Taste the “Fist of Jesus”!!

Directed:  Adrián Cardona, David Muñoz

Starring:  Marc Velasco, Noé Blancafort

Yeah…I’m definitely going to Hell for having the brilliant idea of posting this on Good Friday.

So here’s a lovely short called “Fist of Jesus” where we witness the famous scene where Jesus resurrects Lazarus. Sadly things don’t go as planned when Lazarus comes back as a zombie and devours his loved ones. That creates more zombies and now we’re faced with a small zombie army! So it’s up to Jesus and his trusty sidekick Judas Iscariot to clean up the mess and battle an army of zombies.

This was a glorious piece of hilarity. This whole thing was filmed in 2012 and in Spanish(don’t worry there are subtitles) which I think added to the comedy of the short film. It started out as this super serious/spiritual movie that we’ve seen a million times and then in a split second it changed into the gory goodness of a zombie movie which we’ve also seen a million times. If “Shaun of the Dead” and the Bible had a baby it would be “Fist of Jesus”. It has won it’s fair share of awards.

Those include :

10/11/13“Best Short Film” 8th Abertoir Horror Film Festival of Wales

08/11/13“Audience Award to the Best Action Shortfilm” Germany After Dark 2013

30/10/13“Best International Film” Heavy Hitting HorrorFest (Whistler, Canada)

20/10/13“Best Short Film” Fear Fete Horror Film Festival (Louisiana, USA)

This short film has been such a funtastic thing to behold that they are trying to get the funds to turn it into a feature film titled “Once Upon a Time in Jerusalem”. Honestly, I would love to see this film so I’m going to put the links below so you can see for yourself. Please donate, buy “Fist of Jesus” merchandise, and give your support to make “Once Upon a Time in Jerusalem” a reality. I also have the short film at the bottom so you can see what I mean about this zombie goodness.

Red Road returns tomorrow on Sundance!

The Red Road returns for its second season on Sundance channel Thursday, April 2nd 10/9C

This is a heart pounding, nonstop action kinda series and not just cuz Jason Momoa is in it (although that helps, too, ha, ::blush::) I didn’t know what to expect going into the first season and I’m so happy I sat down and actually watched it. Red Road combines everything I want to see more of on TV (not just Jason Momoa ::blush::) like Native American issues and more people of color with prominent roles (Hello! FINALLY!), slick, suspenseful writing, and real world characters who aren’t just canned stereotypes.

Red Road is gritty, engaging, and keeps you guessing all the way through. My only complaint is that I wish it was longer! The first season was only 6 episodes, so you guys can catch up without much difficulty before season two’s premiere.

In a nutshell, the series is about a Native American criminal and the dangerous game he plays with a white cop who covers the accident of his schizophrenic wife and the Native boy she ran over with her car. It’s a cat-and-mouse murder mystery set on an Indian reservation where the “good” cop has to outsmart the “bad” guy. However what’s good becomes bad, and what seems bad in the beginning, is slowly revealed to be good. You’ve seen it before but not like this, I promise. The predominately Native American cast is a refreshing change of pace. If you like psychological cop stories with a lot of twists and turns, then Red Road is for you.

I’ll be tuning in tomorrow to watch season 2! Will you?
