John Waters' lost classic Multiple Maniacs in cinemas in February
8 December 2016
John Waters’ gloriously grotesque, unavailable-for-decades second feature comes to cinemas at long last, replete with all manner of depravity, from robbery to murder to one of cinema’s most memorably blasphemous moments. 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 proclivities 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.
Starring Waters’ beloved regular cast, the Dreamlanders (including David Lochary, Mary Vivian Pearce, Mink Stole, Edith Massey, and Cookie Mueller), Multiple Maniacs is an anarchist masterwork from an artist who has doggedly tested the limits of taste for decades.
Multiple Maniacs will be released in UK cinemas on 17 February 2017 by Park Circus. The screenings will feature a new restoration from Janus Films – this restoration will present the Pope of Trash’s full, uncut version for the first time ever on UK screens.
A Blu-ray release will follow on 20 March 2017 from The Criterion Collection. Full details of that release will follow when we have them.
