When an alluring woman arrives, it signals a competition between father and son for her attentions – but also the appearance of a maniac dubbed ‘The Greasy Strangler’. Full of profane, scatological and sexual humour, this uncategorisable comedy is also joyously playful and truly weird.

A. for this riotously funny investigation into the Church of Scientology.
