Directed by Bill Plympton • 2004 • United States
Starring Eric Gilliland, Dermot Mulroney, Sarah Silverman
Bill Plympton spoofs the teen movies of a bygone era in this gothic, 1950s-set high school comedy about a love triangle that goes terribly wrong as two murdered students return to their prom to get revenge. Filtering elements of GREASE, CARRIE, and early rock ’n’ roll heartbreak ballads through his singularly bizarro sensibility, Plympton crafts a darkly demented satire that features the voice talents of Sarah Silverman, Dermot Mulroney, Michael Showalter, Matt Groening, Ed Begley Jr., Beverly D’Angelo, David and Keith Carradine, and more.
