    Twisted Issues

    "TWISTED ISSUES is the debut film from underground art-barf filmmaker Charles Pinion. It has a killer with a skateboard attached to his foot and girls screaming. So, you could label it as a “slasher” without sounding like an ass. But the face-crushings and impalements are just there to anchor us. Pinion wasn’t interested in narrative or logic. He was interested in documenting the punk/skate/thrash scene of Gainsville, Florida in the late 1980s. So TWISTED ISSUES feels like an issue of…

Shot sometime in the early 1980s by director video shoppe owner/horror zine publisher Norbert Georges Moutier aka Norbert Moutier aka N.G. Mount, I’ve watched OGROFF four times in three years. Each successive viewing brings me closer to the plotless, gore-drenched, gutter-poetic truth. Yet, that truth constantly eludes me. This film shocks me. It…
