IT IS A MATTER OF GOOD BREEDING. REALLY.
After producing Stuart GordonÕs hit Re-Animator, Brian Yuzna (Bride of Re-Animator, Return of the Living Dead III) turned his hand to directing with 1989Õs Society, and gave birth to one of the ickiest, most original body horror shockers of all time.
Teenager Bill Whitney (Billy Warlock) has always felt like the odd one out in his wealthy, upper-class Beverly Hills family. For some reason, he just doesnÕt seem to fit in. But his sense of alienation takes a sinister turn when he hears an audio recording of his sisterÕs coming-out party, which seems to implicate his family and others in a bizarre, ritualistic orgy. And then there are the strange things heÕs been seeing Ð glimpses of people with their bodies contorted impossibly out of shapeÉ Is Bill going mad or is there something seriously amiss in his neighborhood?
Packing stomach-churning grue and thought-provoking social commentary in equal measure, Society is a biting horror satire which culminates in one of the most gag-inducing ÒclimaxesÓÕ in all
of horror history.
