The Scariest Horror Movie You Will Ever See

Posted by : Rev. Ouabache | Thursday, January 20, 2011 | Published in

Jesus Camp is a 2006 American documentary film directed by Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing about a charismatic summer camp, where children spend their summers learning and practicing their "prophetic gifts" and being taught that they can "take back America for Christ." According to the distributor, it "doesn't come with any prepackaged point of view" and tries to be "an honest and impartial depiction of one faction of the evangelical Christian community".

The scary part is that every single thing in this movie is 100% true. As far as I know nothing was scripted. This is not a work of satire and there is not a hint of irony involved. The camp in this movie no longer exists but there are tens of thousands of people scattered throughout America that look, think, and act like this. I know, because I've met them before. This is what fundamentalist Christians actually believe. Hopefully you'll still be able to sleep at night after this.

Also: LOL, Ted Haggard!

    Recently watched this with my wife and 13-year old stepson. He spent a LOT of time saying "What? What the hell!?"

    Which made me very happy. He's developing an excellent bullshit detector early in life, may it serve him well.

    What makes this such a great documentary is that the people they show do not object to how they were portrayed. Those far-out pentacostals don't think this was a hit job, they think they got a fair depiction. Isn't that the creepiest thing of all?
