“The best film directed by Brian Yuzna (producer of Re-Animator) is this strange horror/sci-fi satire on the yuppie way of life.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBeverly Hills teen begins to suspect that thereu0026#39;s something very wrong with his snobbish family, is he imagining it or are they… inhuman?! u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSociety is one original and shocking black comedy. Thereu0026#39;s never a dull moment in the engulfing plot, which starts out as a paranoia mystery then only gets increasingly weird from there on out. It all builds to a warped finale that you wonu0026#39;t forget! Itu0026#39;s one of those surreal and gruesome terrors that makes you wonder if you should be laughing or screaming at what youu0026#39;re seeing. The makeup work of Screaming Mad George (great name) is very effectively disturbing. The direction of Yuzna is well-done and the addition of the Eton Boat Song as the films theme is a clever touch.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe cast is spot on in their performances, the best being young star Billy Warlock as our perplexed and horrified hero.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSociety is one of those unique genre oddities that must be seen to be fully realized. Itu0026#39;s one very wild trip thatu0026#39;s well deserving of a cult status.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e*** out of ****”
