MONDO WEIRDO: A TRIP TO PARANOIA PARADISE

Carl Andersen, Austria, 1990, Cult Epics, Arthouse

Carl Andersen’s films are the European answer to the Cinema of Transgression -- except more extreme, eccentric, surreal and genuinely erotic.

MONDO WEIRDO wallows in smut, sleaze, gore, splatter, and dark comedy and is set in an underground world where both vampires and punk rockers engage in straight, lesbian & gay hardcore sex to the highly addictive, hypnotic electro music of Model D’oo.

“Right off the bat, graphic flashes of female anatomy appear as a narrator warns us we're about to experience ‘one of the most bizarre cases in history of disturbed sexuality’ and ‘not for the squeamish.’ No kidding! Almost entirely devoid of dialogue and sporting a very effective soundtrack mixing electronics, rock, and musique concrete, this is definitely not your average button-pushing film as it weaves together arthouse malaise, splashes of gore, and brief bits of hardcore into a stew alternately recalling everyone from Richard Kern to John Waters to Rinse Dream.” (Nathaniel Thompson, Mondo Digital)
