A couple of months ago, Peter established Journey into Obscurity, a column intended to highlight some films that may fall under the radar of even the most devoted Cult Film fans. Since that first article, the column has remained dormant. That is until today, when Vinny will get to throw in his low-budget one cent into the mix.
Back in the early nineties, Trey Parker and Matt Stone were trying to release their first feature film. Now keep in mind, this was way before the days of South Park, so the pair were still pretty much unknown in the industry. Eventually, they ended up at Troma, where Lloyd Kaufman was willing to pick the film up for distribution.
Generally regarded as the greatest film ever made, Steve Oedenkerk’s (Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls) Kung Pow! Enter the Fist was a massive success and has been enjoyed by countless millions since its release in 2002.
