The first and last film to be shot entirely in sign language, DEAFULA is probably one of the most earth-shattering works of all time. Other IMDB users waste their breath on insults, but I dare you to find a better example of: *a toddler tearing the throat out of a puppy. *a policeman flapping his arms like a bird *hippies stabbing priests *hunchbacks with tin cans for hands *a tiny troll-like policeman that rightfully makes a mockery of all the people of England. …If you can’t enjoy this movie, you are not a human being.
From IMDB.com user comments for Deafula.
Just as Twilight is about high school student who refuses to give into to his vampire nature, Deafula was about a theology student unaware of his own bloodsucking DNA. Told only that he has a strange blood condition which requires monthly transfusions administered by his father, all hell breaks loose when his father falls ill, and can no longer give the transfusions.
I have never seen Deafula. Shot in Oregon, using Portland and Eastern Oregon locations, it is lost film.
Deafula was written and directed by Peter Wechsberg, who also starred. I hereby claim it as an Oregon film.
