'Is fear part of salvation? Absolutely. Fear of going to Hell.' That's the theory at Trinity Church, Texas, where every year they put on a Halloween show depicting sinners going about their business - attending raves, being gay, having abortions, committing suicide - and reaping the whirlwind. In 2001 they added a Columbine shooting to the mix. This well-made documentary follows this bizarre throwback to the Mystery Plays from auditions (acting qualities balanced with spiritual ones), through rehearsals to first night. It's strikingly non-judgmental. Know your enemy, I guess.
