  1. Bob's rating of the film The Greasy Strangler

    If "Street Trash" and "Nightmare Stage" had a child, raised on junk food, cheap porn and trauma, this is probably what it would turn out to be. It's beyond bad taste right from the start, as if it has its own viewpoint on ugliness, grossness and mindlessness - so without excuse, it turns a shock into laugh, and laugh into horror, and horror into comedy, but with logic that somehow makes its own, twisted sense.

  3. Imagefix's rating of the film The Greasy Strangler

    Essentially, a one joke movie. The joke is not bad and there's some good stuff (the bit with the hot dog vendor; Elizabeth De Razzo is great as in all her scenes), but by the second or third time through the car wash, the STRANGLER is spent. The problem is likely in the screenplay—for all the effort invested in being gross/transgressive/weird, the narrative is pretty conventional.

  4. Nick Schwab's rating of the film The Greasy Strangler

    As an oddball John Waters-esque comedy film with B-movie horror elements, this is a cult oddity with plenty of strange humor and awkward laughs. The simple story lacks much depth and in its character arc, and even the act structure feels more like a series of skits than organic. However, it's gleefully humorously-offensive and offbeat, and despite its problems, Hosking has the makings of a huge cult film director.

  5. Comadozer's rating of the film The Greasy Strangler

    From borderline intolerable to golden prolapse. Got a touch of Rockerbilly Vampire and some Rubber and even a very violent Napoleon Dynamite murmur. The inarticulate paprika potato sequence is the most comedic example of austere dialogue I have nearly popped a synapse to since Trash Humpers. Three greasy thumbs and six toes up.

  6. Khashayar Mohammadi's rating of the film The Greasy Strangler

    Holy Fuck this film is so greasy and annoying I love it. Great Soundtrack.

  7. Ilona Tru's rating of the film The Greasy Strangler

  9. alcools's rating of the film The Greasy Strangler

    4.5 stars. It's not a film for bullshit artists but if you're a hootie tootie disco cutie, you'll like it.

  13. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Greasy Strangler

    Un filme que inicia de forma muy aburrida. Tiene una composición de sketchs de sitcom faltoso. Ya luego aparece ese grasiento asesino que me retrae a una creación de Henenlotter. Entonces ya se asoma una leve trama, así como bromas que van fijando filias y redundancias que van calando poco a poco. Frases pegajosas, la perversidad entonces arma su propio dialecto. Un filme que tiene alma de serie B. Mala y atractiva.

  14. dave gunn's rating of the film The Greasy Strangler

    This was like a Tim & Eric sketch that was directed by Quentin Dupieux; a more sophisticated John Waters film. The comparisons are clear and obvious, but this still remains one of the most unique, bizarre, and disturbing film experiences of my entire life. Yes, it is a burden to get through, but it's unforgettable.

  15. Jonia Caon's rating of the film The Greasy Strangler

    I had to look away too much grease <3

  16. Mathias Palmberg's rating of the film The Greasy Strangler

    A fun and inexplicable story well suited for a short movie but now drawn out into feature length running time. The comedy is gross and crude and sometimes fun but mostly tiring. The movie as such works for about 45 min and after that it becomes very repetetive. Destined for cult status for sure but nothing to get excited about.

  17. Felix Millan's rating of the film The Greasy Strangler

    I've thought about this film at least once every day since I've seen it.

  18. Material Salva+ion's rating of the film The Greasy Strangler

    J. Hosking is trying really hard to be the new John Waters but it's not getting there in any way or form. I was falling asleep after 15 minutes despite all the film's desperate attempts to entertain us with filthy grotesquery...It's not fun-funny-stupid, it's just plain stupid.

  19. saitosouta's rating of the film The Greasy Strangler

    During watching this, I think that a sound deviant is in a sound body. Refined cinematography with vivid color & sophisticated darkness, editing that has uniquely offbeat rhythm, exquisitely crappy pop music, simple but powerful father/son relationship plot. Based on these solid basics, Hosking flies to the utmost ends of the deviant. Pleasantly awful, vomittingly gross-out debut feature I GREASILY LOVED.

  20. Tiago Inácio's rating of the film The Greasy Strangler

    what can be said about a film like this? outrageously bizarre and weird. a comedy that sparsely makes us laugh. but is fascinating in its relentless quest for sheer absurdism. if Andy Kaufman starred in a John Waters film directed for Troma it'd be something like this. hootie tootie disco cutie, hootie tootie disco cutie hootie tootie disco cutie hootie tootie disco cutie hootie tootie disco cutie

  21. Artemis's rating of the film The Greasy Strangler

  22. Paolo Simeone's rating of the film The Greasy Strangler

    I'm pretty sure someone out there would say this is pure genious, while it's ulterior proof for the celebral death of audiences towards storytelling.

  23. Clat's rating of the film The Greasy Strangler

    Un mundo desagradable muy bien logrado pero se vuelve aburrida.

  24. gaporama's rating of the film The Greasy Strangler

    One of those instances in which a filmmaker tries so hard to make a weird movie it just ends up being annoying. Two stars for the first 30 minutes or so, before it becomes a loop of the same jokes and the yawns kick in.
