A group of strippers looking to score big with a drug deal soon find themselves hunted by religious maniac hell-bent on purifying the Earth of its sins through murder and destruction. Armed with a carpenter’s hammer, the Cross Bearer hunts the girls in a sadistic crusade to cleanse the world.
“An apt about-face for the (slasher) genre. A showcase of gore effects reminiscent of a darker, more modern Herschell Gordon Lewis. There are no pretty bows to wrap up Cross Bearer (including its lingering and effective ending), but it’s a slasher that takes responsibility for its sins and has a hell of a time doing it.”

“Director Adam Ahlbrandt‘s dark and twisted tale left nothing to the imagination. The scenery and unnerving soundtrack gave life to some graphic bloody death scenes…this is pretty much what I look for when watching horror.”
