Nashville, TN (November 3, 2021)
From 1091 Pictures, Electric Jesus, is available now through all major digital streaming platforms. Electric Jesus is a coming-of-age rock-and-roll comedy, following the ill-fated exploits of a fictional religious hair metal band during the summer of 1986.
The film stars The Office’s Brian Baumgartner as the band’s woebegone road manager, 80’s teen icon Judd Nelson as a firebrand preacher, and newcomers Andrew Eakle, Shannon Hutchinson, and Wyatt Lenhart as devout teens determined to “make Jesus famous.” The project was written and directed by Chris White (Unbecoming, Get Better).

Editor’s Note: Be warned that this movie does have a couple of swear words. This movie is more of a satirical look at the state of the Christian music industry in the 80s…a la the movies Spinal Tap or Best In Show, etc.
