You're "Criminally Insane" and you need to stop eating so damn much.

"Criminally Insane" (also known as "Crazy Fat Ethel") is about a woman named "Ethel" that has just gotten out of a mental hospital and is living with her grandmother, sounds okay eh? Well no, Ethel is such a fattie! She constantly eats a lot of food and her grandmother wants her to stop so she locks up the food in a cabinet, Ethel of course gets pissed so she stabs her poor ol' grandmother to death! So later on she realizes there isn't anymore food in the house so she has a grocery store deliver her food, unfortunately Ethel doesn't have enough money to pay for it so she kills the delivery boy, then her prostitute sister comes over to stay and Ethel lets her even though she has dead bodies rotting in the house, then her sister's boyfriend comes to stay, they get high, she goes out to work, he's just being weird and what is Ethel doing? Eating of course! And trying to get rid of the bodies since everyone is smelling something funny in the house.

She realizes she can't have her sister and her boyfriend living there anymore so she kills them both and hides the body in the grandmother's room (where the other dead ones are).
After the last 2 murders, the movie revolves around Ethel trying to get rid of the bodies, she tries a few things but they don't work out til finally she does something very disgusting and horrifying, I won't say what it is but it was something that she should of done a looong time ago since she's a fatass. The movie was weird but funny, I was pretty much entertained through out the whole time so I'm glad it wasn't boring at all. If you want to see a movie about a fat woman killing people, then check this movie out but don't watch the sequels because apparently they're terrible and not worth it. 7/10.

I rented this one and laughed my ass off at it. There was actually a couple moments of grim nastiness, imo, in spite of the 'do it yourself' approach to the effects. The ending was cool, but you knew it couldn't go any other way. It was just a matter of time before...

The first sequel, CRAZY FAT ETHEL 2 is the pits. It was shot on video and Priscilla Alden returned. It was horrible and even more poverty row than the first movie. I never did get to see the similar DEATH NURSE also with Alden.

I loved, loved, loved this movie. It falls into the so-awful-it's friggen-great category. I was messin' around with a new snap camcorder I got while watching this and happened to film my reaction to one of the scenes...where "crazy fat Ethel" stabs her grandmother's corpse in the hand to get the key to the food. Hilarious!
