Troma.com:The Troma Team is proud to present the hilarity of Ray Mahoney's BACONHEAD. Ray Mahoney delivers what the (Albequerque Tribune) says is, "Hailed as a cult classic!" BACONHEAD is sketch comedy with reoccurring characters that is 'unpredictable and often surreal" (Rocky Mountain News). "Monty Python meets Wayne's World" (Boulder Weekly). "The cult film BACONHEAD is...anything goes!" (ABC Television). BACONHEAD unsympathetically lampoons popular culture in an all out assault of off the wall humor. "Fans can't get enough Bacon!" (Denver Post).

IMDB: *** This comment may contain spoilers ***

Baconhead is full of original ideas, some more fleshed out than others, but at the very least proves that Ray Mahoney should get more work. It is a collection of shorts, most of them tied together in various ways, and all seeming to take place in the same world. It is a world where a guy named Chauncy finds himself chased out of The Land of the People Named Chris, has songs about a guy that cleans tubs "Quinlin the detailing tubbist", and oh yeah, toast is illegal. A major part of the movie, and one that ties in with other parts, is the Toast Police. They are four cops out to interrogate and kill anyone they have to in order to get to the bottom of all the toast coming into town. It is also a world where you order a pizza, and the topping is pepperoni-sized pictures of your own face (leading to an awesome scene where the guy that ordered the pizza has been killed, and the cop checks the pizza). There are arguments about having a clue, a notion, and a purpose ("I've never even SEEN a purpose much less had one!"). A highlight is the Senator and the Monsignor, who have a slogan duel and conversation using their own lingo that could catch on as much as the phrases from Wayne's World if enough people saw it. My friends and I reference this movie a lot. There are a few unrelated skits, such as the musical number "Three Guys in Band Hats", and a couple made up commercials. A very unique movie, one where a guy can be picking pieces off the ground and say he is collecting his thoughts, while another comments not to worry about one of them because its just a crazy notion. Low budget for sure, but very original and funny to the right audience. While I'm a huge Troma fan, and this is a Troma release, it doesn't fit in with the typical idea of what a Troma movie is. They just happen to be the American distributor. It is (or was) available on VHS, and on a Troma DVD called "Tube Top TV" that also includes a movie called "Viewer Discretion Advised". Not one for people that need Hollywood-level production values, but if you like original humor that you won't find anywhere else, check this one out. Also, it is in black and white, obviously a creative choice, which seems to fit it well. I hope I've convinced a few people to check this one out at least.
