is a film that can be judged by its title."
by Dennis Schwartz
anything goes super low-budget zany sleaze-fest cult
underground film. Nick Zedd ("Geek
Maggot Bingo"/"The Bogus Man"/"Thrust in Me") is an
underground filmmaker, musician, author and artist
based in NYC, who coined the term Cinema of
Transgression to describe a group of
like-minded filmmakers using shock values and black
humor in their films.
If the perversity or absurd story doesn't put you off, then the bad acting should. A mainstream audience would be pissed off if they had to sit through such an anti-movie. This is a film that can be judged by its title.
