The Greasy Strangler (2016)

Plot Overview

Ronnie and his son Brayden run a walking Disco tour. Brayden becomes involved with a woman he meets on the tour and his father gets jealous. Meanwhile, Ronnie also likes to cover himself in grease and murder people who annoy him.


I thought the film was going to be weird, but it was weirder than I expected. I didn’t find it particularly funny, though I laughed a couple of times and some of the absurdity was amusing, but it was just not my kind of humour. And some stuff started grating on me after a while, since a lot of the humour was based around jokes going on for an awkwardly long time.

The two main actors were suitably disgusting and suited their roles. I liked the total unsexy nature of the entire film, it’s always a rare and welcome thing. The effects were silly and cheesy which was the overall tone of the film. I think I would’ve preferred it if it was more violent and dark, but it had its own unique feel that it may have been less memorable with.


The film got a bit annoying after a while and as mentioned, I just didn’t find it very funny. But I did like that it was pretty unique and did its own thing. It somehow felt very generic and very original at the same time.
