Just in time for the holidays... all singing, all dancing, all dead.  The first slasher musical. 

"Griffin goes John Waters one better, using the various perversions of his characters (as Mr. Pink Flamingos did in A Dirty Shame) to offer up some keen interpersonal insights. The most prominent perversion on display is 'furry-ism' - the desire to dress up like sports mascots (or amusement park characters) and get it on. Griffin handles the material in such a matter of fact way that after we get over the sight of actors dressed like giant rats and pandas, we begin to understand the attraction." - Bill Gibron, DVDTalk.com


"If you never experienced a Richard Griffin feature, you’ll pleasantly find out very quickly the director goes all out and the Providence, Rhode Island born director has a great 1970’s-1980’s homage style side dished with lots of vibrant colors and the abundance of suspending smoke." - Steven Lewis, It's Bloggin' Evil!


"I have to admit that I found myself being endeared to this ludicrous piece of shit." - Jeremy G. Butler, CHUD.com


Horror icon Ken Foree (Dawn of the Dead, Rob Zombie's Halloween) and cult favorite Lynn Lowry (George Romero's The Crazies, I Drink Your Blood) star in this hilarious and gruesome send up of the slasher genre.  

Kent Chubb (Trent Haaga) thinks life couldn't possibly get any worse when the mayor, his sociopath mother (Lynn Lowry), and the city council threaten to close down his nightclub Den O' Iniquity for 'acts of perversion.'  Enlisting the help of his father, Shank Chubb (Ken Foree), Kent and club regulars attempt to educate the town to the community service function of the club: providing a safe and welcoming environment for all the oddball local citizens.  Little do they know a serial killer has begun to pick off club employees one by one, and now even Kent's acid-flashback-prone hippie attorney can't help them out of this bloody mess... or keep his eyes off Kent's gorgeous wife (Debbie Rochon).

Plus a Something Weird short film!
