★★★★ review by Alice Bishop on Letterboxd
In a film destined to become a cult classic, we are presented with a mickey-take of the very essence of comedy, soap opera, and horror. The Greasy Strangler is a satire of cinema itself and it’s made for a niche audience who are willing to see past expectation and tradition in a movie that is, for all intents and purposes, a completely competent family drama. The formalities of ‘good’ cinema are always present in The Greasy Strangler, even when the costumes, characters, and dialogue are as aberrant as they could possibly be and, if the Crayola sets and outfits aren’t enough to astound you, then Jim Hosking’s reinvention of what it means to interact are bound to leave you open-mouthed.

★★★½ review by laird on Letterboxd
Tim & Eric's Napoleon Dynamite (both better and worse than that sounds for all of the reasons one would expect). Will alienate 98% of the human population with its forceful weirdness, but I'm in that 2% that appreciates that this exists as 100% unfiltered irritainment. I hope that 2% finds this, they're gonna love it!
Warning: The odd cadence of the dialogue in this movie has a narcotic effect.

This movie was everything I wanted it to be. My stomach hurt from laughing so hard. So crude, offensive, and perfect.

Espíritu de tebeo undergroud capturado en imágenes cinematográficas. Demencialmente divertida... me siento sucio y feliz a la vez.
★★★★ review by Grimbo on Letterboxd
It's a hard film to rate of rate. On one hand it's like a grossout Napoleon Dynamite on the other it's an annoying experience.
Every time I think of something that annoyed me, I also think of something that made me chuckle.
It will probably become loved on repeat viewings if you can be bothered to do so!
