Circus freaks + Nazi killing + superheroes + magical realism + gore = made for me. Greatly enjoyed this.

I'm only half way through this film but it's fantastic! So sad it didn't get theatrical release in the US because I would LOOOOOOOOOVE to see this on the big screen!

I'll be honest: I wanted to see it so badly I bootlegged it the first chance I got. But it was so fantastic, I felt compelled to pay full retail purchase price as soon as it was legally available.

OK so I finally I finished it. Oh man I would like to gush about all of the things. I think my one hang up was the masturbation gags were ick. Did not need that. But other than that any film where character utters "I am the cassandra of the third reich" or has a nazi getting sprayed with tiger piss has my heart forever.
