80s hair metal is a genre into itself. Toss in the hilarious Brian Baumgartner, some uber Christian lyrics, and you’ve got “Electric Jesus.”
“When a flashy promoter (played by Brian Baumgartner, The Office) sells sound man Erik (Andrew Eakle) and his favorite local Christian hair metal band, 316, on the promise of a bus tour in the summer of 1986, their desire to “make Jesus famous” meets the complexities and confusion of personal ambition, religious conviction, youthful zeal, lifelong friendships, and first love.”
You can even check out some of 316’s songs!
Chris White writes and directs “Electric Jesus,” which is available to stream now. Check out the trailer below:
