GORY GORY HALLELUJAH (2003)
Cult Comedy/Horror. Directed by Sue Corcoran. Screenplay by Angie Louise. Songs by Angie Louise, arranged by Bruce Monroe.
Four actors audition for the role of Jesus: a black revolutionary (Jeff Gilbert), a bisexual stoner (Tim Gouran), a Jew (Todd Licea) and a woman (Angie Louise). When all four are rejected, they hit the road for New York City, but a run-in with a gang of Elvises ends in murder and strands the foursome in the redneck town of Jackville, where folks don't take kindly to blasphemers. This can only lead to the apocalypse, seasoned with the rising of the dead and an MGM musical ending.
