Susan Saint James,
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

This movie sure is pretty enjoyable, but you have to really love your b-movies. It's extremely amateurish, the 16 mm look, the acting, the effects, everything. Still, it looks like a bunch of friends had a great time making it, which has an undeniable charm.
But here's the thing. Try describing it to a friend. Whether you just explain the premise, or get into a specific scene, it will without a doubt sound like the coolest movie ever made. The title, Santos, loads of lesbians, punk priests, the Star Wars Scat, a fully choreographed musical number, it all sounds fantastic.
Basically, while it could never live up to it's description, it's definitely worth a look. But please, don't take my word for it, just watch it and judge for yourself.
