When you hear a title like Sometimes Aunt Martha Does Dreadful Things, you would be forgiven in thinking this is probably a film that belongs to the psycho-biddy (or hag horror) genre of films that includes such classics as What Ever Happened To Baby Jane and William Castle's insanely underrated Strait-Jacket. What you probably won't expect is a bizarro film that feels like the bastard love child of Andy Milligan and John Waters. Well, boys and girls. I'm here to tell you that's exactly what you get with this completely insane little gem. Vinegar Syndrome truly are the most interesting genre label out there right now. While the majority of their releases are adult films, they also churn out releases of some of the more obscure horror and exploitation titles out there.
