The Great Red North

thingsposter

Obviously inspired by Dali, Lynch, Cronenberg, Romero, Evil Dead, Bob and Doug McKenzie and mass quantities of cheap beer, this 1989 Canadian Super 8 movie could best be described as “abstract Schlock”. A couple of Canuckleheads named Don and Fred visit their buddy Doug, whose wife has just given birth to a litter of the titular things…large ant-like monsters with xenomorph teeth….and the rest of the movie is a swirling miasma of gore, acid freakout music, lowbrow humor, haunted house sounds, horrendous dubbing, copious reverb and just indefinable whatthefuckness…
