From 1972-76, The Residents, inspired by Federico Fellini, The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari and Betty Boop cartoons, dumped nearly half a decade of creativity into Vileness Fats, a film they expected to become the ultimate underground movie of all time. It was never finished.
Fast forward forty years, and The Residents are inspired again. Not to finish Vileness Fats, but to re-contextualize the original video into a brand new film, Double Trouble. In the new film, the time is 2023. Randy Rose, the group's singer has just died, and his son, Randy Junior, a Catholic priest, has come into possession of the original Vileness Fats footage, and finds that his life holds some strange parallels to that long-abandoned project.Watch the trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtWS_Jtb68k
