You realize you’re in for one thing bizarre when the sight of Tim Heidecker, lined in boils, is the least-upsetting visible a brand new trailer has to supply. Such is the case for Kuso, the primary movie from Steven Ellison, a.okay.a. rapper Flying Lotus. And whereas the trailer’s promo copy says it takes place in L.A., within the aftermath of a large earthquake, in precise observe, it appears to be streaming straight out of somebody’s Technicolor fever dream.
Actually, we’ve got no fucking clue what’s occurring right here; the trailer blends live-action, animation, and physique horror into some form of David Cronenberg-meets-Who Framed Roger Rabbit hybrid. Is George Clinton’s crazy-sounding physician a great man? Does that lady’s vagina have enamel? Can this film congeal into one thing greater than 90 minutes of out-there imagery and screaming? Hopefully, we’ll have a greater concept when Kuso debuts on horror-streaming service Shudder on July 21.
