Storyline

Traveling Route 66, a charismatic preacher, Reverend Johnny Jones, and his seductively beautiful Latina girlfriend, Rebecca, find their lives spiraling out of control as they travel from small town to small town; running their scam on the churches they encounter along the mother road. He's able to convince people he has the power to heal their illnesses and solve their most dreadful life experiences. But what the couple think is their scam begs the question does he really have the power? It's a question that haunts him and only intensifies his inner demons. Scarred for life, his childhood abuse from his evil father won't soon go away. He finds temporary refuge at the bottom of each bottle of tequila and endless grams of cocaine that goes up his nose. His childhood demons will not subside, neither will his vices. In the end, his powers serve as a blessing and a curse. Hang on tight while we follow this perilous couple's journey into the abyss of miracles and tragedy. Written by Norman McGuire

Yikes, this is a sick movie and one of the strangest I've ever watched
22 January 2018 | by shelleycatheySee all my reviews

THE GOOD - This is so stylishly-filmed it's unbelievable. The wild camera techniques - quick flashes, sudden changes from color to devil red, distorted sound bytes, shakey camera shots, wild colors and symbolic images, distorted sound bytes - are all fascinating to watch. Then there's the crazy story, which ranges from really good to really bad The two leads, "Rev Jones and Rebecca" are kinda co-dependent on one another. He likes his drugs, and she likes her style and shopping habits. He struggles keeping the cash flow going for his drug addiction and her Gucci purses, and some damn boots she mentions a thousand times. THE BAD NEWS - The drug use in this movie is OVER THE TOP. WOW. The actor who plays Rev. Jones either did a lot of cocaine or endured the pain of snorting a lot of baking soda. Painful to watch sometimes. You can just see it in his face. Then there is the performance of Rebecca, she struggled to nail the character. The Preacher carried the movie.
