Hanger is a glorious slice of sleaze pie. Gross, disgusting, rancid, sleaze pie. It's a Troma inspired sleazefest as not only evidenced by the over the top gore and grue, but also from a couple of brief snippets shown from Class of Nuke 'Em High and the appearance of one Mr. Lloyd Kaufman doing his best tranny impersonation. It's sick, it's demented, it's gloriously outrageous.
Our film starts off with a pregnant lady of the night (played by genre star Debbie Rochon), sharing a moment with one of her most loyal paying customers: a truck driver who has an unrequited love for her. He just doesn't feel right doing the deed in her condition but instead, gives her a stuffed animal for the soon to be delivered baby. However, this doesn't bode well for the hooker, as she owes some major cash moniez to her pimp. He comes a collectin' and finds that she doesn't have the coin. He decides to make a withdrawal from the ATM of Vagina and Uterus, taking a coat hanger, ripping the baby out, and throwing it into a nearby dumpster. Mom of course, dies in the process.
Fast forward a few years and we see our discarded (and now horribly disfigured) baby now all growns up. And he's come under the care of an abusive homeless man. Our truck driver quickly arrives on the scene and rescues the boy. He claims that he is now on a mission of revenge against our mommy killing, vagina violating pimp. But before he gets down to bidness, he drops the boy off at a mongoloid retreat where he becomes friends with an Asian retard who has a penchant for making tea with women's bloodied tampons (yes, you read that right).
Our fearless truck driver sets out to avenge Hanger's (the name given to the boy, get it?) mom's death. But almost immediately, he's captured by the henchman er I mean henchwoman, who ties him up, strips herself down, and rubs his face with her stanky hoo ha juice. Gnarly.
Meanwhile back at the ranch, Hanger and Asian mongoloid get into a bit of trouble after run ins with drug dealers, a fat Jehovah's witness, some hookers (who love to furiously masturbate) and a visitor who likes to slip roofies and get down with some man on man butthole action. The most disturbing scene in the film as the dirtiest ass fucking this side of Deliverance is shown.
Hellbent on revenge truck driver manages to escape and catch up with our pimp just before he deals a fatal hand to our bumbling, sex crazed, roofied, miscreants. Hanger's mommy is avenged, the boys are saved and all is now right in our sick, twisted, demented, fucked up world. YAY!
Hanger rates about a 10 on my Richter Scale of fucked. But holy god is it funny and over the top. I can't wait to check out more from the sick and twisted mind of Ryan Nicholson.
Now excuse me while I go and vomit.
