Summary:
"In this nightmare classic by Edmund Elias Merhige, a godlike thing dies giving birth to a quivering messiah thing; then the local villager things ravage and bury them, and the earth renews itself on their corpses. It is as if a druidical cult had re-enacted, for real, three Bible stories- creation, the Nativity and Jesus' torture and death on Golgotha- and some demented genius were there to film it."--Container.
