We’ve heard the backlash and support for the film Django Unchained by Quentin Tarantino but now a spoof based on a few of his most recent films seems to have created a new stir. Saturday Night Live [SNL] did a spoof of the Django movie using Jesus Christ as the hero of a revenge movie. The plot: Jesus rises from the dead to seek revenge on the Romans. Using elements of Kill Bill, Inglorious Basterds and Django Unchained the spoof pokes some fun at Tarantino’s filmmaking style, media backlash and to an extent, some groups’ beliefs in Jesus Christ. Hit the jump to watch and let us know your thoughts.
Bonus: Backlash for SNL’s “DJesus Uncrossed”
