I'm really not sure how to describe this movie. It was really funny. The basic premise is that in Ottawa, vampires are hunting lesbians for a nefarious scheme. The Church doesn't know what to do, so they go to Jesus, who has been living in seclusion, saving souls and baptizing people. With his trusty cohorts Mary Magnum and the retired Mexican Wrestling Federation champion El Santos, Jesus does battle with the forces of darkness.
The movie is not meant to be taken too seriously. It attempts to be a camp classic, and I must admit, it succeeds beautifully. My friends and I kept laughing throughout the movie. It was so much more fun that any of us expected. The acting was campy, the "special effects" budget was a ... bottle of glitter, and the fight scenes were, well, really, really horrible.
However, throughout all of this, the movie still remained very positive. The ending scene with the "Sermon on the Mount" ("Sermon from the Gazebo"?) had some very good points. The music was also pretty good.
If your religious sensibilities are easily offended, you will probably not like this movie. If you have a sense of humor, you will. While the movie pushed some boundaries, I didn't see anything offensive about it.
Right from the start I loved this film. Why? Because the opening credits and music were the best I've seen in a long time. Imagine seeing headshots of all the characters done up in a style reminiscent of early 1980s video game graphics with a robotic voice (vox?) reading off their names. Trust me, it's far cooler than I'm making it sound. I replayed the credits at least three times before I even started watching the film! As for the picture itself, I think describing it as a horror/comedy/action/musical covers all the bases.Read more ›
A strange plague has overridden the city of Ottawa. Daylight-walking vampires have invaded the city, slaying many and causing a shortage of lesbians (don't ask...). Two priests then call to the chosen one, Jesus H himself, to restore order to the once peaceful Canadian capital. Jesus, using his magic powers of Kung-Fu, does the best he can but soon finds himself way outnumbered against the hordes of the undead. Down in the dumps, Jesus calls Mexican wrestler El Santos to the rescue. Together, Jesus Christ and El Santos form a Tag Team to rid the city of the undead.
The first thing one notices right away is how much fun everyone seems to be having making this movie. The film is filled with awkward acting and dialogue but the exuberance and joy of the people involved more than make up for that. It really looks like a film made by a bunch of friends with too much time on their hands. Most of the actors in this are either punk rockers (the people on Jesus' side) or Goths (the vampires). One of the priests who calls for Jesus' help has a red-couloured Mohawk and a leather jacket filled with spikes just to give you an idea. This film is somewhat of a musical but not the whole way through; it switches styles every 20 minutes or so.Read more ›
Also make sure to watch this movie with a group of people. As with any bad movie it's always more fun to watch it with a group of friends. Heckling and even laughing is always better with others. This movie never takes itself seriously so, don't take it seriously. Laugh at the bad acting, laugh at the errors and laugh at the bad fight scenes. Just laugh, you'll enjoy it. Don't pick it apart, unless you intend to well... hmm... what was it? Oh yeah, laugh about it. If there's one thing that'll stay in your head it's the song "Everbody gets laid tonight". God, that song is catchy. Pun intended.

Uh, wow, that's all I can say, wow. Had to watch this a couple times to get everything in. It's the best thing to come out of Canada since Zap Rowsdower! Read morePublished 11 months ago by Dave Lamphier
This is hands down one of the most awesomely ridiculous low-budget movies of all time. My first copy was stolen, and I had no qualms about spending money to replace it. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Ashley
When a group of nasty, voracious vampires goes on a rampage, only Jesus can take them on. From their initial Kung Fu confrontation, it's obvious that he's our only hope. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Bindy Sue Frønkünschtein
