Jesus Revolution is a box office surprise, and a different kind of Christian film: It is unabashedly evangelistic, but aims first to entertain — and one of its unlikely inspirations is the Blumhouse horror empire. “I’ve talked a lot about this with Jason Blum,” says Jon Erwin, who co-wrote and co-directed Jesus Revolution. Joshua Encinias: Jesus Revolution is different from, say, the God’s Not Dead series. One of my takeaways is that winning an argument was not what led to the Jesus Revolution.
