Jesus, Elvis impersonators, and the living dead all stumble their way through this campy and over-the-top independent comedy. Four bohemian actors from Seattle meet when they arrive at a theater only to find they haven't made the cut for a play for which they auditioned. On a whim, the foursome -- black nationalist Rahim (Jeff Gilbert), bisexual free-love advocate Sky (Tim Gouran), embittered feminist Jessie (Angie Louise), and geeky tumbling expert Joshua (Todd Licea) -- hop on motorcycles and set out for New York City, where they all hope to land the leading role in a production of Jesus Christ Superstar; however, en route they pass through Jackville, a small town that has little use for free-spirited types. When the would-be Jesuses learn that Mo Jack (Joseph Franklin), a elderly local, is being run off his land so a housing development can be built, the actors leap to his defense -- which lands them all in jail in short order, and a lynching looks to be in the cards until a platoon of zombies attack Jackville. Gory Gory Hallelujah was directed by Sue Corcoran and Angie Louise, who also bill themselves as the Von Piglet Sisters.
