How come no one ever thought to do this?


Bury the canister in 100 feet of solid concrete? Or place it onto a rocket and launch it into deep space? Or drop it into a nuclear reactor?

No, let's just keep the scary green liquid swirling in the creepy canister locked away in the even creepier basement of the really creepy church, surrounded by all of the creepy homeless/soulless people. That's a much better idea!

So how many rockets or nuclear reactors do you have access to?

You got 100 feet of concrete lying around?

Let's be bad guys.

reply

At present, 2 rockets and 1 reactor.

As far as concrete is concerned, yes, I do.

Any other questions?

I just re-watched the film and, in fact, characters explicitly propose both of the first two options that you suggest

reply

Seriously?

I don't remember that, but now I'll have to watch it again.

What was the approximate time mark when it's said ?

It's fairly early on, or perhaps midway through, when they've set up their equipment in the church and begun researching it, but when most of the deaths/transformation haven't happened yet. The comments are voiced in the church's main floor, not below -- three characters sitting at a table, as I recall.

reply

Maybe I heard it at on sub-conscious level... I'll re-watch it again, though, still, because it is one of the creepiest demonic/satanic movies I've ever seen.

reply

Ah ha. So it's your fault for hogging all the spare rockets and concrete.

Ya never know when you'll need things like this.

The fluid existed a while

Did rockets and nuclear reactors even exist?

Aldo if it's super natural couldn't it escape somehow?

reply

The fluid existed for a while, yes, but in the latter part of the 20th century, the priests could have reached out to SOMEONE for help, much like Father Loomis did.

Now, it's been my personal experience, dealing with Satan, that he's not really a bad guy. He's just got bad press.

True that

Knowing a bit about him myself I doubt they could have gotten rid of him if he wanted to stay ;)

reply

If anyone did that, then the screenwriters would have to be innovative to find a way to get the goo out of captivity and into a position where it could start wreaking havoc.

Requiescat in pace, Krystle Papile. I'll always miss you. Justice was finally served.

reply

I wonder what it would have been like to nail that chick Lisa when she on the goo....

reply

Should have dropped it into a live bubbling volcano. Or deep freeze it with liquid nitrogen.

reply

you would have thought the Spanish priests would have been smart enough to take it to a volcano and throw it in.

One of the first things I said when Susan (radiologist... glasses) said it contained a locking mechanism that could only be opened from the inside was, "Maybe you should add another lock on the outside."

reply

In order to do what the first poster said, you need to leave the church; something that was impossible with all those wackos outside.
