Weirdos Rejoice!

Good news for lovers of weird cinema- Frank Henenlotter has a new film coming out after about fifteen years of semi-retirement. Henenlotter's films are schlocky but also singular. He's a true original and has made such oddities as Basket Case, the story of a disturbed young man who keeps his deformed Siamese twin brother in a basket while hunting down the doctors who separated them, Brain Damage, the story of a young man with a talking parasite living on his back that injects hallucinogens into his brain and uses him to supply the parasite with brains, and Frankenhooker, which is pretty self-explanatory really.

Anyway, Henenlotter's newest film is called Bad Biology, and this is the description: "A twisted tale of love and weirdness. Driven by biological excess, a young man and woman search for sexual fulfillment, unaware of each other's existence. Unfortunately, they eventually meet, and the bonding of these two very unusual human beings ends in an explosive and ultimately over-the-top sexual experience, resulting in a truly godawful love story..."

Can you lose with a plot like that? The film is currently being edited.
