Great, Facinating, Darkly Comedic Expose' On Extreme Right-Wing Religion
7 November 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie during it's first theatriacal release in 1987. I must admit, my main purpose for going was to see Exene Cervenka act in a film, as I had only previously know her as the lead singer from the alternative-punk rock band "X". This movie is simply fantastic. It holds no punches when it comes to busting open the facade of hate disguised as love, exposing the backstabbing bigotry so often found hiding behind the snow white veil of Christianity. Personally, I found it's message to be profoundly funny, yet sadly truthful at the same time. A very unique work, indeed. I highly recommend this film to any and all people who are not afraid to open their minds in order to take a look at the side of Christianity no one wants to acknowledge or talk about. I believe you'll find it very rewarding.

The movie, written by Beth B. and Tom Robinson and also directed by Beth B. herself, is a true work of art. I look forward to the day this film is made available on DVD for the world to see. The material focused on is medicine the United States could definitely use RIGHT NOW!

"Bless the Baby Jesus!"
