It's not a film parody. It's a parody of a reading of film... the dominant, feminist psychoanalytical reading of horror films, steeped in good old fashioned Freudian castration anxiety. It's the Sarlacc pit from whence issues the laugh of Cixous. Zero point, where the pleasure principle meets the death drive.

I learned about this film from a former student, Mark Borison, who recognized the discussion we were having in my Horror Film course about vagina dentatae.
