Brief synopsis

“He who controls Michael Jackson controls the masses!”
- Count Cagliostro

NEWS FLASH: Michael Jackson’s hand has been stolen from his crypt in LA!!

The culprits: two love-struck leather dwarves, acting on the orders of Dr. Cagliostro, a time-traveling sorcerer posing as the manager of a “punk circus” in Berlin. The mysterious mystic’s mad plan: use the risen Michael to rouse the masses and ignite a global revolution!

Realizing something strange is afoot, two lesbian ghost hunter girls and three horny college dudes team up to infiltrate Cagliostro’s circus. Things come to a head when the rapidly decaying Jacko-Zombie Messiah takes over the circus and starts his own “Rainbow Revolution” one that quickly descends into chaos.

Can the kids stop Doomsday before it’s too late?

“Probably one of the strangest movies ever made”
--- Jack Lechner, Exec. Producer, “Blue Valentine”

“Do you ever have that recurring nightmare where midgets and German circus folks take commands from talking toilets and wear Hitler masks and cast spells to bring Michael Jackson back from the dead in zombie form? If you didn’t before, you will now after watching this. A cult film in the making.”
--- Jen Yamato, Movieline
