My eyes grew wider, my jaw dropped lower …

Dear George, why did you star in this … production? What were you on? What did the producers have on you?

I saw JM for sale for $5 at my local discount DVD store weeks ago and avoided purchasing it for fear that it would be utter @&$#. Last week I relented and purchased it instead of a Big Mac ™ and Fries ™. I am so glad I did!

George Kennedy narrates this quazi documentary with a look of perpetual horror on his face. Understandably he would have been terrified of family members and friends viewing him making an idiot out of himself.

JM is an astounding mix of religious rantings and questionable scientific evidence. Strange psychics, gun-tottin' survivalists and neo-christian lunatics are all interviewed about their ‘theories' about the end of the world. Some of these ‘people' are seriously insane.

For lovers of the truly bizarre, I highly recommend JM. It is one of the strangest shows I have ever seen. I'm actually wondering whether the film is actually a serious documentary or a clever and convincing spoof about the lunatic fringe.

JM is a fantastic film to watch with friends. Guaranteed to make you laugh, make you gasp, make you cry: What the?!

6/10
