Desperate Living

Desperate Living

A film by John Waters
Starring Liz Renay, Mink Stole, Susan Lowe

After insane housewife Peggy Gravel (Mink Stole) murders her husband in a fit of rage, she and her obese maid Grizelda (Jean Hill) seek refuge in the mythical town of Mortville. Ruled by the evil Queen Carlotta (Edith Massey) and her daughter Princess Coo-Coo, the town is full of criminals and sexual deviants who’ve fled the straight world. John Waters’ most visionary film plays like perverted lovechild of The Wizard of Oz and Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!
