Watch: Another Weird Trailer for Wacky Horror 'The Greasy Strangler'
"Kiss my cheeks, cherry lips." FilmRise has released a second trailer for the wacky horror film The Greasy Strangler, which premiered at Sundance this year to quite a bit of acclaim. The first teaser trailer for this was pretty messed up, focusing more on the gore and gross side of this film. This new trailer is packed full of sex and nudity, the kind you don't want to see, but that's what this film is all about. The surreal horror stars Michael St. Michaels as Big Ronnie, along with Sky Elobar as Big Brayden, plus Elizabeth De Razzo and Gil Gex. It's about an aging disco enthusiast who turns into a creepy, grease-covered strangler at night. The other story twist revealed in this trailer is the brutal father-son rivalry for the same woman. Get greasy.
Here's the new highly-NSFW official trailer for Jim Hosking's The Greasy Strangler, from YouTube:
The Los Angeles-set "surreal, midnight-horror comedy" follows Ronnie, a man who runs a Disco Walking tour along with his browbeaten son, Brayden. When a sexy, alluring woman comes to take the tour, it begins a competition between father and son for her attentions. It also signals the appearance of an oily, slimy inhuman maniac who stalks the streets at night and strangles the innocent, soon dubbed "The Greasy Strangler." The Greasy Strangler is directed by filmmaker Jim Hosking, making his feature debut after a number of shorts including on segment in "The ABCs of Death". The script is written by Toby Harvard and Jim Hosking. Produced by Timpson Films, Drafthouse Films and Elijah Wood's SpectreVision. It first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and opens in select theaters starting October 7th this fall.

What's great about this characters is that they manage somehow to have a sex life. And that's enough information about the film for me. Btw, don't get me wrong, I'm glad they have a sex life ...

Even flies have a sex life. But who's gonna pay to watch them doing their dirty thing? ;D

I know tarek, I just respect the fact that evolution still works in some aspects. Buy yeah, don't make me watch all of that ... Cheers ...

Plenty of people as long as it's entertaining, which is what this movie looks like (at least for someone with a certain offbeat sense of humor like me).

Well, good for you. It takes all sorts to make a world. ;D I was talking about flies by the way.

I was also responding to the sentiment about flies. Let me leave you with a quote from Don Hertfeldt: "You could make a cartoon in crayons about a red square that falls in unrequited love with a blue circle, and there wouldn’t be a dry eye in the house if you know how to tell a story." I say the same applies to comedy.

The last weird art film I saw was Gummo, and this looks like a more colorful version of that. HARD PASS.
