Jim Hosking"s The Greasy Strangler (2016) is releasing in movie theaters on October 7, 2016, and on VOD this October 7, 2016, via FilmRise. The Greasy Strangler is not a film I have the least bit interest in personally. There seems to be too much dry humor in this comedy horror thriller film. The Greasy Strangler premiered at the Sundance Film Festival 2016. Michael St. Michaels, Sky Elobar, and Elizabeth De Razzo star in The Greasy Strangler.

This Los Angeles-set tale follows Big Ronnie, a man who runs a disco walking tour along with his browbeaten son, Brayden. When a sexy, alluring woman named Janet comes to take the tour, it begins a competition between father and son for her attentions. It also brings about the appearance of an oily, slimy, inhuman maniac who stalks the streets at night and strangles the innocent--soon dubbed "the Greasy Strangler."

Flush your expectations down the toilet, because you have never seen a slasher film or a father-son comedy like this before. Writer/Director Jim Hosking has made an outrageously off-kilter feature film debut that is equal parts disgusting, offensive, and manically entertaining. Featuring performances by Michael St. Michaels, Sky Elobar, and Elizabeth De Razzo that are destined for cult status, The Greasy Strangler also enlists a dream team of talent behind the camera, including a deliriously fun score by Andrew Hung of F*ck Buttons and a few of the most prominent genre film producers from across the globe including Theo Brooks, Tim League, Ben Wheatley, Andrew Starke, Ant Timpson, Josh C. Waller, Daniel Noah, and Elijah Wood.
