Jackie Prucha has been around for a while as an actress, but just recently came into light with what some may consider the role of a lifetime as Miss Pat in Dangerous Calling (2008, Josh Daws, Jeremiah Daws). Unfortunately every church has one of these in one form or another, which is why I am personally not a Christian. You know the kind of old woman I mean. The busybody like Church Lady on Saturday Night Live, with or without the humor. 

 

In Dangerous Calling, Miss Pat goes beyond the normal church bitty. She doesn’t like the pastor, so we later find out, she sets his parsonage on fire and fries him. Then as the movie gets going, she finds she dislikes the new pastor and his wife even less, so you can figure what happens next.

 

Miss Pat is the most screwed up Christian fanatic and mother this side of the insane Margaret White as played by Piper Laurie decades ago in Carrie (1976, Brian De Palma).

 

Sadly, Dangerous Calling didn’t get the distribution it deserved, at least for now, but those who have caught her performance are sold on her. It says a lot when I find myself forgetting I am watching a movie and yell at the screen “Kill that bitch!” What greater compliment might an actor or actress have than to be told someone can forget what is being viewed is a performance and become so molded with the film, it becomes a momentary reality!

 

With me this has only happened twice before. Once was when Michael Madsen’s evil Mr. Blond gets offed in Reservoir Dogs (1992, Quentin Tarantino) and when Lee Van Cleef outguns Indio in Per Qualche Dollaro in Piu/For A Few Dollars More (1965, Sergio Leone).

 

While Miss Pat remains totally psychotic and totally repulsive, with no refined features whatsoever, the actress bringing this role to life remains a friendly and easy-going person, totally unlike the role.

 

The truly scary part is how believable her part is, for history has seen many such church women psychos in real life, just a bizarre and as extreme as her character, only playing for keeps. Case in point is how every few years it makes the news where some whacked up and out woman kills her kids on orders from “God” and makes no bones about it.

 

Other roles this actress has seen include parts in the Last Adam (2006, Edford Banuel jr), The Way Home (2010, Lance W.Dreesen), Death of Seasons (2006, Chance White), Return of the Jackalope (2006, Michael D.Friedman, Dave R.Watkins).

 

Still, the Miss Pat role stands out beyond others.

 

“They ran this film in some churches,” commented Andre van Heerden of Cloud Ten Pictures, the company that picked up distribution for this film and due to their connections should help gain it some of the  attention it deserves. “On the scene where she gets punched out by the hero, people in the church, including many Christians in the audience actually cheered.”

 

Though originally intended as an edgy “faith based” vehicle, there seems to be an effort to take this movie into the secular world and play off its horror elements, which might be a wise thing, for unlike those sappy-assed Billy Graham born-againers films, this one might push the real church people a little too far in the wrong way. There are reportedly some efforts to enter the movie in some secular horror fests and see what results.

 

Prucha deserves more attention than she has evidently gotten. Maybe this article will help.
