Yes, this movie is very strange. VERY STRANGE. One of the strangest movies I've ever seen, I can see why Troma picked it up.

There's just something odd about it that you don't see in other movies. Maybe it's the counselor's facial expressions or the overacting or the weird idea that plastering hair onto your face to hide a giant scar is gonna make everyone you used to know not recognize you and suddenly think you are incredibly sexy.

Or maybe it's the weird characters, or maybe it's Marlon Jackson's pleasant voice or the counselor's unemotional, cordial way of speaking. I think it's mainly his face that makes the movie so strange. This guy really has a weird face and a strange way of moving his face around.

Or maybe the effect of the movie comes in part from why are people storing pillows, stuffed animals and blown up beach balls in their lockers at school? What is with the triumphant scene of the dude in the boiler room reaching out to touch the pipes like he's in mechanical heaven or something??

And what is with the counselor's dream where some old lady comes to attack him? It has nothing to do with the movie at all.

His wife is strange, too. Even though she takes advantage of his money and seems slimey for it, she's really the only one who makes much sense when she opens here mouth. Everyone else is crazed.

And the best part is the last line. It leaves you lingering like, "what? that's it? how can they end it like that?" It's not really an ending.

And what's with the weird nude scene where the girl is standing there naked with her arms out looking like a yeti or something? It's not very sexy, it's just weird. and her accent? is that real?

So rent this one, you will be utterly confused while visions of this guy's face (namely his eyes) will haunt you for at least two days. Then you'll think about the movie on and off for the rest of the week and somehow feel an urge to watch it again to see if you can catch something the second time around that will make the movie make sense in your mind. In actuality, the movie is even stranger the second time around.
