The Catechism Cataclysm

Oh, Lord, this film is as funny as it is strange. And ‘strange’ is an understatement.


Comedy

Rod Lott
As "The Catechism Cataclysm" begins, the audience first hears that this is "110 percent a real story." Although it's said by a priest, take it with a sack of salt — not just because he's not speaking to us, but because writer/director Todd Rohal's unconventional (to say the least) comedy is all about effing with viewers.
