Alien Transgender Jesus


Without giving away too much of Larry Cohen's mesmerizing 'God Told Me To' (1976), here are five images of Richard Lynch playing one seriously fucked-up man/ woman/ second coming/ star child.

Filmed in New York -often without permission- Cohen's movie starts out as a tense thriller, as a wave of bizarre murders sweeps the city, each one committed by a seemingly normal member of the public who suddenly feels compelled to kill everyone around them. Their explanation afterwards? "God told me to".
The second half of the film goes really nuts, and so do all the characters.

A highly recommended oddity.
