I saw this on Scream TV last fall. It just kept getting crazier and crazier. By the time El Santos showed up, it was out of control. Tons of fun.

Any movie with a character named "The screaming lesbian" can't be all bad.

And then there's Ultrachrist!, which also contains wrestling. And lesbians. How odd.
(full disclosure: I make an appearance as the undead Richard Nixon.)

Saw this last year. It's a hoot.

My buddy is in it for a fraction of a second as the atheist in the blue shirt whose face you don't see who Jesus slugs.

*vicarious fame*

It is very funny - but the funniest of all? I heard it had a budget of about $100 000 Canadian, and it still was that bad.

Yea - high kitch factor, middling entertainment, low quality.

"The third testament?"

Aw, c'mon, jb, this isn't the sort of film you go to expecting Quality. Anyway, I thought it was a blast (saw it back in 2001), and I'm definitely going to keep an eye out for Black Kissinger.
"His name's Kissinger, Henry Kissinger. No relation. He carries a badge, a gun - and a whole lot of attitude. How much attitude? Put it this way: you remember Shaft? Superfly? Action Jackson? Pussies.

I saw this movie when they held a screening at the major conference for the scholarly study of religion two years ago. Seriously.

My problem with the movie:
"Jesus Christ comes back as a martial artist to save the lesbians of Ottawa from vampires - and it has a Mexican wrestler in it!"

While that has to be the coolest one-line description of a movie ever, I didn't think there was really much that was interesting (or funny) there beyond the description. It's not that I wanted quality à la Casablanca or Hitchcock - I would have been plenty satisfied with the likes of Spaceballs or UHF. But this wasn't.

Everyone I know is in this movie, I think. Seriously. If you live in Ottawa, everyone you know is in this movie too.

It's wicked, though. Buy it.

From title and descriptions I'd read, I figured this had to be good. At least in a bad movie kinda way. It wasn't. Bored me to tears.

Bubba Ho-Tep - now that was good.

It would have worked better if Jesus had kept the Jesus look, or at least the hair.

Um...and maybe had better writing and acting - production values you can do without, but creative ones are essential. And I say this as someone who has watched many student films, and has an appreciation for both indie and B movies.

But I the dance numbers did have production values. I enjoyed it a lot.

i still say this is the best vampire hunting jesus christ based musical going around. it's like having seen star wars the musical (an MIT production), it doesn't matter if it's good, it matters that you saw it
