        Not my favourite Waters effort. It is nonetheless blessed with some funny moments. Ideal for a sketch but not for a complete picture.

        Absolutely hilarious, simply the best of John waters... Katherine Turner is crazier than ever. The close ups of her face expressed the insanity within

        It has its moments but Oliver Stone made a better satire about fascination with violence and killers with 'Natural Born Killers'. Now think about the movie: sweet and banal town with a killer on the loose complimented with oddball humor where have we seen this before? Oh, that's right, ALL of 'Twin Peaks'. Mr. Lynch should be collecting some nice coin from a John Waters who, at this stage in his career, has very few ideas to work with. Turner's performance isn't as spectacular as people make it out to be.

        My favourite John Waters movie so far! This is one of those horror movies that are so outrageous they're hilarious, or in other words a black comedy (which is slightly more scary than funny). I highly recommend this movie.
