The best of the unreleased films
15 July 2004 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Of all of John Waters unreleased films, this one is the best. It actually has something of a story line (I don't go in much for the abstract stuff) and it has the first sightings of a lot of the JW regulars.

I believe it was filmed in JW's parent's backyard in Baltimore, MD.

If your a die hard JW fan, it is definitely worth seeing if it's possible.

I was only lucky enough to view it at a gallery in NYC.

In this day & age of DVD hysteria, I believe someday it will be released to the public along with Roman Candles, Mondo Trasho, & Multiple Maniacs.

Hail to the Pope of Trash!
