Really one of my all time faves. The slow, almost non-existent dialog makes for great riffing. Just caught caught the "BOOZE" reference from "Spider Invasion." Love this one.

Y'know, despite the riff or two they make about it, I never quite picked up on something until recently... They live on a walnut ranch... and as such you can justify not seeing any animals on the place. But then why do they have so much hay around the place? I mean I guess they might farm hey on the side, but they never mention it. Anyone else think they just needed them to do something farm-y and moving hay was all they could think of?

I would say that Crow's comment about a "hip Satan who solves crimes" is prophetic, considering Fox's recent Lucifer series; but I suppose it more likely proves that network TV just steals its ideas for new shows by watching old TV.

So the Antagonists in the movie are the mob of superstitious townsfolk and the good guy is the kind and merciful Satan who answers prayers for help. What a strange twist.

I've always thought it's hilarious that she uses the fact that she knows the mob sang Amazing Grace as proof of his dream, instead of, y'know, the fact that she knew about his dream in the first place. And he's still not convinced.

Definitely a darker tone to the films selected in the later Mike years when they started riffing more horror films, and became less of an all-ages program, which I think you could say about the Joel years for the most part.

This movie always confused me, because the opening riffs during the extended title sequence imply that the guy in the car is the devil. So then I got all confused about which one was in fact beezlebob.

Okay, so what I don't get about this movie: the whole point of the end is that the "hero" is going to free the girl from her pact with Satan so that he doesn't have any power over her anymore. He does that and she gets old and starts to die. Who was surprised that Satan tricked her? ...and then, he turns around and binds them BOTH to Satan so that she doesn't die. WHAT WAS THE POINT OF FREEING HER, THEN?

...or did I miss something?

Ha, ha, ha, well, now that we have all had a good long laugh at the expense of walnut farmers, The Walnut Growers Association would like to remind you that the characters and events depicted in this film were fictional and do not represent the vast majority of walnut growers. Only a small percentage of walnut farms, perhaps 15%-25%, 40% tops, have young daughters who are in fact 120 year old satanic witches with a brunt to a crisp but still living sister witch who indiscriminately pitchfork’s to death innocent townsfolk. You simply cannot condemn the hard working walnut grower’s community as a whole for the actions of a few bad nuts (ha, ha, ha). Thank you for your attention and remember to keep buying and eating walnuts, The Dark One commands it!

Fun Fact: It's actually possible to make walnut liquor. In Italy, it's called Nocino and in France it's called Vin de Noix. I just felt like sharing that. If anyone decides to invent the "Touch of Satan" cocktail, I guess one of these could be your base. L'Chaim! :D

Mormo
In Greek mythology, Mormo (Greek: Μορμώ, Μορμών, Mormō) was a spirit who bit bad children, said to have been a companion of the goddess Hecate. The name was also used to signify a female vampire-like creature in stories told to Greek children by their nurses to keep them from misbehaving. This reference is primarily found in some of the plays of Aristophanes.[1][2] He is also referenced in The Alexiad, which goes to show that Mormo was still taught to children during Byzantine times.
orgo
Gorgo may refer to:

Another name for the Gorgon
Gorgo (film), a 1961 movie, or its protagonist, the fictional giant monster Gorgo
Gorgo, Queen of Sparta, 5th-century B.C. Queen of Sparta, daughter of Cleomenes and wife of Leonidas I
681 Gorgo, an asteroid
Gorgo, a former brush-footed butterfly genus now included in Erebia.

So, not really names for the Devil. More associated with
Hecate
Hecate or Hekate (ancient Greek Ἑκάτη, Hekátē, pronounced /ˈhɛkətiː/ or /ˈhɛkət/[1] in English) is a chthonic Greco-Roman goddess associated with magic and crossroads.
Just in case you were curious.

The weird thing is that she says "This is where the fish lives", not "This is where the fish live". So she's implying that a single, lone fish lives in that pond, and she's familiar with it.
