SLASHER MONTH: The Greasy Strangler (2016)

I guess that this movie is a slasher if it’s anything. I mean, I have no idea how to really categorize this film, which tells the story of Big Ronnie and his son Big Brayden who run a disco walking tour for a living when Ronnie isn’t eating food that’s filled with grease and then covered with grease. And then he goes out into the dark night and strangles people, then gets naked and cleans off all that grease in the car wash.

Look — if a movie where people’s eyes cartoonishly being popped out of their head and then cooked, as well as numerous gigantic cocks, offends you, perhaps there are many more movies to watch.

For some reason, Ronnie loves to inflict misery on his son, killing his friends, taking his girl and making fun of his dream of being a science fiction author. The only way that they can bond is, by the end, covering themselves in grease, strangling people and being killed by a firing squad.

Yeah, it’s not for everyone.

Somehow, director and co-writer Jim Hosking followed this up with an even more impenetrable movie, An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn. That’s an incredible accomplishment.

  1. Gotta agree there. Even if you don’t end up caring for it, it’s exactly the kind of zany film that people like us NEED to see.
