Mardi Gras Massacre
With only five films, New Orleans-based writer/producer/director Jack Weis became one of the most enigmatic figures in ‘70s exploitation. And for his final trashterpiece, Weis delivered a filth-fueled, disco-drenched and gore-soaked epic of butchered hookers, hard-boiled homicide cops and a prissy psycho with an Aztec sacrifice fetish that remains a once-in-a-lifetime sleaze experience. Curt Dawson (BLOOD BATH), Ronald Tanet (CRYPT OF DARK SECRETS) and February ’75 Playboy Playmate Laura Misch star in this “shocking-yet-hysterical fever dream of regional filmmaking” (Bleeding Skull) with a soundtrack by Dennis Coffey & Mike Theodore (BLACK BELT JONES) and still banned in the UK as one of the original DPP 39 Video Nasties, now featuring a 2K master compiled from the best surviving post-Katrina elements and a revealing new interview with Weis himself.
