Storyline

A rookie FBI agent, Jo Dee Foster (Billy Zane), has been assigned to work on the case of the Psycho Killer, a killer who has killed over 120 people. But to find out more about the Psycho Killer, Jo is forced to meet Dr. Animal Cannibal Pizza (Dom DeLuise), a famous doctor turned cannibal who ate pizzas with human body parts. Meanwhile, Jo's girlfriend, Jane Wine (Charlene Tilton), has just stolen $400,000 in cash from her money-hungry boss, Mr. Laurel (Rip Taylor), so she and Jo can be happy, but gets lost in a really horrible storm, caused mostly by a special effects crew behind her car, and stops at the Cemetery Motel, where the owner, Antonio Motel (Ezio Greggio), is dominated by his insane mother ('Shelly Winters').

Excellent comedy!
1 April 2002 | by (Sweden, Umeå) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie! it never takes a pause you just get pumped with absurd humor all the time through. Anyway many people dislike it very much, and i can understand them, this is not a movie for the average people. The humor is very special och sick! :)

So if you like unique and odd movies you should see it now!! and if you dont think you'll like it, see it anyway but be sure to stay up all night and turn it on, well sometime around 5:30 in the morning =)

Great film!
