17 February 2003 | by (texas) – See all my reviews

This is a highly enjoyable remake!I haven't seen the 1959 original but plan to after seeing this!A very funny tale of an untalented artist who finds success after killing some folks and covering their bodies in plaster.Yes,it IS a comedy,though cut from the blackest cloth.The pretentious art world also gets a good skewering in the coolest John Waters fashion.Mink Stole is in this too.
