Janne the Director’s Favorite Rare Movies Top 100 List #27: Society (1989)

April 23, 2011

Janne the Director with a Space Mahoney t-shirt from the movie No Law 400027. Society [DVD] (1989)

Back in 1989 horror masterminds Stuart Gordon (Re-Animator), Ed Naha (Dolls) and Brian Yuzna (Bride of Re-Animator) put their severely damaged heads together and wrote… Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.

That same year Brian Yuzna made… this.

Didn’t we all feel like we didn’t quite belong as teenagers? That there was something wrong with everybody else?

This is the ultimate teen flick where young Bill (Billy Warlock from… uhm… Baywatch and… Baywatch Nights and… General Hospital. Days of Our Lives?! Oh, The Young and the Restless too…) fights jocks, incest and talking assholes.

Just so we understand each other – I really mean literally… talking assholes. So yeah, the movie is about class differences.

It all builds up to an orgy and no; it’s not an Eyes Wide Shut kinda orgy – it’s more like… if young David Cronenberg’s and young Peter Jackson’s wet dreams would have a dream child and that dream child went to an orgy and was the most normal human in the meat pile. And covered in melted cheese.
