Product Description

Four actors compete for the role of Jesus- a black revolutionary, a bisexual hippie, a Jew, and a woman. When all four are rejected, they hit the road on bad-ass motorcycles, bound for glory in New York City. But when a run-in with a gang of Elvises ends in murder, they find themselves stranded in a little town called Jackville - where folk don't take kindly to blasphemers. Taken prisoner, the Jesuses fall prey to an evil conspiracy that can only lead to the Apocalypse. As the oppressed turn against each other and the undead rise, who will emerge as the true Jesus? Can zombies bring redemption, or just eat flesh?

By Tommy Dooley TOP 50 REVIEWER on March 8 2012
Format: DVD
This is billed as `A bawdy & Surreal Art Musical. With Zombies'. And yes it sort of is and it is actually a lot more. It kicks off with four very different actors auditioning for `The Greatest Play Ever Written!' They are all up for the part of Jesus. One is a black power, revolutionary, one a spirited Jew, a bi-sexual hippy and a red head femme fatal (and I do mean fatal). They all get blown off for the gig by the brilliantly over the top director.

So in the spirit of Thespian camaraderie they decide to all bond by taking a road trip to New York to audition for the revival of `Jesus Christ -Superstar'. So on static motor bikes with a rolling canvas backdrop they wend their merry way. Whilst taking a breather for free love and beer they encounter a band of evil Elvis impersonators (including one who is a dwarf - uh huh). Things go bad and the foursome do a runner and find themselves in the arse end of beyond, the Evangelical town of Jackville.

There they get arrested for being gay and such stuff but are released on bail into the hands of the community (prison would have been better). Thus the true spirit of this corrupt band of Bible bashers is revealed. Then the undead and the local brothel come into the fray.

This is a comedy that is camper than a drag queen pantomime - in a sequined tent. It is a bit bawdy, it is all done on a shoestring budget, the make up is particularly laughable and the casting director deserves a medal for finding and creating such a grotesquery of characters. The songs are one dimensionally bad in that they are good and the action is more or less non stop.

Angie Louise who wrote the screen play also, acts as Jessie and Sue Corcoran (director and plays Prudence) have made a cult classic.

this wild movie settles down; perhaps a little too much June 1 2006
By Michael L. White - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Another entry in the long tradition of Jesus Motorcycle Gang movies, Sue Corcoran's GORY GORY HALLELUJAH is the groovy tale of four actors who try out for the role of Jesus in "The Greatest Play Ever Written." The quartet approaches their roles from different perspectives. There's Rahim the black revolutionary (Jeff Gilbert), Sky the bi hippie (Tim Gouran), Joshua the mensch (Todd Licea), and Jessie the feminist (Angie Louise). When the four Jesuses run into a pack wild Elvis impersonators things get all shook up. On the run from the law after one of the King of Kings lays low one of the Kings of Rock `n' Roll, the group happens upon the wrong backwater Podunk town.

It's about here where this wild movie settles down; perhaps a little too much. Our four Jesuses become prisoners in Jacksville and are placed with various pillars of the community, only to find that they're not everything they pretend to be. Unfortunately, this was about the time that I lost interest in the movie. I could have done for more hysteria and less histrionics. It's a shame that this flick didn't live up to its potential. Even the zombie-filled finale can't save the tepid second act.

This is one that put a smile on my face from the start and it stayed there. This is not high cinema or a horror, it is a comedy of characters that have spent too much time in wardrobe and make up and cant deliver a single line straight. I ruddy well loved it. If a `zom com' is your thing then also check out `Dead Heads'. This though is pure fun, an ideal companion to a night in with your mates and quite a bit of booze - this is Troma for the 21st Century.

A Gas Jan. 11 2006
By Jarvis Walstreet - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This film is a hell of a lot of fun. I picked it up at Best Buy and love it! Great, great fun. It's a mix of Zombies, musicals and Evil Dead. Any Sam Raimi fans out there will find this fun! Plus it has some coked out Elvis's that you've got to see. Very clever and I highly recommend.
A strange indie horror musical Nov. 16 2013

A strange indie horror musical. Very different and weird. Wish it was more violent! If it was I could see it becoming a cult film.
Fun Camp! June 15 2012
By Lady Ren - Published on Amazon.com

This movie is a fun, campy film about some misfits who go on an adventure. After being denied for the role of Jesus in a community theater production, four colorful actors decide to travel cross country to audition for Jesus Christ Superstar. After stopping in a small, Christian town, the four are arrested for sins against God.

If you like The Comebacks, this is a movie of the same ilk!
