Thoughts on The Greasy Strangler


Characters/PerformanceYou know what, I don’t want to talk about the characters in too much detail, we have the father son dynamic and a girl that is about it.

Performance wise, well some people just weren’t meant to be actors, that seems harsh but when you see this you will wonder how these ‘actors’ can take themselves serious after being in a film this bad.

StoryThere is a story here which mostly follows falling in love with the antisocial people I guess, I am really look for a needle in a haystack here to find anything.

Comedy/HorrorNope and Nope.

SettingsThis is the only remotely positive thing to come from this movie, we have a film that looks at how parts of LA don’t get the attention they once did.

Special EffectsThere are some.

Final ThoughtsThis is the last I will talk about this film, it was so bad I think I may have to give up watching films, just how did this get made?
