DAMN YOU, CHICO!!!!!!!!!!!!
4 May 2001 | by (The Mitten State, USA) – See all my reviews

Stark, low-budget sideshow of freaks set in the fictional town of Schlarb, Ohio. Right from the opening shot we are introduced to Dickie, Pricey, Crazy Connie, William, The Clapper, The Licker, and Caduceus: seven outlandish and very unique individuals whose misadventures immediately become the premise of the film. I found this gritty production to be oddly funny, extraordinarily absorbing, and curiously heartwarming. Harold's non-judgmental depictions of the characters, both the good and bad ones, were one of the many enjoyable aspects. This is from the same man who brought us the "Killer Nerd" movies, which were good but not as complex as this.
