The Funniest Movie You’ve Never Seen: El Superbeasto
To hell with all those Academy Award winning flicks! To HELL I say! You want to laugh? Well, do ya? Do you want none of the pretentious hoity-toity bullshit that other films seem to ooze from every seam? Then you need nothing more than to watch this movie: The Haunted World of El Superbeasto!
NSFW! (Like you have to ask)
Directed (and various other movie production what not) by uber-freak, Rob Zombie, El Supe’s tells the animated story of a Luchador-masked porn flick actor/creator who’s slightly more well known in his own mind than to anyone else, really. The world as we know it has been replaced by a post-monster-apocalyptic meltdown and is now populated by all manner of horror icons from the Blob to Sid Haig.
Did I mention it’s animated? Sure is and in the style of Ralph Bakshi meets John Krikfalusi. Who, you might ask? Think Fritz the Cat meets Ren and Stimpy. There ya go. Anyway, the movie follows El Superbeasto (voiced by Tom Papa) in his quest for, well, a chick. He meets Velvet Von Black (Rosario Dawson) in the local dive bar and decides she needs to be doing him post haste. But, just then, from the darkness comes a brilliant ape, Otto, with a giant screw in his skull (Tom Kenny) who snatches her up and whisks her to the castle of one Dr. Satan (Paul Giamatti), who in turn believes her to be the one woman who can make him a true Devil thanks to the 666 on her ass.
El Supe’s grabs the attention of his sister, Suzi-X (Sheri Moon Zombie) and her exceptionally horny robotic right hand, Murray (Brian Posehn) to infiltrate with their kick-ass fighting styles. She is, after all, a total bad ass who spends a good portion of the film slaughtering undead Nazis. Awesome. Look, I don’t want to spoil this for you any more than I already have because you really need to see this.
Oh, and if you dig great tunes that sound like Weird Al gone horribly blue, you’ll love the soundtrack done by Hard and Phirm. Find this and watch it. NOW! Word of warning: this is absolutely not a kid friendly film. There are more sexual references and full-on nudity/sex in this movie than I’ve seen in a good long while. Yeah, you can thank me later.
