Headbands trump Micky Mouse shirts every time...well, at least when God-puppets are on your side.

So... Jesus drives Supervan and forces White trash to accept him into their lives?

Far and away, THE BEST video I have ever seen on EIT. *applause*

Those kids got off easy. The week before, a group of unrepentant jay-walkers got sentenced to 90 days of pantomime.

I'm sorry David, you've been diagnosed with an acute Jesus in your heart. I'd estimate you only have a week or two at most until Judgment Day.

Anybody catch the Deltron 3030 "Memory Loss" sample in there? Big library tune!

Whoa, Larry Bird was a dick as a kid.

I imagine that this movie is almost as fucked up without the awesome edits. Not at all what I expected, holy shit.

So this is what goes on behind the scenes of Christian puppetry. Amazing.

None of those child beatings or broken families would have happened if he just LET THEM PRACTICE BASKETBALL!

"I hereby sentence you to being brainwashed into zombie-sheep just like the guy you vandalized."

The frosting on the cake is the whole "THE WORLD WILL HATE YOU ONCE YOU BECOME A CHRISTIAN" propaganda message. The people who started the myth must've been the funeral-protesting types to begin with - the "hatred" for the "let's push civil rights back to the 50's" folk is more hatred for the mindset and propaganda than anything.

@Anonymous The name of this movie is "Brother Enemy." As far as I can tell the title has nothing to do with the movie.

And on the seventh day, Jesus put on a lame puppet show with a bunch of juvenile delinquents.

Anonymous: If you're willing to invest $40 and get saddled with some other films (and if you still own a VCR), you can buy the movie on ebay--

i was listening to the audio while playing minecraft, and i'd bet money that dan the automator sampled this movie for "handsome boy modeling school, so... hows your girl" i clearly recognize someones voice from a sample on the album and the piano roll after the fight scene(2:35)is from magnetizing.
heres the song the piano is from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYaqZ9r3K14
could be coincidence, but im pretty sure im right

Dante Fontana said...

@Anonymous I don't think Dan the Automator sampled from this movie, the piano roll you're talking about is "Tense Preparation" by Nick Ingman, 1977. It's possible the Christian movie found that track in some library collection and used it because it does sound the same.

I totally thought the judge looked like Michael Landon!

Also, it's kinda creepy him coming out of the bushes, in front of that young girl's house. Like seriously, are her parents not worried?

Triston Ordway said...

OMG SIFL @ 1:33?!

@Dante Fontana

Looks like it can be purchased for $15 on DVD... sorta tempting just to see it lol

Jeffro said...

THIS IS EXCEPTIONAL. I would stand and applaud, but I'm kneeling behind a puppet stage.

I was heavily involved in Christian puppetry as a young'un.

NONE OF YOU WOULD HAVE LASTED FIVE MINUTES IN MY WORLD
