What is Kicking Zombie Ass for Jesus (KZAFJ)?
Kicking Zombie Ass For Jesus is a full-length feature about a zombie apocalypse where the only survivors are gay people and church people. They find themselves barricaded in the same building and must decide to either continue fighting against each other or work together to strengthen their chance for survival; not to mention lots of action, zombies and gore!
Why This Movie Needs To
This film was inspired by the
flood of anti-gay, despicable, hate speech from churches, organizations and
politicians. This bullying needs to stop! As filmmakers, we have a voice to fight back
by creating a movie that faces these issues head on.
A miracle pill intended to save
the world causes unforeseen side-effects forcing the surviving gays and bible
thumpers in a small Texas town to join forces or fall prey to the flesh craving
The new horror comedy Kicking
Zombie Ass for Jesus, written and directed by controversial filmmaker Israel
Luna (Ticked-Off Trannies With Knives), begins one momentous night as the world
gathers to take a miracle pill scientists say prevents all viral diseases.
Hours later after the synchronized celebration ends there’s a sudden and
unsettling quiet that blankets the globe. Then, everything turns dire as it
becomes all too clear that everyone who took the pill suffers from horrific
side-effects. As a few, defiant, non pill-popping survivors emerge in the small
Texas town of Eliasville, they find themselves seeking refuge in an abandoned
building near the town’s center. Soon after Beth Anne, a transgender woman, and
Phil, a tough-as-nails lesbian, have finished barricading themselves safely
inside they quickly realize that they are not the sole survivors after
encountering Samuel, pastor of the local “Gay is not Ok” Pentecostal church,
along with his wife, Janice, and closeted son, Ethan. While butting their
proverbial heads at every turn things get even crazier upon discovering a
madcap group of vigilante survivors all of whom are challenged to band together
in hopes of surviving the zombie apocalypse that surrounds them.
This film is the second
installment of the Grindhouse-styled trilogy from La Luna Entertainment and
serves as a companion piece to Ticked-Off Trannies With Knives, aka TOTWK.
After the unexpected controversy and praise writer/director Israel Luna
garnered with TOTWK many movie critics have posed the question, “What will he
do next?” With “Zombie” Luna promises not to disappoint with yet another
sure-to-be cult classic that offers up relevant issues of justice and equality
set within a mainstream genre that’s laden with elements of old-school horror.
We're excited about so many
things happening with this project. We'll be posting more videos throughout the
campaign including information about the director and producer and their past
projects, info on where your money goes when you donate, special messages from
cast members and any updates as the buzz gets out! We have a crazy-packed
schedule of videos for you during our campaign so please keep checking back!
Why are you launching a campaign on Kickstarter?
Independent movies starring LGBT
characters are still under-represented in movies. Gay filmmakers are in the minority and
the studios ignore these types of projects. But thanks to
all of you, we know that there is an audience for LGBT characters and filmmakers
and with your donations we will make this happen together!!
Besides donations, how else can we help?
There are so many ways that you
can help the project. Please like our
video and then tweet, post on Facebook or send out a personal message to anyone
you feel should be aware of our project.
When will the film be released?

What is your Kickstarter goal and how will you use the money?
Our goal is to raise $175,000 which will cover
the costs of our shooting production in Texas and our post production in San
Can you exceed the goal?
Yes, yes, yes! Our goal is the minimum we require to make
the film and we are scrimping and saving any way possible to make that
happen. If we exceed the goal then that
gives us ways to make the film even better –which means more blood, more gore and bigger and better visual FX!
Can donors increase pledges once they
have been made?
Yes! If you have already donated, and are signed in to
your account, then instead of a green “Back This Project” button on our page,
there should be a blue “Manage Your Donation” button. Click that, and you can
enter a new amount or choose a new incentive!

the donation tiers and some of our favorites are the character trading cards,

information for the person you wish to gift.
