Tonight's Forecast : 100% Chance of Evil with "The Devil's Rain"!

Posted on by

Tonight on MeTV- it will be a dark and stormy night for sure, as members of a valiant family continue to wage a centuries old battle between good and evil-and try to avoid a deluge of devilish disaster brought on by “The Devil’s Rain”!

First of all, a warning- there are scenes in this film that may be too gruesome and upsetting for some of our younger and more sensitive viewers- so, your discretion is advised. We also need to point out-because we always get a few misguided complaints- though the subject matter includes devil worship- we are not advocating or supporting that. (Let’s face it- our movies pretty much every week contain killings- and we don’t advocate murder!)

On to our story- on a nasty Southwestern night, the Preston family is concerned about their missing patriarch- and all too soon, we see that their concern is warranted! The Prestons have been the target of an evil cult since their ancestors’ betrayal years ago of a satanic high priest- and because they are now keeping hidden a book that would give the devilish leader great and deadly power. After a raid on the family ranch, Preston son Mark takes it upon himself to meet with the wily cult leader Jonathan Corbis at his ghost town headquarters in the desert. This encounter brings Mark into the midst of the cult, and into a battle of faith that proves too much for him.

We meet more of the Preston family- Mark’s brother Tom and his wife Julie. Julie appears to have psychic powers that show her confusing and frightening scenes of the past and the future- which psychic researcher Dr. Sam Richards tries to help them decipher. The couple decides to search for missing brother Mark- and their search centers on that ghost town-and soon they are under attack, and become witnesses to a black arts ritual that will induct the Prestons into the ranks of Corbis’ minions! The fight continues over the sources of Corbis powers and his transformation into a hellish deity who plans to create Hell on earth!

This 1975 film boasts a big name cast- Ernest Borgnine, William Shatner, Eddie Albert, Ida Lupino, Tom Skerritt and more-yes, and one performer who barely appears in the film but will become a huge box office name! We’ll tell you about them all, along with some of the strange details of the film’s production, and, although the film’s length limits our Sven content in the show, include a new song and an interview with a significant cast member of the original “Halloween”!

“The Devil’s Rain” begins to fall at 8 pm eastern/pacific, 7 central time tonight. We continue to trend among the top national Tweeted topics on Twitter every week- and you are invited to join in and live-Tweet during the program, using the hashtag #svengoolie. In the Chicago viewing area, local viewers get a sort of rematch as we encore “King Kong VS Godzilla” on CW 26 at 11 am.

Okay- in spite of the huge inventory we procured for the Sven bobblehead, they are selling rapidly enough that you need to order yours NOW before they sell out! It would also be a good idea to make your choices now in the Sventa Claus Holiday Shoppe, and in our usual store, to make sure you’ll be able to get your gift choices in time for the holidays!

We hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving- and we thank you in advance for joining us tonight for the devilish doings!

Checking in! It has been a crazy week here. Here is the scoop: My stomach issues last month were gallbladder and common bile duct problems. Tests Monday and Tuesday led to meeting a surgeon Wednesday and outpatient surgery today. It went well! I am resting comfortably in our recliner. Even so, I may not be up later to vie for my usual top-ten spot.

Thanks, TKK! My procedures were done laproscopically, which should make for a shorter recovery. So far, so GOOD!

Ha! Four incisions, just like me!

Has Sven shown a movie called INVADERS FROM MARS? It's from 1986 and started Karen black Hunter Carson Laraine Newman Timothy Bottoms James Karen Louise Fletcher Bud Cort and Jimmy Hunt
Klaatu MADave 8 months ago
As much as the 1986 version is watchable, IMO the better version, especially for the Sven schtick, would be the early 50’s version.
Carl_N_Brown MADave 8 months ago
I am not finding INVADERS FROM MARS (either the 1953 William Cameron Menzies original or the 1986 Tobe Hooper remake) in the published lists of Svengoolie movies.
Islander MADave 8 months ago
Don't believe he has. Both versions are really good. I slightly favor the original but I enjoy watching both on dvd.
Carl_N_Brown MADave 8 months ago
Jimmy Hunt played the kid David in the 1953 version and played the Police Chief in the 1986 version.
Drang MADave 8 months ago
Another good one for Sven with Bud Cort in it would be Love at Stake.
MrsG Carl_N_Brown 8 months ago
Aha , Juicy bit of trivia there Carl_N_Brown ~ now I want to see the oldie !
