I Am Here is an ultra-low budget sci-fi/religious film directed by real estate agent Neil Breen. It's already drawing comparisons to cult classic The Room and has the same no-money style as Birdemic and the films of Damon Packard. Is I Am Here set to follow Larry Clark's God Told Me To in the pantheon of alien-Jesus films?

This made me shout "Best of the web!" completely unsarcastically!

This needs to be riffed and become a subculture.

Room-watching parties are fun, but I always thought it lacked the cheesy special effects of the old bad movies. Hopefully this will live up to the trailer

BTW, I bet a billion fictional dollars this will be better than I Am Number Four in every way.

Now that's a bet I'm willing to take!

heh, well played.

I only noticed because I'm a fan of Larry Clark, and got all excited that he had directed an alien-jesus flick that somehow passed me by. I don't know who Larry Cohen is but the movie sounds somewhat interesting -anyone seen it? Opinions?

If it makes you feel any better, Larry Clark did direct Teenage Caveman.

Oh, also, this movie looks completely amazing and bananas.

He edited a film I was in (hope this doesn't break any rules). I'll post it on Projects when it's finished.

Half of it is genuinely good horror, including some amazing shots in the middle of a New York parade with Andy Kaufman. Half of it is just pure WTF weirdness. So see it

The guy is playing the Jesus role here is reminding me of a parallel-universe 'good guy' version of every Henry Silva villain from the 70's and 80's.

We got a pony and we taught him to eat mud. Baby, baby he drink more blood.

I'm not sure it's a good thing,

I'm pretty sure, I found something better than lying in your arms now baby.
I'm pretty sure, you aint my drag queen dope dealer.

I like how everything has blood on it. A hypodermic (somehow), eyeballs, circuit boards. I'm imagining the director: "Just put a bunch of blood on everything--that's how Serious this movie is."

No love here for Gravity: The Shadow of Joseph by Richard Gazowsky ("Star Wars meets The Ten Commandments")? Admittedly it never got made, but the backstory and attempts to film it are portrayed in the excellent documentary Audience of One.

I love how in the title, there are four periods. Ellipses are usually rendered with just three. But that fourth period ... so visionary.

I wonder if this could be thought of as a futuristic sequel to Jesus Christ: Vampire Hunter.
