This film is the first puppet-creature film made for an adult audience. On its release Peter Jackson warned, "It's a nasty little piece of work, this one, and people should know that". Suffice to say, this is the lowdown and dirty of the puppet world. "The Feebles" are a travelling variety troupe, the members and managers of which deal and do drugs, make porno movies and waste those who irritate them. A big "cult" hit, but borderline X rated.
