The Greasy Strangler Walks The Streets
It melted brains at this year's Chattanooga Film Festival and the good folks at Cine-Rama couldn't resist letting The Greasy Strangler stalk the streets of Chattanooga once more.
The Los Angeles-set tale follows Ronnie, a man who runs a Disco Walking tour along with his browbeaten son, Brayden.
When a sexy, alluring woman comes to take the tour, it begins a competition between father and son for her attentions. It also signals the appearance of an oily, slimy inhuman maniac who stalks the streets at night and strangles the innocent, soon dubbed “The Greasy Strangler”.
In addition, starting Friday and running through next Thursday, Cine-Rama presents Author: The JT Leroy Story, one of the most fascinating and incredible documentaries of 2016.
In 2006, The New York Times sent shockwaves through the literary world when it unmasked "it boy" wunderkind JT LeRoy, whose tough prose about a sordid childhood had captivated icons and luminaries internationally.
It turned out LeRoy didn't actually exist. He was the creative expression of 40-year-old San Francisco former phone-sex operator turned housewife, Laura Albert.
The film takes us down the infinitely fascinating rabbit hole of how Laura Albert—like a Cyrano de Bergerac on steroids—breathed not only words, but life, into her avatar for a decade.
