Description:
Vampires are hunting lesbians in Ottawa and converting them - not into heterosexuals, but into vampires. Unsure of what to do, the church enlists the help of Jesus, who has been living in seclusion. Being the man of love and compassion Jesus agrees to kick ass to save the lesbians from lesbian vampires.

Qvamp says:

The title of the film should give you a hint for what you are in for. And if it doesn't, keep in mind that their big star is Santos, the masked Mexican wrestler.

The plot is decidedly pro-gay overall, but portrays this in an off-beat manner. Fairly early in the film, Jesus gets beaten up by vampires (using very cheesy b-movie martial arts). He pleads for help from those that pass by. First is a priest, who ignores him. Next, a cop, who also ignores him. Finally a drag queen heeds his plea and helps him out. Later, a plaster Mary talks to Jesus and states '
I'm trying to help some lesbians. God love them, they get so much done in a day, don't they?'

In the end, Jesus (and Santos) agrees that there is nothing deviant about love, and that lesbians are as worthy as anyone else.

In spite of its pro-gay leanings, this is a very, very decidedly B-movie. If you like bad acting, plot holes and cheesy action, then by all means go for this. I admit that I enjoyed it, but would be unlikely to watch it a second time.
