Jesus Christ Serial Rapist- on DVD
Jesus Christ: Serial Rapist is also available in a retitled version as Into Thy Hands for the more squeamish dealers. Changing the title wrecks the one good thing about the film. The actual film and DVD menu use the Into Thy Hands title, so obviously no one wanted to press two different discs.
Bill Zebub, the man behind the Grand Grimoire of Exalted Deeds magazine, is the writer, editor, director, producer, and titular character. The movie opens with nude torture/crucifixion photos and art. As Jesus Christ: Serial Rapist starts, so does the soundtrack, comprised of black metal, death metal, and that stuff in between, which I guess would be bleath metal. Or maybe dack metal. A woman comes home to find her partner nailed to the wall. Out from under the bed leaps Bill Zebub, who strips her, despite her, oh, so very violent protests, and sets up some sacrifice. No real nudity is on display here, and not much happens despite all that stuff I just said. The bleath metal is still playing, making this whole scenario seems like a video clip. Then Zebub goes to a bar, and gets a woman off the toilet and does something similar. At least the second girl shows some skin. Okay, some of her naughty bits skin. She's also very passive during her attack…as are all the women.
Okay, so what's going on? Well, according to the sleeve, Zebub is playing a schizophrenic who thinks he's the reincarnation of Jesus. 'Jesus' is going around taking vengeance on reincarnations of those who wronged him, like Judas, but 'when the girlfriend of a victim shows up during a murder, the schizophrenic then decides that it is far more satisfying to torture, rape, and kill the women of his enemies.' It's a good thing that synopsis is on the back of the DVD sleeve, because there's NO WAY to get that from the film as there's NO DIALOUGE, just bleath metal. Bleath, bleath, bleath.
