The saga of Schlarb, Ohio
3 December 1999 | by (Eatontown, NJ, USA) – See all my reviews

The film opens with a warning from star Toby Radloff like the one in James Whale's FRANKENSTEIN and even includes an intermission with a "courtesy flush."

This film is a journey into a real zone of twilight, a surreal exploration of the mind and strangeness. Radloff, star of KILLER NERD and BRIDE OF KILLER NERD, plays one of his strangest characters yet -- Dickie, the necrophiliac explorer of trash.

Just remember, if you dare to watch, that, as we are told at the end, "the squirrels were really dead." Warning: the film ends with an unsolved mystery which means that there could be a sequel. In other words, the saga of Schlarb, Ohio, has just begun.
