Want to celebrate the lack of a Rapture with some humor? Get “Rapture-Palooza,” which will arrive on Blu-ray(plus Digital UltraViolet), DVD (plus Digital Ultraviolet) and Digital Download Aug. 20 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.
The film comes from the writer of “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure” and the producers of “Bad Teacher” and includes a hilarious cast including Craig Robinson (TV’s “The Office,” “Hot Tub Time Machine”), Anna Kendrick (“Pitch Perfect,” “Twilight” saga), John Francis Daley (TV’s “Bones,” TV’s “Freaks and Geeks”), Rob Corddry (“Warm Bodies,” “Hot Tub Time Machine”) and Ana Gasteyer (TV’s “Saturday Night Live,” “Mean Girls”).
“Rapture-Palooza” shows what could happen after the folks left behind after the Rapture are left to fend for themselves:
“When the apocalypse actually happens and a billion people are raptured to heaven, Lindsey (Kendrick) and her boyfriend Ben (Daley) are left behind in suburban Seattle. Amidst talking locusts, blood rain showers and pot-smoking wraiths, the young couple attempts to live a normal, everyday life. When the Anti-Christ (Robinson) settles down in their neighborhood things quickly take a turn for the worse, especially after Lindsey finds herself as the object of Satan’s affection. With the help of family, friends and a lawn-mowing zombie, the duo set off to stop the Devil from taking an unwilling bride and they may just save the world in the process.”
The Blu-ray and DVD includes special featuers such as an audio commentary with Craig Robinson, Rob Corddry and Rob Huebel, deleted scenes, a gag reel and a featurette called “It’s Good to Be the Beast.”
