Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

Criminally Insane (1975)

Ethel Janowski: My heart is just fine 
as long as my stomach is not empty.

I saw this astonishing movie for only the first time this past weekend thanks to Vinegar Syndrome's recent blu-ray drop -- and you can pre-order the double-feature of it and writer-director Nick Millard's 1976 film Satan's Black Wedding on Amazon right now for a July 30th release -- and I am in love, y'all. Totally head over heels. I imagine at the time the movie was made in 1975 it was a "let's all laugh at the crazy fat lady" movie, but in 2024 Ethel Janowski is to my eyes a legend, a hero, an icon, a queen. All of those bastards had it coming, and she is to be emulated. Listen to Ethel, she will show you the way! Ethel Janowski is my lifestyle guru. She is my Goop! Any fans of this camp classic? I don't know where it's been all my life but I feel richer now that it's in me.
