god awful movie - Friday 4/19 9:00 pm

What hath God wrought? Some pretty cringe-worthy religious movies, you would know if you regularly listen to the podcast God Awful Movies.

From the AACon2019 mainstage, the hosts of the show will not only electrify us, they’ll prove, once and for all, that if god provided divine inspiration, his movies would be a hell of a lot better.

And if a higher power really existed, its PR team couldn’t possibly be this bad!

Come see the irreverent humor of God Awful Movies in person, as Eli Bosnick, Heath Enwright, and Noah Lugeons unveil and shred a truly terrible religious movie with low production values, terrible writing, and third rate acting.

More than being uproariously funny, God Awful Movies digs into the truly nefarious messages spread by movies like Passion of the Christ, All the King's Horses, The Accidental Activist, Miracles from Heaven, and the entire catalog of Ray Comfort's "films."

Sure, the movies are poorly made, and it would be charitable to describe the cast members as "actors," but more than that, these movies need taking down because of the harmful, even deadly messages they send.

These are movies that tell women that if they pray harder their husbands won’t hit them, that foment anti-LGBT hatred, and that promote prayer instead of medicine. Some even tell those suffering from depression that prayer will prevent suicide.

For AACon2019, Noah, Heath, and Eli have promised us an absurd movie of ungodly proportions that only they could dig up.
