You wouldn’t expect a typical run of the mill stand on stage playing instruments spot from the defiantly unconventional honky-tonk vaudevillians and that’s not what you’re gonna get, not by a long shot. Instead they offer a fully realized comedic horror film complete with monsters run amuck, young lovers and graphic scenes of flesh eating. In place of self conscious musicians, you get the comedic talents of Fred Armisen from Saturday Night Live, Martin Starr from Superbad the dirty man beard contest guy in Knocked Up and Adventureland, and Charlyne Yi from Knocked Up and this summer’s Paper Heart as well as a rising underground comedian and musician. There are also cameos from Anti label head Brett Gurewitz and a famed ice cream man. It’s a testament to the inspiring power of Man Man’s infectious cabaret sound that such talents would gladly converge for a frenetic two night shoot on the darkened streets of Los Angeles to create this weird and entertaining film.
