      Mark B Our aspirations often get sidetracked despite the most genuine of intentions. How do we respond to difficulties? Can we overcome adversity? Can we bounce back from disappointment? This film explores these questions in an entertaining and "deeper than it seems" way. I spent my teen years following many of the bands mentioned in this movie. Thank you, Chris, for making Electric Jesus! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/04/23 Full Review Audience Member 80's rock? I'm in! Loved it. Chris White, please continue to bring us more movies! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Took me on a journey reliving bits of my childhood where youth group and church was where my friendships were born. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member From art house to Marvel super hero movies, one genera that has consistently been lacking quality is faith based films. They're either too heavy handed or they lack a Jesus follower perspective; such as, Noah or God's Not Dead. Electric Jesus is a movie that challenges the way faith based films tell a story, and should be welcomed with open arms. Immediately, the story launches the viewer into the perfect storm with the struggle of faith and then transitions the audience into a culture most Christians know all too well. This indie comedy is absolutely worth watching and it will entertain as well as share an honest coming of age story that reflects a faith based world view; with an 80's hair metal flair. "Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition!" Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member A very moving and relatable coming of age film set in the 80s Christian Rock culture. Great story , brought back lots of memories.. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Killer music. Great story. Pretty damn good effort at nailing the period especially considering it's an indie Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Brian Costello Common Sense Media Secular audiences can often feel left out and bored when viewing faith-based movies, but Electric Jesus strikes a fine balance between humor that doesn't interfere or mock any positive messages faith-based characters have to impart.
