Saturday night I prepared for my little adventure to watch The Book of Vile Darkness on SyFy. My preparation wasn’t all that special. Acquire beer. Drink several then drink more through the movie. I’ll try to keep this as spoiler free as possible but really it’s not like it’s really that intriguing.
Here’s the basic plot. Wanna-be young knight/paladin type rescues father who was kidnapped by evil dudes. Evil dudes want to milk the father for Liquid Pain to rewrite the Book of Vile Darkness and plunge the world into evil darkness times. The hero joins up with a party of evil Shadar-kai to lead him to his father. Along the way, he does bad things to maintain his cover as just a sell sword. In the end, he saves his father and the world.
Book of Vile Darkness continues the tradition of meh dialog, acting and plot. I never really felt anything for any of the characters. It was bland just like the characters. The worst part is that it wasn’t so bad that it was good. It was just bad enough to annoying. TO be honest, I’d rather watch the first one and laugh my ass off than this one.
Here’s the trailer
