For many people, America gets all the best tours, home video releases, theatrical runs, and more. What some of them don’t realize is that we can easily get just as jealous of their exclusives as they do ours! Take for example the upcoming “Greasy Down Under” 2-disc deluxe edition of The Greasy Strangler (review #1, review #2, which is being released through JB Hi-Fi. Packed to the brim with interviews, trailers, behind-the-scenes photos, and a whole lot more, this edition is sure to make any Aussie with a strong stomach very happy!
Jim Hosking directs The Greasy Strangler, which stars Michael St. Michaels, Sky Elobar, Elizabeth De Razzo, Gil Gex, Jesse Keen, and Joe David Walters.
This Los Angeles-set tale follows Big Ronnie, a man who runs a disco walking tour along with his browbeaten son, Brayden. When a sexy, alluring woman named Janet comes to take the tour, it begins a competition between father and son for her attentions. It also brings about the appearance of an oily, slimy, inhuman maniac who stalks the streets at night and strangles the innocent—soon dubbed “The Greasy Strangler.”
