Ronnie (Michael St. Michaels) and his son Brayden (Sky Elobar) run a disco walking tour business, where they tell tall tales about the early days of disco music while leading hapless tourists through the run-down parts of town. Then Brayden falls in love with one of their customers, Janet (Elizabeth De Razzo), and she really seems to like him back - but dad's dead-set against it, basically because he doesn't want to share his son with anyone. That doesn't mean though that he in any way or form would "love" Brayden, he just really likes to bully him, and likes Brayden to take care of him ... and then fart right into his face. And his farts are something out of this world for sure, as he likes to eat only extremely greasy food. Ultimately, Brayden goes out with her, but then Ronnie insists on going out with Janet as well ... and tries to get into her panties, but she refuses. And for a time, it seems as if Brayden and Janet were set to be a happy couple ... until one night, Ronnie manages to seduce her, and claim her for himself afterwards, much to the torment of his son.

But Ronnie also has a terrible secret, when he's enraged, he covers his whole body in grease and becomes the "Greasy Strangler", killing those who've wronged him. Of course, Ronnie's predilection for greasy food soon makes his son suspect him, and soon he has gathered some evidence, too, and tells Janet - who at this point decides to be Brayden's girlfriend again and help him in his quest to destroy the Greasy Strangler - but then Ronnie enters the scene all covered up in grease and kidnaps Janet. Brayden figures to defeat the Greasy Strangler he must become a greasy strangler himself and thus jumps into a vat of grease. All greased up, he has soon caught up with Ronnie and Janet - but what happens next is not what you might expect ...


There are those who say all stories ever have already been told - but for the heck of it, I haven't heard of a story resembling The Greasy Strangler before: Sure, on the outside it resembles a slasher movie, with all the plot points firmly in place - and yet, it has an almost hypnotic "Fuck it!"-attitude to it that really manages to capture one. That said, the film surely isn't for everyone as it features plenty of gross-out humour, fart jokes and the like, but what sets it apart from your typical gross-out comedy is its very carefree approach to pretty much everything and its willingness to go off into any direction at any time just to weirden out its audience.

In all, most certainly something resembling nothing you've ever seen before!
