"Barabbas" is a miniseries airing on Reelz and based on the book by Par Lagerkvist. In turn, said novel is based on the Biblical character whose life was spared when Jesus was crucified in his place. Of course, this isn't the first time that Billy Zane has started in a film/miniseries that is an outgrowth of the tale of Jesus' crucifixion. In fact, one of our all time favorite films is just that. Can you guess what it is? Really? Okay, we'll tell you -- "Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight." Great movie. We assume this is vaguely different (though that won't make it bad).
