Geek Maggot Bingo ★ The Freak from Suckweasel Mountain 1983

It's too bad director Zedd waited until mid”Bingo” to post a sign warning “Leave Now, It Isn't Going Get Any Better!” Conceived by the New York underground's don of the “Cinema of Transgression” to be an off-the-rack cult classic, this horror spoof is too long on in-jokes and short on substance to earn its number in the cult hall of fame. It does, however, boast Death as Scumbalina the vampire queen and Hell as a punk cowboy crooner (before alternative country hit the airwaves). TV horrormeister Zacherle narrates. 70m/C VHS, DVD . Robert Andrews, Richard Hell, Donna Death, Brenda Bergman, Tyler Smith, Bruno Zeus, John Zacherle; D: Nick Zedd; W: Nick Zedd; C: Nick Zedd.
