Peter Janes wrote in to point out that if I’d bothered to follow the “Official site” link on IMDB.com, I would have found the Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter Web page (part of the Odessa Filmworks site) and from there found out that the Special Edition DVD streets in the United States in eight days. For $19.95. With 30 minutes of outtakes and deleted scenes. I think I need to lie down for a minute.
Shoot, having a copy of the “Star Wars Scat” sung near the end of the film is reason enough to buy the thing. Thanks to Eclectic DVD, I can.
Oh, and don’t forget the free JCVH desktops!
Lest you think I’m a rabid fanboi here, bear in mind that I was chuckling as I typed out all this stuff. This film is goofy. It’s obviously a labor of love, and shows many a spark of talent. The musical number was fall-down funny (in more ways than one, the end-credit outtakes reveal) and the ranting prophet in the bushes was genuinely odd. If you’re uptight, this movie almost certainly will offend you, but of course that’s one of the things I liked about it.
Good thing the Bible is in the public domain, though.
