The first testament says "an eye for an eye." The second testament says "love thy neighbour." The third testament KICKS ASS! The filmmaking team that brought you Harry Knuckles and won the "Spirit of Slamdance" prize with Harry Knuckles and the Treasure of the Aztec Mummy ups the ante with this tale of the ultimate action hero: Jesus Christ. The second coming is upon us, and Jesus has returned to earth. But before he can get down to the serious business of judging the living and the dead, he has to contend with an army of vampires that can walk in the daylight. Combining kung-fu action with biblical prophecy and a liberal dose of humour, the film teams the Savior with Mexican wrestling hero El Santos against mythological horrors and science gone mad, and also manages to address contemporary sexual politics. And did we mention that it's a musical? This sure ain't Sunday School. Written by

Its the story that the NEW Testament was scared to tell, baby and its Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter the number one movie in the religion/kung fu/lesbian/vampire genre of the year 2001.
It has all the great characters from the Bible, namely Jesus Christ. Not the whiny cry-baby Jesus from that Passion movie that gets his butt kicked. This is the true Jesus, the kung fu SUPER MESSIAH that takes names and kicks those butts.
The Vampires have started to kill and skin lesbians to use their skins so they can walk around in the daylight and only one person (or rather one MESSIAH) can kick those vampires butts.
The Holy One also has to take out some kung fu atheists along the way and he does so with the gusto that would make Bruce Lee PROUD!!
Its not a family film, I mean your church going Momma might have a full blown coronary during the credits but the kids will love it.
