About 'Fist of Jesus'

“Fist of Jesus” is a 2012 Spanish short film known as a par­odic mix of horror, comedy and splatter film. Written and dir­ected by David Muñoz and Adrián Car­dona, the film tells the story of Jesus and his faithful com­panion Judas, who encounter a series of absurdly violent adven­tures.

The plot of the film revolves around Jesus healing people and per­forming mir­acles, but his mira­cu­lous power is unwit­tingly used by his fol­lowers to raise Laz­arus from the dead. But unfor­tu­nately some­thing goes wrong and Laz­arus turns into a flesh-eating zombie. Jesus and Judas sud­denly find them­selves in the middle of a zombie apo­ca­lypse and have to fight an army of undead.

“Fist of Jesus” stands out for its com­pletely absurd and exag­ger­ated ideas. One of the most iconic scenes in the film is when Jesus tries to fight the zombie infest­a­tion with fish by throwing them at the undead and turning them into fried chicken. How­ever, this act of trans­form­a­tion leads to fur­ther dis­aster when the sur­rounding people eat the zombie chicken meat and turn into zom­bies them­selves.

Another striking scene is the show­down between Jesus and a horde of zom­bies, where he preaches a sermon to his fol­lowers while at the same time fighting with weapons such as a whip and a cross. This com­bin­a­tion of reli­gious sym­bols and brutal scenes of viol­ence gives the film a strange and dis­turbing atmo­sphere.

“Fist of Jesus” is cer­tainly not a film for all tastes, but it will be appre­ci­ated by fans of B‑movie horror and absurd humour. The film is an ironic and often taste­less homage to the genre of the zombie film and offers an abund­ance of bloody splatter effects and black-humoured moments. Although pro­voc­ative in its plot and present­a­tion, the film can also be seen as a satir­ical exam­in­a­tion of reli­gion and the way reli­gious stories are told.
