The opening credits are spoken aloud instead of being printed on the screen. Over a still photograph of Floraine Connors, the announcer declares: "Starring the very lovely and talented Floraine Connors, whom we see pictured here. Also starring the extremely lovely and talented Bob Cowan, not pictured here." See more »
Wow, do the Kuchar brother films stink--or at least the three that are packaged together on a recent DVD release. It includes this film, SINS OF THE FLESHAPOIDS (the worst of the three) and THE SECRET OF WENDEL SAMSON.
The only reason I could see anyone wanting to see this film is to observe the clear inspiration for John Waters' MONDO TRASHO two years later. While I wouldn't say Waters stole any of this Kuchar film, he did borrow heavily and was influenced by it. The most obvious ways they are similar is that both films were shot in black & white using a cheap camera and had bizarre and ridiculous music slapped onto the films. Also, the introduction shows a person who is made up to look almost exactly like Divine in TRASHO, though sadly this is really a woman. But the lipstick, hair and cheap whore fashions are clearly much of the inspiration for Waters and Divine--as is the scene later in the film of the invalid woman--who is a guy in drag. Also, late in the film, you see a dog defecating for no apparent reason and this most likely inspired Waters' disgusting dog crap eating scene at the end of PINK FLAMINGOS. Unlike Waters, though, most of this film isn't that funny--though at least it tried occasionally. I did like the "walk the dog" scene but otherwise, it all fell very flat.
This is a film simply so awful and cheap and amateurish, you have to see it to believe it. If I tried to describe it, it might sound as if the film isn't that bad...and believe me, it is.
By the way, I have no idea what a Sluck is. There is a town of this name in Belarus, though I doubt if this is why the film has this bizarre title.
