Plot – Spoilers:
The filthiest person alive Divine, is hiding away in a trailer to avoid the pitfalls that come with being the filthiest person alive. She lives with her mother Edie who sits in a baby cot all day fetishing on eggs. Divine has a companion Cotton and an overgrown son Channing who’s into weird sex to impress the kinky Cotton.

Divine’s notoriety is resented by the Marble couple who most famously rear babies in their cellar. The Marbles think Divine’s fame is undeserved and are in a constant effort to wrest the ‘most filthiest’ title away from her.

Pink Flamingos’ notoriety stems from the bizarre fetishes some characters engage in, such as licking furniture and rooms as part of casting a spell. But the notoriety mostly comes from its bowel-grinding final scene. The Cut featured here includes deleted scenes (presented by John Waters at the end of the film) – these scenes are not particularly effed up, rather they were cut out during the editing process.

    Not that is bad, I really liked it, really had some freaky/offbeat scenes (ex: the footlicking scene). This movie have alot of bizzaro scenes. But it’s still enjoyable, the plot is,,,, interresting, the characters are colorful and some of the music used is kinda of catchy.
    Favorite moment had to be the wedding scene !!
    Recommend (!!), except if you don’t like weird fetishy-scenes. >:^]
    (I’m also real glad they had this movie here, thank you soooo much !!)

    Pretty disappointed this wasn’t fucked up like everyone made it to be. Super bad acting. But it’s very different so I liked it a little and I definitely loved Devine.

      I totally agree. Friends of mine touted this movie as hard to stomach so certain expectations I held going into watching the film weren’t met.

    Brilliantly revolting film from the King of Kitch! Loved it!

    This film will forever be a classic. One of the most important films in queer cinema. Obviously it isn’t gory or anything, but it’s surprising graphic for an American film (especially for that time). It still impresses me that Divine was able to eat real dog feces for this role. Talk about commitment!
