Pump it up and feel the burn during FUNKY FITNESS MONTH at Mondo Mondays, featuring an energizing array of hilariously health-obsessed exploitation flicks filled to the max with delicious (low-fat) cheesiness!
“A great and gory party film … a real slapstick splatter fest!” – Bloody Disgusting
“The first phase is hallucinogenic … the second phase is glandular … and the third phase is … BODY MELT!” The residents of Pebbles Court are just dying to get healthy in this gloriously gruesome Ozploitation splatter flick about a mysterious diet pill that melts the pounds away – literally! It’s a sunny day in suburbia. Suddenly, a hideously deformed dying man disrupts the peace, crashing his car in the idyllic neighborhood of Pebbles Court. He’s the victim of the experimental drug Vimuville, marketed as a “dietary supplement,” which has apparently malfunctioned in a major way. Unfortunately, he arrives too late to warn the townspeople against trying the free sample pills that were dropped in their mailbox by a supposedly respectable pharmaceutical company. Soon, the entire town is jumping on the healthy lifestyle bandwagon, and before they can say “Get Fit,” they’re all deforming, mutating and exploding … and not in the good way! What’s the terrifying secret behind Vimuville? Why is it so damned effective? And exactly how are you supposed to look sexy when your newly-healthy body has melted into hot fondue? A nasty, wacky and hilariously gross Aussie horror flick in the tradition of Peter Jackson’s Bad Taste, crammed full of nudity, mutations, mucous, in-breeding, mad science, killer placenta, vomitus maximus, erectile eruption, cranial collapse and human rib removal, this is some seriously vile fun! (Dir. by Philip Brophy, 1993, Australia, 81 mins., Not Rated)
