USA 1989 Released in 1992

Suburban teenager Bill Whitney (Billy Warlock) seems out of step, even more so than most kids his age. When his sister's boyfriend (Tim Bartell) introduces him to an underground society, Bill discovers a disturbing world of carnal expression, cannibalism and other dark desires. This disturbing tale of escape from the normal was the debut film for director Brian Yuzna (Bride of Re-Animator).

Brian Yuzna directs this slow burning horror romp about a seemingly misplaced youth troubled by what seems to be a teetering conspiracy that points back to his family as the antagonists. A bad script, some hit or miss acting, but a completely shocking and unpleasing(in a good way) climax that will leave you baffled if you are unaware of what's in store. Awesome practical special FX and a brilliant ending, leaves this psuedo-cheesy, cult classic embedded in your head and most definitely in my DVD collection.
