description: Having just watched 'mother!', a horror-thriller by Darren Aronofsky, I was inspired to do the opposite of what Aronofsky had accomplished in his film.

Instead of utilizing the story of The Bible as a basis for his movie, I instead re-imagined Bible verses through lines of the screenplay - with interesting results.

More specifically, I took common Bible verses and for each word in the verse, I would find a corresponding line from the 'Mother!' screenplay that contained the exact word. This resulted in random mini-scripts that often had a nonsensical narrative.
