Two Indie gems from Indican Pictures

In the mood for a bawdy, surreal art-musical... with zombies?

Well, who isn´t?

Indican Pictures is putting out this hilarious gem called Gory Gory Hallelujah, that tells the tale of four actors competing for the role of Jesus - a black revolutionary (Jeff Gilbert), a bisexual hippie (Tim Gouran), a Jew (Todd Licea), and a woman (Angie Louise).

When all four are rejected, they hit the road on bad-ass motorcycles, bound for glory in New York City. But when a run-in with a gang of Elvises ends in murder, they find themselves stranded in a little town called Jackville - where folk don't take kindly to blasphemers.

Taken prisoner, the Jesuses fall prey to an evil conspiracy that can only lead to the Apocalypse.

As the oppressed turn against each other and the undead rise, who will emerge as the true Jesus? Can zombies bring redemption, or just eat flesh?

Check it out at their Official Website!

On a more serious note (well...) we have Ari Kirschenbaum's Fabled, about a guy named Joseph Fable who just broke up with his girlfriend and is not taking it very well. He thinks she is plotting against him with their mutual psychiatrist.

But things only gets worse.

His dog is missing and he suspects that the people at work might be behind it. And there´s also the unshakable guilt over his past...

Through an allegorical "fable" that is told in parallel with Joseph's struggle, we are left to decide for ourselves who is the crow and who is the wolf. Was someone out to get Joseph, was it a stroke of bad luck, or was it all in his head?

Find out at Fabled's website.
