Cult Movie Essentials: They Eat Scum (1979)

The directorial debut of Nick Zedd features low budget 8mm footage where we meet Susie Putrid (Donna Death), a junkie punk singer who encourages the crowd at CBGB to “Kill! Kill! Kill your entire family! Then we see some cannibal stuff, rats, castration, Susie’s brother “meets” a poodle and a whole lot more.

At one point Susie dies but luckily she has a twin sister who escapes from a mental hospital and kills everyone in Manhatten before being killed herself by a mutant lobster man. What’s not to like?
