Holy Sweet Sewer
1 January 2006 | by JSlickSee all my reviews

Jeez, never judge a flick by its cover. I had never heard anything about this movie, I had stumbled upon it by accident one day. I had found the movie at the local video store,who carry rare and hard to find movies. What caught my eye was the "For Mature Audiences Only" written on the back. When I started to view, the oddness started to take its course. First the virginity pageant, then the guy on the bike who was taking a squirt and splashing it in the air, followed by John Vernon's urinating golden penis, the onslaught just continued there on after. As the viewer watches the sugar woman dance with her privates inches from little boys faces to the urine-vomit-poop party which ensues near the ending. The viewer is rewarded for "hanging in there" at the finale when the awesomely beautiful Carole Laure takes a masturbatory bath in chocolate syrup. Unlike any other film I've seen. Not for the faint!!
