Still image from the film The Taint

Long one of the Dark Carnival Film Festival’s favorite features, The Taint is a throwback to classic Troma films—with all the goopy horror and absurd humor that implies. Tainted water begins turning men into misogynistic, head-smashing psychopaths, and our two young heroes must brave the bizarre world that results in order to find a cure. Contains explicit content, including sexual violence, language, and nudity. (HD Presentation)
