Avg Rating: 4.4 / 5. Voted: 105

No one cared thus far. Do you?

AKA:
Directed by: John Waters
Starring: Kathleen Turner (Mom), Sam Waterston (Dad), Matthew Lillard (Chip), Ricki Lake (Misty), Justin Whalin (Scotty Barnhill), Patty Hearst (Juror), Traci Lords (Carl’s girlfriend)
Country: United States
Language: English (Eng Subs)
Runtime: 01:33:43
Genres: Serial Killers, Courtroom Drama, Family

Plot – Spoilers:
Another from John Waters lampooning the fucked up American family and their facade of functionality by having regular meals together.

The Sutphins with their manicured lawns are the perfect middle-class family with Dad a successful dentist, Mom an attractive genial lady whom the garbagemen dote on, and kids evenly distributed among genders with relatively normal interests and issues.

But Mom is ill and degenerating by the hour. What begins as vulgar prank calls to a divorced neighbor lady who stole her parking slot, soon turns into killing anyone who pisses her off.

Random:
Traci Lords and Patty Hearst appear in cameos – a not-so ironic casting choice.

not exactly as, well, dark as other john waters’ material but still has his typical traits that make it worthwhile. kathleen turner really steals the show! rip suzanne somers.

GAS CHAMBER.

i don’t know if this counts as fucked up minus the gore, which is sparse – though it does its job and doesn’t feel as fake as other film effects ive seen in some movies – but it was hilarious. i had to kinda suspend my disbelief at how nobody saw the obvious fingerprints? are the detectives just retarded? maybe. also the “scariest” part was sam waterston and kathleen turner’s laughable sex scene.

also funny that shaggy from scooby doo post-2000s was in this.

That final shot of the blood running down over the white shoes ( after Labor Day ! ) says all that needs to be said about this film. I still am amazed by John Waters. I don’t think that he knows how to make a bad film…and thank fuck for that.
