I'm looking for what I'm only fairly confident was a TV series (not a movie). I watched this most likely in the early '90s on private free-tv outside prime time. I also remember it "being different" from the sci-fi series I knew back then, which makes me believe that it is not a U.S. production. Perhaps from Canada? ("Outer Limits" is also "different.")
I remember a male protagonist, a female companion, at least one other guy. They were being chased by some zombie-like monsters - likely aliens. They were, as far as I can remember, humanoid in shape.
The group was cornered by the monster and the protagonist started singing a choral-like song to chase them away - with at least temporary success. He explained that the monsters can be driven away by faith and that it was not important what you believed, as long as it was something that you truly believed in.
Later, I guess the group got somehow separated, that other guy was being attacked and he took a book - likely a Bible - held it defensively in front of him with both hands and started to sing, but it didn't work, because there was no faith behind it.
Since he was facing pretty certain death, he desperately tried to come up with something he truly believed in. The last thing was something like "I believe in the Good(ness)!!!" (German: "Ich glaube an das Gute!!!") which he kept repeating until he was eventually killed...
A couple more things that might be helpful: The protagonist - don't remember his name - was definitely an alien though perfectly human looking. In fact, I think, most humans weren't aware of him being an alien. I think he was the only alien of his species, though there were others around. Some classic sci-fi elements, such as space ships, space battles, laser guns and the like were missing. I think time travel may have been mentioned.
Goodness, this is becoming more interesting than I thought...
