Movie Review – Hot Chicks

As reader Tim brought to my attention in the comments on Here, Kitty Kitty, there exists a compilation of nine short films ironically based on the works of Jack T. Chick, and it’s available for purchase on DVD. Obviously, I couldn’t resist, and I bought a copy as soon as I found out about it. I advise you all to do the same.

There are nine different Tract-inspired films, each roughly ten minutes in length: Bewitched?, La Princesita, Doom Town, Titanic, Angels?, Wounded Children, Party Girl, Cleo, and Somebody Goofed. The scripts follow the Tracts nearly verbatim, and the shots often replicate the panel layouts almost precisely. Of course, they’re all deliberately campy and melodramatic in such a way that emphasizes the absurdity of the Tracts themselves, and the result is hilarious. I strongly recommend this to everyone who enjoys the Chick Dissections.

There’s implication on the website that they’re working on a sequel. I’m feeling somewhat inspired and might consider trying to film a Tract myself, but I’m not yet sure which one it would be.

Anyway, see it.

  1. If you do a film Tract yourself, you have to include that little person from “Twin Peaks” in it somehow. That would
    be so not Jack. Wait, those kids from his Tracts sorta look
    like him already. Never mind……

  2. That site also has a YouTube version of “One Way!” made with kid’s toys.

    Four words; anatomically modified Ken doll. Iccck.

    Cool. I, too, am interested in ‘Wounded Children’ but cannot find it. Looking forward to that.
