Ms. Monaghan's best known work in a genre film is 2011 Source Code.
Prediction: 2013: The President’s daughter steals the launch codes for a doomsday weapon and is taken to Los Angeles Island, now a concentration camp for those who do not follow the laws of the theocracy of the United States.
Predictor: Escape From L.A. 1996
Reality: There hasn't been an earthquake that turned Los Angeles into an island, the United States is not a theocracy, we aren't sending citizens off to concentration camps.
But on the plus side, the president does have a daughter. That part of the prediction is just uncanny.
Looking one day ahead... INTO THE FUTURE!
Some people in 1988 actually thought Los Angeles would NOT be a post-apocalyptic hellhole. Let's see if they can do better than John Carpenter.
Join me then... IN THE FUTURE!
