Quite what Beth B - known best, if at all, for her Super-8 and pop promo work - is trying to do with this uneasy blend of camp melodrama and straight satire is unclear. The film starts promisingly with barely-sane TV evangelist Reverend Randall (McHattie) ranting direct to camera about atheism in the Big Apple. But things immediately slide downward into some sort of strident 'alternative' comedy when a sacked factory worker and his sister (Mortensen and Davalos) break into Randall's Fort Knox-like mansion and hold him hostage. Heavy Metal gets an airing, there is much post-punk posturing, and the depiction of both Randall and his devotee-abductors as universally corruptible is stale and unfunny.
