Demented, juvenile and utterly pretentious nonsense that comes across like a senile version of Jackass crossed with white trash performance art, yet it's also strangely enjoyable and has future cult hit written all over it.

a painful and deadly dull slog that tries to approximate the outrages of early underground cinema without bringing anything new to the table.

This interminable piece of crap copped a big prize at the 2009 Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival.

The crass, fuzzy beauty of VHS' defiantly crisp-free recording technology gives haunting visual power to both the empty-parking-lot dreariness of day and the harsh, lamplit hum of night.

The spirit of celluloid is dragging 3D CGI to the toilet and giving it a swirly.

For the brave souls who make it to the end, there should at least be no question of the movie's sincerity.

If this is what passes for contemporary art terrorism, we'll opt instead for something truly subversive -- like genuine art.

It's ultimately less a celebration of impulse behavior than a celebration of the parodic impulse to record.

It's all very confusing and I have to admit, I'm not sure I even liked "Trash Humpers." But, I respect it and I respect Korine as an artist.

Never have so many curbside trash containers been violated in the name of art, as well as trees, a mailbox, and a forlorn electric pole.

Korine is just too old for this s**t

Never has the bizarre beauty of degraded low-grade video been exploited to this extent.
