An eclectic cast of characters intertwines and collides around themes of faith, religion and race in a small East Texas town. Screen Door Jesus tells the story of the church-going, but not exactly God-fearing, town's folk who wake up one morning to discover the image of Jesus on Old Mother Harper's screen door. With media and crowds gathering around the phenomenon, and Jesus staring everyone straight in the face, it's time for people to take sides. Written by Anonymous

Overtold, but has entertainment value.. Most do not know it's based on a true story
19 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was 10 years old when my sister took me to see the image of Jesus head on the screen door in Port Neches Tx in 1969. There were a lot of people forming a human fence around the house. We didn't have to pay anything, but then again it was a new phenomenon. I don't remember any hysterics and i was never sure whether I believed it was real or not. In one of my picture albums I have an old Polaroid of the door with the image. I never knew the film was out until one night I could not sleep and I was channel surfing. Brought back a lot of memories. If it was real and a sign... Why didn't anything ever come of it? Several years later the lady that owned the house died and the image disappeared. The movie? Eh
