What did they say about it?  Check out the excerpt below.

From DreadCentral.com:

GWAR and Insane Clown Posse Made Two of the Best Docs of the Year

Insane Clown Posse, GWAR, and the directors of the bands’ new documentaries tell us how they joined forces and why their stories needed to be filmed.

The presence that GWAR and Insane Clown Posse command within the horror scene is undeniable.You don’t have to seeThis Is GWARorThe United States of Insanity, the two new documentaries centered around both bands, to know this. But the movies—each of which had their world premieres at Fantastic Fest this year—certainly serve as a testament to their influence.

This Is GWARexplores the artistry and heart behind the legendary metal band’s shock rock antics.

GWAR’s brand of interactive cosmic horror and over-the-top practical stage effects have been blowing the minds of metal fans and monster kids for nearly four decades. For anyone that’s ever been front-and-center at a GWAR show, the barrage of blood and guts sent hurling towards the crowd will either make you duck and run for cover or jump up and cheer for more. There’s a sick and twisted camaraderie between fans—especially after the concert, when you throw a knowing wink at someone walking by whose skin is also dyed a pinkish red from all the fake bloodshed.

InThe United States of Insanity, we see how that outsider mentality and sense of community may be even stronger among hardcore fans of Insane Clown Posse.

Famously known as the Juggalos, they, too, walk away from Insane Clown Posse concerts drenched to the bone—but that’s from being sprayed by gallons of Faygo, the local soft drink of choice in the band’s native Detroit. Harmless as that may sound—and it is—in recent years, the FBI has flagged Juggalos as an actual gang, on par with crime syndicates like MS-13. Amidst Insane Clown Posse’s ongoing struggle to remove the Juggalos from the U.S. threat list, their fans’ shared bond has only grown stronger.

Once GWAR and Insane Clown Posse’s respective fanbases have seen these films, they might be surprised by how much the Scumdogs of the Universe and the supposed scumbags of America have in common.
