it’s reminiscent of the hysteria from the 1980s being pedaled by Dungeons and Dragons alarmists. Given that Zombie Orpheus Entertainment and Dead Gentlemen Productions are so heavily invested in RPG nerd culture, it’s obvious this movie doesn’t reflect their own views, but it would have been nice to see a more tongue-in-cheek approach to this subject matter. The story presents itself as a dead-serious narrative and that’s a little too Tom Hank’s 1982 “Mazes and Monsters” for me.

    Dark Dungeons is one of my favorites. It’s faithfully based on the beloved Chick tract of the same name. It really hits home, because I, too, came from a background of witchcraft, sorcery, and role-playing games until I was saved. In my college days, I was part of the role-playing crowd, and, just like it is truthfully shown in the movie, we were far too popular to be kicked off campus. I played a chaotic evil bard (I am a musician in real life) and when I achieved the 8th level, my dungeon master introduced me to the Real Power, and I began to invoke evil spirits to do my bidding through playing rock music… just like a classic D&D bard. I was inducted into the Unholy Order of Nessus and and gained forbidden knowledge of the Necronomicon. Later, I found Jesus and rejected my evil ways by attacking the darkness. Now my role-playing days are in the past and I use movies like Dark Dungeons to spread the truth about RPGs. Thank you for bringing my favorite Chick tract to life in glorious color.
