Night of the Living Pork

Someone got to my site today by searching for "dom deluise+billy zane+night of the living pork". While that would be a great title for a movie, I've never heard of one by that name, and a quick search of IMDB seems to confirm that it never existed, though it does have some great suggestions, such as:

Night of the Living Bread

Night of the Day of the Dawn of the Son of the Bride of the Return of the Terror (1991)
aka "Night of the Day of the Dawn of the Son of the Bride of the Return of the Revenge of the Terror of the Attack of the Evil, Mutant, Alien, Flesh Eating, Hellbound, Zombified Living Dead Part 2: In Shocking 2-D"

Night of the Living Duck, The

Night of the Vibrator

I think you may be a little confused, are you sure you didn't mean The Silence of the Hams? That movie starred Dom Deluise and Billy Zane, and was, in my opinion, one of the greatest movies ever. I wrote all about it around the beginning of this blog, let me find the post...

Here it is.

Or also, here is just the part of the post pertaining to the movie:

In other movie news my order from Amazon.com came in a couple of days ago. "Silence of the Hams." That's one of my favorite movies, but it's hard to find around here. I've never seen a copy of it for sale. I got a used copy of it off Amazon.com for about $13 with shipping and handling.

If you've never seen this movie, you should. Especially if you're a fan of Airplane and the Leslie Neilsen movies and things like that. This movie, written, directed, and also acted in by Ezzio Greggio, is a very strange, wacky parody. It's more of a parody of "Psycho" than "Silence of the Lambs." It features Dom DeLuise as Dr. Animal the Cannibal Pizza, and Billy Zane as FBI agent Jo Dee Fostar. Jo Dee Fostar is trying to get Dr. Animal to tell him where to find the psycho killer, who he thinks killed his girlfriend, who, like in Psycho, stole money from her boss and ended up at a Motel and was killed in the shower.

It's hard to pick a favorite scene, but I think it would be the scene where Jo is talking to Dr. Animal and Dr. Animal says "Tell me Clair-ass, what is your most disturbing, decadent, depraved, defoliated, decotaged, deformed, dried, dream?" And Jo sobs and says, "Ham." And Dr. Animal says, "Was the ham...silent?" And Jo starts crying, and Animal continues, "Ham can be very quiet. Very quiet. Unless it's falling down the stairs. Then it goes boom boom boom-ti-boom bum bam. Celery can be very loud. Apples, louder. Unless you have apple sauce...which goes very well with ham." And Jo sobs, "Stop! Please, no more questions!"
