The VelociPastor, adapted from a 2011 viral short of the same name, the film is a feature-length horror comedy and ode to bad-b movies of the 70s, featuring appearances from goth music icon Aurelio Voltaire and world-renowned contemporary artist Jiechang Yang. Because why not. It has a silly dinosaur costume in it, everything’s on the table.
The film is about a priest (Gregory James Cohan) who travels to China and is scratched by an ancient artifact, which allows him to turn into a dinosaur. After initially being reticent to use his power, he’s convinced by his hooker friend (Alyssa Kempinski) to use this power for good, and fight the ninja menace that’s begun plaguing the city.
Writer and director Brendan Steere reassembled the team that brought success to his 2014 film Animosity, including cinematographer Jesse Gouldsbury and producer Brandon Taylor. Animosity was produced by Roy Frumkes and screened at festivals as prestigious as Fantasia in Montreal and Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival in New York state. It is available for viewing on Amazon Prime.
