The Devil’s Playground: Big Screen Devilry for YOUR Launch Party

The Party is coming! The Party is coming!

I’m so into the fun of party planning that I decided the More Cowbell Mash-up of Launch Party links could wait until tomorrow. In case you’re asking, What Launch Party?….

The Worldwide Book Release Party for James Rollins’ new book, The Devil Colony, is starting in less than 24 hours at #DevilColony on Twitter.

Here at The Devil’s Playground, the iPod is loaded, the snacks are ready to rock and the movies are rented (with a toddler, parties just aren’t what they used to be!). The following are sitting on my DVD player right now:

We’ve already watched The Devil’s Advocate. Once again, my husband and I were mesmerized by Al Pacino’s acting in that “Fan of Man” speech. It’s about God and the Devil and the writing is so tremendous, I have to share it with you:

 What about you? Are those your favorite movies with “Devil” in the Title? Perhaps some of these are more your style:

  1. The Devil’s Backbone (2001) – Eduardo Noriega (written by Guillermo Del Toro)
  2. The Devil’s Tomb (2009) – Cuba Gooding, Jr.
  3. Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead (2007) – Ethan Hawke & Philip Seymour Hoffman
  4. The Devil’s Own (1997) – Harrison Ford & Brad Pitt
  5. The Devil’s Rejects (2005) Bill Moseley & Sid Haig (Horror)
  6. Ride With the Devil (1999) – Tobey Maguire & Skeet Ulrich
  7. Dust Devil (1992) – Director, Richard Stanley
  8. The Devil Rides Out (1968) – Christopher Lee & Charles Gray
  9. Race With the Devil (1975) – Peter Fonda, Warren Oates & Loretta Swit
  10. The Doctor & The Devils (1985) – Timothy Dalton & Twiggy (no kidding…)
  11. To the Devil a Daughter (1976) – Christopher Lee & Nastassja Kinski (really??)
  12. The Devil’s Rain (1975) – Ernest Borgnine, William Shatner & Eddie Albert
  13. Shout at the Devil (1976) – Roger Moore (see he wasn’t just James Bond!)

It seems fitting to end a devilish movie list on #13, don’t you think? 🙂

What about you? Any fa-a-a-avorite movies on board this week? Any must-visit Book Launch hot spots I need to include in tomorrow’s mash-up? Have you started taking pictures already?

See you tomorrow with a FULL summary of party places for the HUGE event on #DevilColony!

  1. Could there be a better devil than Al? Well, Jack Nicholson might be a tie for it. 😀

    A couple of my favorites is Rosemary’s Baby and The Witches of Eastwick.

    See ya at the party!


    • Jenny Hansen says:

      Angela, do you know after all this time, I’ve never seen Rosemary’s Baby?? The Witches of Eastwick should definitely be on the list, even without Devil in the title. Probably I should have included the Exorcist too. 🙂


  3. Jen Greyson says:

    Ooh, the Devil’s Advocate was good and creepy!! Devil wears Prada is probably my favorite off your list.
    Getting my devil on!


    • Jenny Hansen says:

      My girlfriend, who is MAD for shoes, almost wet her pants in the theater when they showed those racks and racks of shoes. I’ll never forget that scene because of it. Literally, she had to hold herself back from leaping toward the screen. It was hilarious.

      I LOVE that you’re getting your devil on.

  6. The Devil Wears Prada. 🙂 Not a horror fan because they give me nightmares.


  7. I just watched the movie, Devil….where everyone gets stuck in the elevator with the Devil and die one by one….yea, it’s not that great; but, I kept watching!


    • Jenny Hansen says:

      Oh my God, I just can’t watch stuff like that? Seriously, the Freddie Krueger movies almost scared me to death. The one where his arm got all those suckers on them? *shudders* Gruesome!
