“One of the most unique and committed visions in independent horror... a testament to the fact that even the greatest amount of bad taste can succeed via good wit” – Michael Gingold, FANGORIA

“Mixing loads of gore, sexual allegories that would make a young Cronenberg blush and a sense of humour that’s so tongue in cheek it will make your gums bleed, BAD BIOLOGY marks a peak in a career of high points” - Michael Panduro, BLOODY DISGUSTING

Ladies and gentleman, lovers of the strange and apostles of the church of SIN-ema, after 16 years away from filmmaking, Uncle Frank is back! Frank Henenlotter that is, mad indie maverick behind BRAIN DAMAGE, FRANKENHOOKER and the BASKET CASE films (he’s also one of John Waters’ favourites). And has he ever worked to make up for lost time!

Jennifer (Charlee Danielson) is a hip fetish/fashion photographer whose sexually charged work is equally celebrated and decried for pushing the limits of good taste. Oh, and she also has seven clits and an equally amped-up sex drive that sometimes leads her to kill partners in an explosive rush of ecstasy! Her metabolism is highly irregular in a multitude of exciting ways too, and if she gets knocked up, the fetus will grow and be birthed in a matter of several hugely intense minutes. Nevertheless, Jennifer loves to bareback, and every now and then, a mutated, living fetus is found in a hotel bathtub or an abandoned car. All fine and good, but will she ever be able to find true love?! She just might, because it so happens that a man with a mutated, muscular penis happens to live in her neighbourhood! He’s feeling just as loveless and alone, and has lately taken to injecting animal tranquilizers into his ever-thrashing member in the hopes of calming it the hell down. Even more promising, his sex life is as much a spectacular train wreck as Jennifer’s is. Is that love in the air? Or is it something... stickier?

BAD BIOLOGY is easily Henenlotter’s most twisted and perverse work to date, and that’s really saying something! Co-scripted and co-produced with rapper and long-time Henenlotter fan R.A. Thorburn (R.A. the Rugged Man), and co-edited by Scooter McCrae (SHATTERDEAD), this is a film that flies its freak flag high and doesn’t even try to appease the multiplex normals. Its recent launch at the Philadelphia Film Festival had audiences in stitches and you, dear Fantasia fiends, will be the third audience in the world to bare witness to this outrageous, no-holds-barred creation. Are you ready for a nasty good time? You’d better be!
