This Los Angeles-set tale follows Big Ronnie, a man who runs a disco walking tour along with his browbeaten son, Brayden. When a sexy, alluring woman named Janet comes to take the tour, it begins a competition between father and son for her attentions. It also brings about the appearance of an oily, slimy, inhuman maniac who stalks the streets at night and strangles the innocent...Soon dubbed The Greasy Strangler!
Flush your expectations down the toilet, because you have never seen a slasher film or a father-son comedy like this before. Writer/Director Jim Hosking has made an outrageously off-kilter feature film debut that is equal parts disgusting, offensive, and manically entertaining. The movie features performances by Michael St. Michaels, Sky Elobar, and Elizabeth De Razzo.
The Greasy Strangler is destined for cult status, and today we have the gruesome Red Band trailer. This sick and twisted Drafthouse release enlists a dream team of talent behind the camera. This Includes a deliriously fun score by Andrew Hung of Fuck Buttons and a few of the most prominent genre film producers from across the globe including Theo Brooks, Tim League, Ben Wheatley, Andrew Starke, Ant Timpson, Josh C. Waller, Daniel Noah, and Elijah Wood.
Jim Hosking and Toby Harvard wrote this trashy masterpiece that is sure to be a cult favorite and a future staple at Midnight movie showings. It had its World Premiere at the Sundance Film Festival 2016, and managed to shock the usually unmoving crowds at SXSW 2016. The movie opens in theaters on October 7th, arriving the same day on VOD, just in time for the Halloween season.
The Greasy Strangler certainly has its work cut out for it this fall. It will be opening in limited release against such Oscar heavy hitters as The Birth of a Nation and Girl on a Train, along with the holiday-themed thriller Friend Request. Also opening in this frame is the family friendly comedy Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life. But The Greasy Strangler promises to be the most offensive, outrageous and dirty movie of the bunch. Trust us, this is going to be unlike anything you've ever seen. And it is not for the easily offended. Here is the red band trailer courtesy of Drafhouse. It's pretty gross and definitely NSFW. You've been warned.
