Trivia

Director Darren Lynn Bousman has stated that he is a big fan of the film Jesus Christ Superstar (1973) and it's one of the movies that made him want to be a director. Because of this, not only did he cast Ted Neely (the actor who played Jesus in Jesus Christ Superstar) as The Publicist, but he also included a short cameo from Barry Dennen (Pontius Pilate in Jesus Christ Superstar) in the film, as a Denizen of Heaven that is briefly seen with The Publicist.

Interesting!
4 August 2016 | by redanhemmaSee all my reviews

I've been looking forward to this ever since I saw the first movie. It was definitely good, I thoroughly enjoyed the story (which was actually more of a prequel) and it was nicely done with sets, costumes, lighting, special effects, etc. I think it wasn't made quite as clear as it should have that most of the movie was a flashback, I got the impression that the flashback parts were just a parallel story line until near the end when it became obvious what the backstory was, although I won't go into more detail on that because it would be a spoiler. My main issue with this movie was that the music just didn't get to me. The first movie had some really catchy tunes ("Grief", "Beautiful Stranger", "Grace for Sale", etc.), as did Repo! by the same creators, but the songs in this one felt a little too... Staggered, for a lack of better words. They just didn't stand out. The only one that really appealed to me was "Hoof and Lap". Aside from that, this was interesting and I do hope they make a third one, because this really leaves you wanting more!
