review by
Mike Haberfelner

Mrs. Wænd (Mickey Faerch) gives birth to twins, Justin (Dean Milos) and Ed (Matt McCarthy) - but she only likes Justin, and wishes for Ed to just die. Thing is, Ed doesn't die, but at age 30 Justin is killed by killer clowns. Mom just chases away Ed after this.

At the same time, Linda (Fay Lytle) is to have a baby, but instead she gives birth to a severed head only. This upsets her boyfriend Jesse (David Moneymaker) so much that he passes out, bangs his head really bad, and dies. But Dr. Necrophilus (Art Roberts), local mad scientist with a predilection for limb transplants, just replaces Jesse's head with the head Linda has just given birth to, uploads Jesse's memories, et voilà, a new Jesse (now played by Josh Connor). Thing is, the new Jesse isn't an awfully nice person, in fact he goes mental pretty soon to become Booger the Killer Clown.

Linda isn't happy about these developments regarding her boyfriend ... but then she meets Ed, the two fall in love, marry, and everyone's just sooo happy - until Jesse aka Booger appears on the scene and wants Linda back ... and this is when things really start to go mad!!!

 

Above synopsis might not make the most perfect of senses, and believe me, the finale gets even wilder, much wilder - but that's all very ok, because it's futile to find strict narrative reason in The Dark Side of the Womb, which the birthing scene that starts the movie should already have made pretty clear. Basically, The Dark Side of the Womb is a movie of the "They did not just do THAT?!?" variety, where a story that's unhinged from the beginning gets more so at every twist and turn. Why this film works rather well (in its odd sort of way) is that it isn't played merely for the laughs, that it has its moments where it shows heart, where it shocks, and where it just (intentionally) confuses the audience, and that it manages to show constraint every now and again to let the lunacy break out even wilder then.

Maybe not for everybody, but those who don't scare away from the absurd, bizarre and unreal should really give it a look!
