Glenn Danzig‘s attempt to break into filmmaking hasn’t quite gone the way he expected it to.
According to A/V Club, Danzig’s film debut is “one of the most batshit ridiculous horror anthology films ever put on screen.”
In their review, they note the room was packed with eager fans hoping for a great horror movie from the punk veteran. Instead though, “it was a deeply, powerfully, almost worryingly funny film, a misfire of the highest order.”
The article goes on to bash the film noting its “porno-esque production design” and claiming it “is funny on a level that most comedies can’t achieve.”
Danzig did a post-screening Q&A where he told the crowd they laughed at parts of the film he didn’t think were funny. The movie was clearly not intended to be funny, as he name-checked classic ’60s and ’70s horror directors as inspirations.
“I don’t wanna direct some Academy Award piece of shit,” says Danzig.
While the review was pretty brutal, the writer frequently mentions how great it is at being an awful movie and hopes people get to see it.
