John Waters Movie Marathon: Serial Mom

Price

Everyone:FREE

Not suitable for children

John Waters has repeatedly declared Serial Mom his best film, a super-black comedy that expertly spoofs the true-crime and slasher genres. Kathleen Turner is magnificent as Beverly, a beguiling, domestic goddess driven to mass murder by the exasperating annoyances of her small-town friends and neighbours. Ridiculously fun scenes abound, including one in which an old woman is beaten to death with a leg of lamb, all to the strains of “Tomorrow” from Annie.

Dir: John Waters / 1994 / AA / 1h 35min
