Whoa, yet another blast from the past! Have never seen this one, but I remember it from when I first discovered Troma many moons ago in the pages of the shortlived Fantazia magazine. Amongst all the Rabid Grannies, Toxic Avengers and Nymphoid Barbarians there was an article on this little gem, which painted it as a kind of cross between Taxi Driver and Eraserhead. What sticks out for me was the mention of a scene whereby a coat hanger is used to tear into a junkies veins in order to get the next hit of heroin in there. I say 'scene' as this may actually be a real life incident relayed by Buddy Giovinazzo in the article, witnessed whilst writing the screenplay. Stay away from drugs kids!

It's actually my favorite film that troma release, and probably a top ten suicide inducing film for me. I love it. Any idea what is in the extra scenes?

Johnny said...

Not sure about the extra scenes, but i'll try to find out for ya.

is that the one with the baby in the (don't want to spoil it) at the end? if it is i saw it hungover once in college. i had a guy who lived on my floor who spoke very highly of it. gave me the creeping willies.

i'll have to give it a 2nd chance. sober this time.

Johnny said...

Wish I could answer that question but I actually have yet to see it!

Johnny 666 said...

yo, WIEC?, that is indeed the film you are remembering. Probably best to watch this one hangover free.

Johnny said...

Johnny, Troma isn't up for shipping out of country, unless it's Canada :(
