This Friday, Trash Film Debauchery will be returning once again with the 70's amputee mobster mindfuck, The Amazing Mr. No Legs!
Ricou Browning, the Olympic swimmer best known as the man inside the suit of The Creature from the Black Lagoon, directed this amazing bit of weirdness which could only have been a product of the cinematically insane '70s. Richard Jaeckel stars as a Florida policeman tracking a gang of heroin dealers led by evil fatcat D'Angelo, who naturally has his hooks into everything, including the corrupt police captain. There are drag queens, barroom brawls, shootouts, and the usual mayhem, but what makes this film particularly noteworthy is its central hitman, Lou. He has no legs and travels in a motorized wheelchair decked out with double-barreled shotguns and throwing stars. Lou is also strong enough that when he isn't blasting people with his killer wheelchair he can swing around on his arms and use his legless torso to bludgeon people into submission. There's also a dwarf. And sexy ladies getting into catfights. A real winner!

R. Kelly's Trapped in the Closet will be following at 10pm
Probably the greatest musical masterpiece of our time. See R. Kelly's vision come to life in a whirlwind of love, deception, passion, drama, comedy, and the rhyming of words with the same word. Watch as R. Kelly proves to the world that even hardcore G's like him can instill a rainbow of emotions in any audience. With twenty-two (Yes i'm showing both DVDs) 3 minute chapters and usually about the same number of plot twists as minutes in each chapter, how can you go wrong? The chapters each have a sense of completion so when the next chapter starts it seems too good to be true. Come to this. It might be the best decision of your life.
