Multiple Maniacs

_Multiple Maniacs_, the gloriously grotesque, unavailable-for-decades second feature from John Waters, has arrived in UK cinemas at long last. Made on a shoestring budget in Baltimore, with Waters taking on nearly every technical task, this gleeful mockery of the peace-and-love ethos of its era features the Cavalcade of Perversion, a traveling show put on by a troupe of misfits whose shocking tendencies are topped only by those of their leader: the glammer-than-glam, larger-than-life Divine, who’s out for blood after discovering her lover’s affair. DIRECTOR: John Waters DETAILS: United States, 1970, 90mins, 18 STARRING: Divine, David Lochary, Mary Vivian Pearce
