Trivia

Each act was sent to a different independent adult video company, who specialised in enacting fetish scenarios submitted by amateurs, for a price. Chatman then assembled the four completed segments (which feature nudity but no actual sexual content) into Final Flesh, with none of the actors or crew were supposedly the wiser about the satiric nature of the project."

Masterpiece
17 October 2017 | by brockwest8See all my reviews

Why has no one reviewed this yet? If you love Wonder Showzen and read about how this was made you will love this film.

The originator of this film apparently sent out four scripts to four different companies that make custom fetish porn (that's a thing, I guess) and made the scripts as nonsensical and non-sequitur filled as possible. The actors and the directors were not aware this was hilarious. They got paid. It is hilarious, but only if you're in on the joke.

I honestly had to pause the movie several times because I was laughing so hard it hurt. It is difficult to believe that the people you are watching would even attempt to take the material seriously.

The movie is divided into four parts and the third is definitely the one section that drags the most. The last part, part four, is indisputably the greatest, and you will know why it was saved for the finale very quickly.

This may be the funniest film ever made. Actors paid to create anyone's deepest fantasy unconsciously becoming pawns in this one madman's insidious scheme to make a movie. Brilliant.
