Description: Sick and bizarre B&W German art porn krautensplatter weirdness stars Jess Franco’s daughter Jessica as a disturbed punkette who has gory Elizabeth Bathory inspired fantasies, sucks and eats her own menstrual blood! Described as a "pornographic version of Polanski’s Disgust and Romero’s Martin" and "cruel fairy tales from the unconscious" this one proves that the acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree!
Review: Mondo is an Italian word for "world”. A mondo film is an exploitation documentary film, sometimes resembling a pseudo-documentary and usually depicting sensational topics, scenes or situations.
Welcome to Mondo Weirdo: A Trip to Paranoia Paradise (1990). The sight of menstruation
blood is totally a disgusting thing to look at. Yet, upon seeing the whole movie, is one of the
greatest of all times! This is pure madness, a sick perverted hallucinating nightmare! It had
a nice soundtrack but too bad, you can’t find it anywhere. This movie has horror, grotesque,
surrealism, expressionism, sick hardcore sex (straight, homos and lesbos), grand-guignol and
insanity all mix into ONE mean show. All put together with such a brilliant sick taste but so
powerful, inventive, fresh, bursting yet subtle. I watched it the first time last month and it
went straight to my subconcousness, it kind of possessed me for hours, possibly months, and
its images kept on floating in my mind, along with all that hallucinating music! I imagine it
countless times, and it never gets boring, it's like listening to Led Zep or Black Sabbath and
the more you know it, the more you enjoy it when you put it on!!! Only a few films can have
this quality, let me tell you.
