Divine Waters

Multiple Maniacs

Starring Divine, David Lochary, Mary Vivian Pearce, Mink Stole, Edith Massey

Multiple Maniacs includes one of my favorite Waters' scenes. Divine, the leader of a renegade band of freaks, is visited by the Infant of Prague after being raped. She is led to a church where Mink Stole gives her a rosary-job - bringing her to orgasm right in the church pew!

There's also the Cavalcade of Perversions, the infamous and inexplicable rape of Divine by Lobstora, and a re-enactment of the stations of the cross including a pig-out on Wonder bread and canned tuna.
Thank you, Jesus! Thank you!

"I made this film, which glorified violence, at the peak of the hippie love generation. But hippies liked it. Part of its success was to offend my target audience in a humorous way. Of course, now that sounds much more calculated than I was." - John Waters
