If John Waters had directed an episode of Steptoe and Son it would probably look a bit like The Greasy Strangler. Big Ronnie (Michael St. Michaels) and Big Brayden (Sky Elobar) live in a state of squalor and run a ‘disco’ walking tour of their rundown local neighbourhood, where a lard-covered serial killer is on the loose. When Brayden falls for tourist Janet (Elizabeth De Razzo), Ronnie decides to cut his son’s grass and the scene is set for a love triangle that has to be seen to be disbelieved. Infused with a kooky rhythm and an eye for the absurd, Jim Hosking’s queasy and hilarious debut feature delivers a twisted father and son relationship filled with grotesque characters, hideous fashion, prosthetic genitals, quotable dialogue, and of course greasy strangling. The WTF? film of the year and destined for cult status.
