'The Greasy Strangler: Special Director's Edition'
(Michael St. Michaels, Sky Elobar, Elizabeth De Razzo, Darrell Keith Harris, Abdoulaye Ngom, et al / Blu-ray / NR / (2016) 2019 / Film Rise - MVD Visual)

Overview: When Big Ronnie and his son Brayden meet female tourist Janet on Big Ronnie's Disco Walking Tour - the best and only disco walking tour in the city - a fight for Janet's heart erupts between father and son, and the infamous Greasy Strangler is unleashed.

Blu-ray Verdict: Apparently the guy who made this movie was heavily influenced by "The Young Ones" and David Lynch. This was neither as funny as the former and much less weird than the latter. Exactly what it was trying to achieve I am unsure, but it did leave me feeling a little queasy, if that was the director's mission!

Ergo, 'The Greasy Strangler' is downright awful, simply dreadful, and completely utterly repulsive!

In fact, if you're looking for a film that mortifies the very fiber of your being, this is the film for you!

Morbidly obese women greased up and ready for 72 year-old's to strangle them is what awaits you if you watch this wretched excuse for an F-Movie!

Not to mention a buttered greased up naked fat man running around with his small flaccid genitalia flailing of which you cannot unsee. Nowhere in this film did any of the concepts tie together to form a plausible even remotely distinguishable resolution.

The acting is simply terrible. The choices made by the actors are conflicting and confusing. The hygiene of the actors is extraordinarily unacceptable and visually disturbing!

The story line is confusing and hastily thrown together and what seems to be poor choices concerning free association with any form of a plot line making sense whatsoever.

So, if you DO enjoy a collage of hastily pieced together unexplainable acts with mortifying choices made from where nightmares have arisen then this is, without a shadow of a doubt, the film for you! Have fun, my pretty things! Have fun! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.85:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Features of:
