Krackoon Is Just What It Sounds Like — a Killer Raccoon on Crack

This description immediately sold us: “A raccoon mistakenly snacks on crack cocaine. He sets out to exact revenge on the developers and politicians responsible for destroying his home in the Bronx.” That's so many levels of WTF. A raccoon just happens to eat some crack. He's intelligent enough — while on crack — to know who destroyed his home. And his vengeance — is it based on the loss of some wooded paradise? Is this perhaps a tale of environmental comeuppance? No. It's over a place in the Bronx, for cryin' out loud. It's from Krackoon, a film by Jerry Landi that screens Wednesday and includes equal measures of horror and sick humor. It's part of the Another Hole in the Head Film Festival, which continues through Friday at the Roxie.
