The Greasy Strangler

About

This Los Angeles–set tale follows 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. Sundance Film Festival short film alumni Jim Hosking (Renegades, 2010) makes an outrageously off-kilter feature film debut that is equal parts disgusting, offensive, and manically entertaining. Featuring performances by Michael St. Michaels, Sky Elobar, and Elizabeth De Razzo that are destined for cult status, The Greasy Strangler also enlists a dream team of talent behind the camera, including a deliriously fun lo-fi score by Andrew Hung of Fuck Buttons and a few of the most prominent genre film producers from across the globe for this triumph of the bizarre.
