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?

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 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.
