(OLD AMBULANCE STATION)
Godsploitation! A 90 minute compilation curated by Trash Video’s Andrew
Leavold delves into the outer fringes of Christian paranoia and
propeganda cinema. We shine the torch on Thalidomides for Jesus, Johnny
Cash on the long-haired Jesus Freak trail in Israel, the burnt Elephant
Man gospel stylings of Merrill Womach, an 80s MTV clip from scary cult
The Children Of God, the rapping pirate puppets of Captain Hook
(featuring a real-life double amputee “hooking children for Christ”),
and the most unnerving evangelists you will ever meet: a farting Robert
Tilton, petulant public access TV host and suspected kiddy-fiddler
Jonathan Bell (known affectionately as “Screaming Boy”), and former
child preacher and later LSD-addled exploitation star Marjoe Gortner who
blows the lid on the whole Baptist tent-show caper! Plus tips on
avoiding the slippery slope to Hell, and we revisit the Christian
gore-fest shock tactics of Estus W. Pirkle and the Ormond Family
Sweet dreams, sinners!

store, writer and film critic, TV presenter (Schlock Treatment every
Friday at 8.30pm on Brisbane's Channel 31), festival programmer, MC,
trivia quizmaster, agnostic evangelist, Masters student at Griffith
University, lover, fighter, former masked wrestler "El Stumpo",
obsessive archivist touring the country regularly with his compilations
of fringe cinema, and occasional guerrilla filmmaker. He recently followed up his first feature, the $700 fake 60s exploitation mini-epic Lesbo-A-Go-Go (2003), with Bluebirds Of Peace And Destruction (2006), a netherworldly reimagining of the infamous 1989 Brisbane vampire murder. Leavold's latest feature is a guerrilla documentary shot in Manila - The Search For Weng Weng
(2007) is the ultimate history of Filipino B-films, and chronicles
Leavold's obsessive quest to find the truth behind the midget James Bond
of the Philippines.
