Watched this one last night for the first time in at least six years and forgot just how much it feels like something S.F. Brownrigg would have made. Nick Phillips (Millard) brings the same sort of negative and clinical vibe to this one that he does to his softcore work, you know something is not quite right even when nothing is happening. It's a seedy movie, not super gory but gory enough (though the effects are so low budget they never quite convince).

Some very strange, sordid atmosphere here. Priscilla Alden is pretty awesome as 'Crazy Fat Ethyl' and I think she, more than any other factor at work here including Millard's work, makes the movie succeed.

I still haven't seen this. The double feature dvd had SATAN'S BLACK WEDDING too, right? I need to score that soon, assuming it's findable still. The Brownrigg comparison certainly speaks to me.

Yep, it's got Satan's Black Wedding and Crazy Fat Ethyl (the sequel) on it. So it's technically a triple feature.

The disc is out of stock on Amazon now, not sure if it's out of print or not. I found it at Kim's on the shelf for $9.99 two weeks ago and snagged it.

I dig this movie. I got it off the auction site a number of years ago for $3. So many greats lines. I love when her sister's boyfriend says something like "I'm gonna be honest with you for once. All women deserve a good beating, especially you" and then he slaps her in freeze frame.

Unless I am remember it all wrong, which is entirely possible.

Also, if memory serves me, the sequel wasn't finished was it?

Close. He slaps her, and then he slaps her again in bad slow motion.

Haven't watched it yet.

Weird but fun but unpleasant movie.

It is unpleasant, that's true. White, very fat, female cannibals are more disturbing than jungle cannibals.

No more turkey sandwiches.

Looks fun. I'll have to keep an eye out for it.

I quite like CRIMINALLY INSAME. Here's a scan of the release I have (altho this is a different tape). The Danish title reads "250 Pound Butcher". :peewee:
