      Todd R Was crying laughing from beginning to end. Seen it 4 times. Makes me laugh every time. This is a unique comedy that I adore. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/13/24 Full Review Michael A Like nothing I've seen before. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/27/23 Full Review Justin F This is by far the worst movie I have ever seen in my entire life. WHAT DID I JUST WATCH. I will never be the same. Unforgettable. RIP Oinkers. #Potato Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/11/23 Full Review Indrii V Haven´t laughed so much in years. They must be doing something right.. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/01/23 Full Review Peyton K This is movie like no other. I have watched all kinds of movies. I like finding the weird and wonderful hidden treasures away from typical Hollywood movies. And this gave me everything. !!! I never have expectations. Because I can fully enjoy a film for exactly what it is… and I thought this was brilliantly stupid. Hilarious. Dark and just fun! And has fantastic music! I couldn't stop laughing. And at times severely grossed out.. I loved it! If you have an odd sense of humour and are up for a laugh! Go for it!!! If you take films too seriously then pass. But you are messing out! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/02/23 Full Review Dean B Anyone who wrote anything negative about this movie is a "B-U-DOUBLE L-S-H-I-T, new word, A-R-T-I-S-T". I consumed many expensive high quality crème cocktails during this greasy affair, and have been reborn in the grease. The only editorial note I would give this movie would be,why Big Paul? I understand why he killed the hotdog vendor,he deserved it for not wanting to lose his license over hot dog grease regulations.#justiceforbigpaul Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Alexandra Heller-Nicholas The Blue Lenses You embrace The Greasy Strangler for what it is: surrender to its vile idiocy and have the time of your life, or walk away, dull, boring and oh-so-clever. Aug 25, 2018 Full Review Kristen Yoonsoo Kim Complex Despite its repulsiveness, The Greasy Strangler has a dreamlike quality about it: It's so un-life-like, that you're transported to a fantasy world that's unmistakably a cinematic creation. Feb 23, 2017 Full Review Andy Webster New York Times Its willful determination to be outré proves its undoing. Oct 27, 2016 Full Review Emma Wolfe SpookyAstronauts Definitely should have been a short film. Rated: 4/10 Apr 26, 2021 Full Review May Leitz Nyx Fears Make this the greasiest feast since that goose you cooked on Christmas...a good time for all, and a great excuse to let loose and become your most primal self. Mar 11, 2021 Full Review David Bax Battleship Pretension The Greasy Strangler becomes an exhausting slog. Such paltry ambitions make the film the exact opposite of everything it's longing to be. In a word, it's boring. Jan 5, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews
