Storyline

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 Lee Demarbre <leedemarbre@rogers.com>

Where have all the good lesbians gone?
1 November 2005 | by bergma15@msu.eduSee all my reviews

Jesus Christ is back, and this time he's out to kick some ass. Local priests in Canada decide to get the help of the savior when lesbians go missing. Jesus promptly swings into action by up dating his appearance. He gets some earrings, a hair cut, and some thrift store threads. Assisted by Mary Magnum and El Santo, he battles atheists and the undead (who can now go out in the sun, but I won't tell you why). The movie is packed with kung fu, some splatter, but no nudity (with all those lesbians one would thing, huh?) This little pick seems to be OK in spite of itself. You can tell that the people making it were out for total spoof value and really just wanted to have a good time. The only problem I saw with it is some mad priest, ala Rasputin, who in inexplicably shows up to narrate or give an intro into the next part. What his role was, I have no frigging idea.

Otherwise, it's out here for all of you bad movie fans.
