One Daughter's Taxidermy to the Dark Side, 15 April 2009
Author: Howard Cruse from United States

Calistra Zipper is a hoot. Craig Calman uses hyper-excited editing and a sensational mockumentary style to expand the 2000 radio encounter between Calistra, her devoted if deranged dad, and Howard Stern into a galloping orgy of family discord and dysfunction, all in the service of Anthony's personal crusade in behalf of Humanistic Taxidermy. Are cemeteries your friends or your enemies? Anthony Zipper wants you to ponder the question long and hard, as does Calistra's surviving, placard-wielding, serial-arsonist brother. If director-star Calman has his way, you will never again be quite so certain what to do with your newly dead loved ones.
