The second full-length film by trash cinema guru John Waters, 1970’s Multiple Maniacs stars the late, great Divine as the proprietor of a freak show who grows weary of her day job and, like many of us, decides to go on a madness-fueled spree of deviant terror! Shot in arthouse cinema black-and-white, and deranged even for Waters’ bizarre cinematic catalog, Multiple Maniac remains a stone classic of DIY, dark comedy filmmaking. Waters called up his go-to cast members, early film regulars like Mary Vivian Pearce, Mink Stole and Edith Massey.
