Scarlet Fry's Junkfood Horrorfest (2007, Brian Crow, Scarlet Fry)
Scarlet Fry - a guy who piddles around in the mega-low-budget horror scene - plays a backwoods zombie in the hacky wrap-around story, unamusingly introducing each bastardly "story". The first story, "Bloodthirsty Butcher", is simply about a morbidly obese man who is out of food so he lures a girl from a laundromat to eat her. Other stories are basically the same, in terms of brainlessness. Another story shows a man committing suicide in manner suspiciously similar to the beginning of Buttgereit's "Der Todesking". There's one about a satanist who kills his girlfriend/wife after she catches him in another ritual. My favorite segment, by far, has a bunch of over-aged skater punks who are offered drug money by an effeminate male prostitute in a parking garage. To be honest, I laughed my balls off at this scene.
Overall, "Junkfood Horrorfest" is just what the title suggests. Junky, micro-budget film making that anyone with a halfway decent (and ultimately immature) sense of humor and a six-beer buzz will get a kick out of simply based on how half-assed and LAZY the piece of shit is!
