Filmed in Harmony Korine’s neighbourhood in Nashville, Trash Humpers portrays three sinister old characters and shows us how they spend their time. The title “Trash Humpers” makes reference to one of Korine’s distant childhood memories, in which characters such as these prowled near his home. The horror and the violence distilled within the film are accented by Korine’s choice in film: the messy quality of VHS, with visible editing cuts gives us the uncanny sensation of watching a psychopath’s home movies. Continuing in the line of Freaks by Tod Browning and Idiots by Von Trier, Korine goes one step further in portraying the crudeness of the most insane side of America, in which the limits of bad taste verge on diseased beauty.
