Masterpiece of stupid horror
Frank Henenlotter's masterpiece and one of the best horror films of all time. Gritty, seedy, depressing, bleak, deeply disturbing, fun, hilarious, and completely nuts. Transcends campy low budget 80's horror and becomes miserable art. Gory, over the top, and packed with extremely dark humor. A pretty rough depiction of addiction. It hits every note for me.
Worth a watch at least once. It's a unique film.
