A young woman accepts a babysitting offer from a couple she doesn’t know. Puzzled by the children’s odd behavior, she invites some friends to keep her company. Little do they know that it will be the worst night of their lives…
The Director's Note:
BABY-SITTING stems from my strong desire to shoot a short lm fully dedicated to the horror genre. Indeed, the making of a horror movie raises a full range of technical and artistic challenges – exactly the type of issues that a young, dynamic team of lmmakers would like to tackle.
Jesus is always willing to lend a hand to those in need, but there are others ... that will taste his fist.
A biblical assault on the senses!
The shining star of the film is its practical effects, and the excess in which they’re shown. This is not a film for the squeamish, but for those who appreciate the hard work that goes into supplying films that rely on wanton gore with all the blood and entrails that they could possibly need. With its lengthy battle scenes, Fist of Jesus is a love letter to so many different interests in the horror genre as a whole—zombies, gore for gore’s sake, and generous absurdities. The special effects makeup on the many zombies is colorful and detailed despite the film’s low budget; even though the tongue-in-cheek nature of the entire production is impossible to ignore, Fist of Jesus shows intense care and attention to its humor and characters. It forces its audience to give up their preconceived notions about the characters and separate them from their original contexts; Judas, the betrayer, is perhaps the most relatable and sympathetic character of the entire film. He grimaces and apologizes in the face of all the violence, while Jesus seems to go mad with bloodlust. This departure from what is normally understood and expected of these characters is what makes Fist of Jesus so hilarious and so clever.
