Review: The Misled Romance of Cannibal Girl and Incest Boy by Brian Kirst
A combination of old school silent film and George Romero-like grisliness, The Misled Romance of Cannibal Girl and Incest Boy is truly amusing and shockingly fun. Acted with sweet heart (literally) by dark beauty Janine Laurent and goofily charming Paul Lucero, TMROCGAIB bottles gut strewn mayhem and quirky Shakespearian tragedy into 13 tight minutes.
In fact, you know you’re immediately in for a treat when Laurent enthusiastically smashes in and then eats from the obliterated skull of Troma legend Lloyd Kaufman within the first moments of this mini-epic. Director Richard Taylor imbues the project with a demented spirit and he is assisted mightily by Tim Johnson’s techno circus meets Laurel and Hardy score.
The brilliant score and the film (plus multiple extras) are available from this sweetly sadistic crew’s myspace page. Be sure to visit with Taylor and crew soon as horrific inventiveness such as theirs is rare and extremely welcome in the oft-crowded hallways of Horror High.
