Quite an amazing piece of utter nonsense

Reporter Graig Milford (David Warbeck) has seen it all… Vietnam war crimes, cannibal tribes, political shenanigans and what not else. It’s all fine by him and nowadays he’s comfortable working for television in Miami. After interviewing Dr. Schweiker ‘The Nazi’ (Sergio Rossi) about a scientific breakthrough, involving the solution to a puzzling enigma of genetic engeneering, he gets permission to hang around the lab to shoot some additional footage of the newly bred organism. Milford doesn’t mind, so hanging around the lab is what he does. But an accidental electrocution causes the tiny organism – which looks like strawberry-flavored jelly pudding sprinkled with bits of puke – to die… briefly, as it comes back to life seconds later. But then, suddenly, the room is filled with ghostly imagery and eerie moaning sounds. What the hell? Luckily, Milford still had his camera rolling…

Otis ‘n’ Dwayne looks trashy, nasty & tasty

Friday, February 5th, 2010 by Vomitron -

We’ve kindly been brought to the attention of a new independent film in the final stages of post-production, named Otis ‘n’ Dwayne.

Otis n Dwayne looks trashy, nasty & tasty   OnD bannerCR news

The synopsis reads a little like this:

“Two androgynous creatures embark on a psychotronic journey of self-discovery in a cruel, unusual and mostly male world. This comedy about two gay androids abandoned in a New Jersey suburb inhabited by God, the devil, and other lowlifes is a f*cked up movie for f*cked up times.”

Czech title:
Valerie a týden divu

Bleed little girl, bleed.

Thirteen year old Valerie (Jaroslava Schallerová) – who looks like a young Britt Ekland – lives with her grandmother (Helena Anýzová) in a large house. One day, missionary / actor-player / complete weirdo Tchor-konstábl (Jirí Prýmek) appears in the town with Orlík (Petr Kopriva) – who may have already been there – and quickly becomes interested in grandmother and Valerie. There’s much more to it than that as the film unfolds like a fever dream story of incest, lesbianism, sexual-awaking, molestation, sexuality, marriage as well as vampires, weasels and religion….
