Description

Terminal USA 

Dir. Jon Moritsugu, 1993, USA

Runtime: 60 min.

Language: English

Holly (Jenny Woo), Marvin (writer/director Jon Moritsugu), and Katzumi (Moritsugu again) are average Asian-American teenage siblings with not-so-average predilections for backstabbing, kinky sex, and drug-fueled freakouts. Neglected by their parents, the kids turn to outside “help” (including the scene-stealing Amy Davis, Moritsugu’s wife and longtime collaborator) in order to escape their bored existence. Naturally, this leads to gore killings, sex tapes, and the most hilarious phone conversations ever captured on 16mm film. A candy-colored hellscape that feels like an episode of STRANGERS WITH CANDY that was filmed by Dario Argento during a three-day acid bender, Jon Moritsugu's TERMINAL USA is a crucial piece of 1990s alternative cinema—smart, shocking, and one of the most deranged films to ever be funded by American taxpayers. This is the film HEATHERS wished it could be.

 

Mod Fuck Explosion

Dir. Jon Moritsugu, 1994, USA

Runtime: 67 min.

Language: English

A fucked-up teen girl (Amy Davis) looks for love and a leather jacket to call her own on the night of the big rumble between the mods and a gang of Japanese bikers in this ultra-90s rager from TERMINAL USA and MY DEGENERATION filmmaker Jon Moritsugu. Featuring a killer soundtrack by Unrest and Karyo Tengoku, cameos from queer icons Mx. Justin Vivian Bond and Leigh Crow, and a climax involving 800 lbs. of rotting beef, MOD FUCK EXPLOSION is a potent blast of teenage hate and rebellion.
