The Garbage Pail Kids Movie (1987)

Directed by Rod Amateau (The Seniors)

It doesn't get any grosser than this.

"Too repulsive for children of any age." - The New York Times

"The fever dream that is The Garbage Pail Kids Movie was spawned, out of dumpster slime or maybe apathy." - Tim League, Warped and Faded: Weird Wednesday and the Birth of The American Genre Film Archive

"Vile, smelly, rude, ugly." - Variety

Your favorite grime bandits come to life with all the farts, snot and vomit you can take in this hilarious cult classic.  Based on the wildly popular and hilariously gross retro icons, The Garbage Pail Kids Movie stars Anthony Newley (Doctor Dolittle) and Katie Barberi (Not Quite Human II), as well as MacKenzie Astin (The Facts of Life) as a perfectly nice teenager who discovers the Kids... to his disgust!  

When Dodger (Astin) accidentally releases the Kids from their magical trash can prison, all smell breaks loose.  Despite their personal habits - and attitude problems - Dodger soon becomes fond of the Kids.  But when Messy Tessie, Foul Phil, Valerie Vomit and the whole misfit crew join his fight against thuggish bullies, their efforts just might land them behind bars at the State Home for the Ugly!
