The Supernaturals Reviews
This is the first time I saw Union Civil War Soldiers acting mean: A little boy Evan is strolling through a "War of Northern Aggression" (the Southern name for The Civil War) and puts-on the gray uniform of a dead Confederate Soldier.
A Union Soldier CATCHES HIM and orders Evan and other captured Confederate Soldiers to walk across a mine field . . . EVAN'S MOTHER suddenly breaks loose from the crowd of spectators and is BLOWN-UP by a mine.
Evan possesses psychic power to raise the dead and raises his mother from the dead.
a hundred and 120 years later Evan's Mom BADGERS Evan into raising the dead bodies of Confederate soldiers to KILL a platoon of modern soldiers on a training mission in the deep south.
I haven't seen this in 25 years . . . BUT I'm sure I still LOVE it!!!!!
but again YOU GUYS will probably hate it . . . today's audience is IMPOSSIBLE to please it seems especially when the film is "a hundred years old from the 1980s" and only available on VHS . . .and not on DVD.
I just watched THE SUPERNATURALS again last night
Evan's widow is named MELANIE and Private Ellis is Evan reincarnated (sort of)--but . . . I was dealing with past lives and Melanie (a girl so named, it was like she and I shared very similar experiences or hold very similar attitudes and responses towards things.)
JEREMY is THE BOY at the beginning of the movie and Melanie and Evan's gifted son.
It's STRIPES meets PLATOON meets Night of the Living Dead meets Gettysburg you'd say
