Listen to the Stinker Madness Episode
Watch the Trailer!
Jim Wynorski makes his Stinker Madness debut with 1991's tale of a spooky phone hotline that gives you the confidence to mow on Bridgette Neilsen's box and gain super-powers so that you can stock a lady with a tall butt.
We're pretty confused on what this movie is about. Our best theory is that the dean of a community college has an obsession with his ex-office assistant. He's nuts and thinks that a 1-900 horoscope number will give him the powers to stalk her properly. So he somehow meets up with the proprietor of a spooky stuff supply store who if you give her cunnilingus you will be given the powers of Doctor Strange. Meanwhile, a guy who only has leather motorcycle gear to wear and who does not shower ever, thinks that the 1-900 number is somehow involved but they are just a red herring and are just a "phone company" with a really lame business model and a fairly bored CEO.
So none of the story makes any sense, which is no problem for us. We love how Jim doesn't bother with any of that and just crams silly stuff in to mask the lack of a plot. There's several sequences in this film that are a laugh riot, particularly the scene where Motorcycle Greg fights possessed assault rifles and flying frozen pizzas, a car chase sequence with a ninja driver, and possibly the best exploding dummy ever caught on film. Hilarious!
The acting is atrocious, the effects are great, the plot is dumb, and the pacing is fantastic. Jim, you're the best at this and we can't wait to see more of your films in our episodes. Thank you, sir!
