GWAR are renowned for their over the top, gross-out stage performances, as evidenced by such home videos as Live: Antarctica. But on the 1992 video/DVD, Phallus in Wonderland, GWAR try their hand at a conceptual mini-movie, which contains plenty of vulgar visuals to please longtime fans. The story line (and the term is used extremely loosely) is quite hard to decipher and borders on silly, but supposedly has to do with a group attempting to "censor" GWAR. No live performances are included, but several promo clips are featured -- "Crack in the Egg," "Have You Seen Me?," "The Morality Squad," etc. With a little more effort invested into developing the story line, Phallus in Wonderland could've been a whole lot better.
