    What. The. Fuck.

    This trailer is DEFINITELY NOT SAFE FOR WORK!!!

    It's either going to be awesome, or a complete fucking turd. Possibly both.

    First the official description:
    ____________________________________________________________________________________

    This Los Angeles–set tale follows Ronnie, a man who runs a disco walking tour along with his browbeaten son, Brayden. When a sexy, alluring woman named Janet comes to take the tour, it begins a competition between father and son for her attentions. It also brings about the appearance of an oily, slimy, inhuman maniac who stalks the streets at night and strangles the innocent—soon dubbed “the Greasy Strangler.”


    Flush your expectations down the toilet, because you have never seen a slasher film or a father-son comedy like this before. Director Jim Hosking (THE ABCS OF DEATH 2) has made an outrageously off-kilter feature film debut that is equal parts disgusting, offensive, and manically entertaining. Featuring performances by Michael St. Michaels, Sky Elobar, and Elizabeth De Razzo that are destined for cult status,The Greasy Strangleralso enlists a dream team of talent behind the camera, including a deliriously fun score by Andrew Hung of Fuck Buttons and a few of the most prominent genre film producers from across the globe including Theo Brooks, Tim League, Ben Wheatley, Andrew Starke, Ant Timpson, Josh C. Waller, Daniel Noah, and Elijah Wood.

    I've watched that trailer three times, and it makes less sense each viewing. I think I need to see this movie. :jj:

    Exactly. :jj:

    I don't know how anyone can learn that movie exists, and then not want to see it. I feel like I don't even have a choice in the matter. I have to see it now.

    I'd probably watch it, wouldn't want to live next door to the mind that wrote that script though.

    I'll pass. Looks like it's trying to be weird for the sake of being weird. I don't even like John Waters movies so I'm pretty sure I won't like this.
