Failed filmmaker Zachary Wells is convinced by his best friend and hotshot director Topher into replacing him as a judge in their film school's annual festival. Zach's one-night stand with a student backfires when that student walks into an interview the next morning calling himself Danny Reyes, the name Zach went by when he attended the school. And Danny's film, "Judas Kiss," is a finalist in the competition Zach is judging. Zach's film, also "Judas Kiss," won the festival years before. As Zach scrambles for answers, a mysterious, chain-smoking campus tour guide, counsels him: "Change the kid's past, change your future." But how? Zach comes to believe he can mend his life by disqualifying Danny from competition, putting him on a different path than Zach followed. But will Zach's plan work? Written by Carlos Pedraza

I whole heartedly recommend this movie to all!
9 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

I hope everyone has a chance to see this "fresh" movie. It is so refreshing to see a movie that infers no sexual labeling. While Judas Kiss has a "gay" edge to it, the movie does not wear it's sexual orientation on it's sleeve. It represents life as it should be, this story just happens to have gay characters in it. Real life should be so represented. Judas Kiss has it all, drama, humor, emotion, special effects, and most of all it makes you think. The different aspects of the movie are tied together by parentage. By that I mean each one of the scenes that are acted and portrayed very well, needed a parental hand to bring them together. Zachary/Danny are constantly challenged through out, but are always kept in line by the parental figures such as Old Man Welds, and the incomparable Mrs. Blossom, played by Laura Kinney, my favorite character by the way. I am not sure the main characters would have made the necessary transitions needed in the script, without the parentage.

This movie has some very "hot" young stars as well. The entire cast was well thought out and portrayed, and I give major kudos to Director J.T. Tepnapa, Producer Carlos Pedraza, and Cinematographer Dave Berry, for their attention to details. I mean how can you go wrong with the University of Washington (Keystone University) as a backdrop! All in all, this movie pulls it all together at the right time and in the right spots, while still driving home it's message. It was entertaining, visually a home run, and I believe it has the potential to become a classic in it's own right and time. For me it was a must see, and it should be on your immediate "Bucket List" as well. Great Job everyone!
