CHILD POWER!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

i loved this book when i was a kid, it's kind of fucked up, pretty dark. it's about a child prison run by a giant scary wrestler with fangs. really amazing illustrations by fritz wegner. i'm sure any kid in canada in the late 70's and early 80's who saw the movie version of this was as fucking terrified by it as i was. it still kind of creeps me out!









that shit is fucked up, right?
scary for kids (and me)!
gotta love that child power theme song, though...

in the vein of creepy Canadian kids' movies, The Peanut Butter Solution was awesome when I was a kid. 15 years later I remembered it and thought that surely the way I remembered it couldn't have been right--it just sounded like a fucked up acid trip. I found a VHS copy and discovered that I WAS right--it really was one of the weirdest movies ever made!
