Three women with mysterious pasts, a nerdy boy, a company man, and Jesus Christ himself all plunge into an absurdist nightmare when a giant and magical prism descends upon planet Earth and warps reality. Featuring Lloyd Kaufman, Blondie's Matt Katz-Bohen, and a special appearance by indie superstar Mac DeMarco.

This is a Disck film who make bad films, mixed with Troma who also makes bad films. It is a cult film not for everyone and not for me. The film looks at the lives of Margaret East (Sofe Cote) and May West (Sara Kaiser) as reality becomes blurred due to the crystal which was not very dark (Dark Crystal already taken.) There is talk of aliens, the devil, hell, and souls. Part of the film is in black and white. The camera angels were all bad and they could brag they never used a tripod. The acting was horrible. They introduce characters in the beginning using a hard to read calligraphy font which is not kept on the screen long enough to decipher.The story line was hectic.
Now the writers created some clever metaphors, however the execution of the production wiped out any atta-boys.
Terrible. There's the summary. It was horribly acted, and the plot was along the same lines. There were no scares, and trust me the nudity is not something you want. Unless you like middle aged topless hippie chicks. (insert shudder here) The 'narriator' i guess is what he would be called sat there and read from the script during the movie. Come on guys, you can watch his eyes to follow along the page... and seriously, read through it once before it goes on film, he looked like a 3rd grader trying to read the Grapes of Wrath. The second part (of 3) is very confusing. I would say straight up blasphemy, but since you can't understand what is going on, i will just chalk it up to a junior high attempt at recording something they would refer to as a 'movie'. The only redeeming quality of the movie was the 4 seconds of Stephanie Domini in a bra. That's it, really. The rest is junk.

DARK PRISM is an independent sci-fi/horror production that I had the misfortune to view on Amazon Prime. Occasionally there'll be a semi-decent independent feature on offer on that website but not so here; this is very poor indeed, purely because it's so badly written and confusing.
Instead of going down the blood-and-guts exploitation route, the writers of this multi-strand effort try to offer something complex, psychological, and genre-bending; the result is completely obtuse from start to finish. The action is staged very poorly, the acting is quite appalling, and some stock footage from old Troma movies is incongruously inserted into the middle of the production just when you thought it couldn't get any more bizarre. I don't know what the intention was here, but it certainly doesn't work.
