Fallen Angels Unite!!

A. M. Jenkins
This is the delightful tale of a fallen angel who decides to possess the body of a slacker teen. Ever wonder if your friends are possessed?
Well, they just might be!
Kiriel is the fallen angel, and he is sick of torturing souls. It can get quite boring. So, he decides to come down to Earth and inhabit the body of Shaun, who is one of those guys who slips under the radar.
Turns out it's not so fun being human. Especially when you are the type of kid who isn't noticed.
Can a demon learn something from humans?

Movie recommendation

I had to recommend this one for all of you anime fans out there. Actually, you don't have to be a fan of anime at all to enjoy this one.
The director Satoshi Kon continues in his wonderful style of blending science fiction and reality. This one is based on a science fiction novel by noted Japanese author Yasutaka Tsutui. When a program that allows individuals to explore their own dreams is pirated, the results are mind blowing.
If you liked the Matrix, you will appreciate this one. It is Rated R, however, for one particularly unsettling death scene, so watch it with your parents.
