This Los Angeles-set tale follows Ronnie, a man who runs a Disco Walking Tour along with his browbeaten son Brayden. When a sexy, alluring woman comes to take the tour, it begins a competition between father and son for her attentions. It also signals the appearance of an oily, slimy inhuman maniac who stalks the streets at night and strangles the innocent—soon dubbed The Greasy Strangler. Lensed by the sicko behind festival-favorite short film RENEGADES, Jim Hosking, the film is a twisted hybrid of the outlandish, awkward comedy of Tim and Eric and the gross-out brilliance of trash auteur John Waters.

“Gross, hilarious, and absolutely uncompromising, [THE GREASY STRANGLER] has to be experienced to be believed.” —Consequence of Sound

“A welcome oasis of filth, depravity and shock, [THE GREASY STRANGLER] carries a playfulness that should inspire glorious, “what the f*ck?” huzzahs from the sort of people who wish John Waters would make movies like DESPERATE LIVING and PINK FLAMINGOES again.” —The Guardian
