Sins of the Fleshapoids (1964)
What I did on my spring vacation... Jasper, Alberta on a Saturday morning, with the majestic mountains in view out the hotel window, yet I stayed inside to watch this underground movie by Mike Kuchar on my portable DVD player. Now is that dedication or what? This whacked-out home movie features a bunch of people who look like they just got kicked off Jack Smith's rooftop in a supposedly futuristic society, where the slaves revolt against the Orwellian rulers. I say supposedly futuristic, because the whole thing looks like it was shot in a basement. There's even comic strip balloons scratched on the film emulsion. A minor work of demented genius.
