Holy, a mild-mannered priest in a small town, runs into a demon after church one day. The demon, Vile Lynn, possesses Holy and forces him to kill. But Holy cannot deal with the guilt, and must confront the demon to stop the killing.
The movie features finger shearing, spine ripping, blood spraying, puke, demons, dismemberment, the living dead, nightmare creatures, the best drunken speech ever shot, numerous strange dental appliances, goofy dialogue, weird lighting, and more!
Holy Moly was directed by Lance Ozanix, the lead singer for thrash metal band Skitzo, known for his ability to vomit on command. The movie was originally distributed on VHS by Lance himself, eventually picking up some distribution from Blackest Heart Media. The VHS is long out of print, and the this is the first time the original cut, or any of the extras, has been released on DVD.
