Box of Dread: December 2014 Unboxing + Fist of Jesus mini review

Posted on Sunday, December 28, 2014 by

This month's box was perfect. I am a big Gremlins fan and hold a sweet spot in my heart for Nightmare Before Christmas. My Gizmo koozie has already been put to good use!

The film poster is for a short film titled Fist of Jesus, created in 2012 by directors Adrian Cordona and David Munoz. It's a little tongue and cheek zombie movie centering around the story of Jesus. As an atheist who attended a Christian daycare as a child, (where I later worked as a teenager for a year, woof) I know more than I want to about general bible stories. When I saw Jesus performing the miracle of human life, I didn't expect it to be this kind of reincarnation. The gore is terrible (and great,) and I laughed SO much. This film is definitely worth 15 minutes of your time.

I originally thought Fist of Jesus was part of a compilation, but after further research have found that the filmmakers are trying to make a feature film around this story, titled Once Upon A Time in Jerusalem. Take a peek at the short film below, and visit the website at
