And did we mention that it's a musical? This sure ain't Sunday school.

However, if you can appreciate a film with a budget that's likely smaller than the loan you paid off for your SUV, then this film is a must.
Jesus Christ returns to civilization, and with the help of legendary luchador El Santo, he will attempt to vanquish the vampire infestation that's overtaken the city.
I will say no more.
This is beyond "don't bother'. This is deep in the realm of, not only what the 'F' but WHY the 'F'.
I Like Horror Movies
He teams up with Mary Magnum and, later, the Mexican wrestler El Santos (who I initially thought was the Holy Ghost--hey, it could have been--God was in a bowl of cherries, after all), gets a new look, and kicks butt.
The whole movie looks like a student project--very low budget, very amateurish on pretty much every angle you can think of: the acting, the stunts, the sets, the sound quality, you name it. But I love that sort of thing. For example, I prefer amateur theater. But this is more than that. This is like the small circuses with maybe a dozen people total doing everything from setting up to selling tickets to 3 or 4 different acts each. I love those. That's what Jesus Christ, Vampire Hunter was like. It was to a Hollywood movie what the small traveling circus is to Ringling Brothers/Barnum & Bailey.
Granted, I'm pretty much a-religious (even anti-Religious, if it's with a capital "R"), but I have a really thorough fundamentalist Christian background, and other than the audacity of portraying Jesus in a modern setting and a story that's not overtly Religious, it's not sacrilegious at all. That is, the Jesus in the movie sticks pretty close to the one in the bible. He may kick the vampires around, but he ends up healing them, too.
And then there's the musical/dance number. The entire movie is worth watching just for that alone.
