Let's Talk About Jesus...and Horror Movies

If anyone is interested in listening to Christ-centered, unashamedly Lutheran radio, I have a couple of recommendations for you.

First of all, check us out at "Let's Talk About Jesus." That's the Sunday night radio program on which I am a regular guest with host, Rev. Don Matzat, aired here in Pittsburgh on WORD-FM.

And secondly, I will be interviewed next Wednesday (May 11) from 5:00-5:30 p.m. eastern, on the KFUO radio program "Issues, Etc." in St. Louis about my recent article in Higher Things magazine on the topic of horror movies.

Nice - I'm the film reviewer from the UK Newspaper 'The Baptist Times' and would be interested in your thoughts on Horror Films - can you get that radio show via the net?

Also I'm actually quite a fan of horror / dark movies which a lot of my church friends find odd...

Hello. What part of the UK are you from? I've been to England a couple of times. And yes, the "Issues, Etc." program is streamed on the internet. I don't think they store everything in the archives however, so one should probably try to catch it live. That's 5 p.m., Pittsburgh time, next Wed. And the link to KFUO in my post should get you where you need to be. I did write a little essay on horror films which I link to in my post as well. God bless.

Pastor Stiegemeyer, KFUO also does Podcasting of the Issues Etc. if you want I can copy the mp3's for you once they are podcasted.

Pastor Scott Stiegemeyer said...

Hi Michael. Do I have to have an IPod to play the mp3 or will any mp3 player do it? I have one, but I really don't know how to use it too well.

Michael P. O'Connor said...

No you don't need an iPod, it will download the mp3 and place it where you want, it is nice to have an iPod, but not needed.

Good work on the article...I liked it. Are you going to be in STL for the Higher Things youth gathering this summer? If I can get away for a bit, I'll buy you a Lutheran drink or something. :)

Pastor Scott Stiegemeyer said...

Yes, I am going to be there. I'm doing an extended sectional on religion and pop culture. Where are you from? And Lutheran beverages are my fav.

Pastor S....

I was thinking about your horror movie article. Isn't every story (or movie with a plot), in some way or another, reflective of "THE STORY" (by that I mean our salvation in Christ)?

Military stories - Christ defeats our foe.
Love stories - He takes his bride the church.
Courtroom dramas - We are declared "not guilty"
Comedy, even - (at least in the classic sense) the "unexpected" ending

Ok, well, not every movie. But a lot of them. Timeless, archetypical themes involving conflict and resolution. I was just chewing on how these might all be related to? rooted in? reflective of? the ULTIMATE plot.

I once read there are only 7 basic plot conflicts or something like that. I can only remember a few. What do you think?
