It’s a wrap on Kung Fu Ghost! The indie martial arts comedy has finished shooting and now its existence is inevitable. You can thank Jennifer N. Linch, who made the film her personal pet project.

The film is in the process of being brought into existence through the sheer will of Jennifer N. Linch. She’s directing it. She stars in it, and she’s the founder and CEO of the company making it, Nameless Studio.

The VelociPastor is a film that’s cinematic DNA seems to have been excavated from an archaeological triple feature of Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park, William Friedkin’s The Exorcist and Bruce Lee’s Enter The Dragon. Actually, scrap that. More likely it was films like Roger Corman’s Carnosaur, Leslie Nielsen’s Repossessed and the A Fistful of Yen sequence from Kentucky Fried Movie that inspired this film’s zaniness. The VelociPastor is the hardest I’ve laughed at a film in the last year, proving that you don’t need a Hollywood budget or marquee names to bring the funny.
