The Greasy Strangler is a ready-made midnight movie, which made it only appropriate for a midnight screening at Bruce Campbell’s Horror Film Festival here in Chicago earlier this month. Its gleefully deliberate attempts to get you to run screaming from the theater generally take one of two forms: First, giant tubs of yellowish-grey lard into which characters dunk their dinners as well as themselves, coating everything in a thick, mucous-like goop. Second, prosthetic nudity and graphic sex. (The amount of stunt dick in this movie cannot be overstated.)

If, for some reason, you’re the kind of warped sicko who finds that latter prospect intriguing, you’ll love the new red-band trailer for the film that was released earlier today. The camera doesn’t lovingly linger on the grotesque anatomy on display the way it does in the film, but overall this trailer gives you a better idea of what you’re actually in for when you sit down for a viewing of The Greasy Strangler—this writer’s exact words were, “it’s like if Tim & Eric made a porno”than earlier promotional materials.

Seriously, though, it’s the lard that’ll really get you. Only the brave need apply when The Greasy Strangler slimes theaters on October 7.
