What's not to love when a movie has comedy and some cheap thrilled, guilt-free drama? VoD presents 'Electric Jesus' in time to rock and roll with you, this season, for the diehard music lover and metalhead fan in you!

A promoter (played by Brian Baumgartner) sells sound man Erik (Andrew Eakle) and his favorite Christian metal band, called 316, with the promise of a bus tour in the summer of 1986. Their so-called idea of making Jesus famous meets the confusion of personal ethics among many, religious introspection, lifelong friendships, and first loves.
