Viewing Notes

Accidentally programmed a Melbourne, Australia double feature!

First off, I love, love, love the weird electronic soundtrack which sounds like a mix of Richard H. Kirk’s (of Cabaret Voltaire) side projects and music from Mr. Oizo (nĂ© Quentin Dupieux). It goes a long way towards setting the tone and keeping it all stitched together despite some weird, non-sensical plot segues from time to time.

Secondly the practical FX are excellent and there’s plenty of fun, gross stuff to keep you entertained even if you’re thinking “WTF” about the plot.

Definitely an absurdist precursor (and an inspiration one would think) to movies like RUBBER. This would be a lot of fun at a proper movie night.
