->''"So, this idiot made a movie about people in society rightly rejected [[StylisticSuck on a really old VHS camera]]...and he sold it, [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible and people think he's some kind of visionary!]]"''
-->-- '''[[WebVideo/BrowsHeldHigh Kyle "Oancitizen" Kallgren]]'''

An independent film, directed by Harmony Korine, tells the story of four people, wearing elderly people latex masks. These people screw around the neighborhood and does exactly what you think.

Plot? Characterization? ''None'' whatsoever. Don't expect anything great from it.

Scored rotten at 56 percent at RottenTomatoes but overall very, very disgusting for all viewers who came out of the theatre traumatized by needless vandalism/destruction, casual murder, abuse (baby dolls, [[ForeShadowing but]]...), and [[spoiler:kidnapping]].

----
!!This show provides examples of:
* AudienceAlienatingPremise: Invoked - according to [[WordOfGod Korrine himself]], the title dropped the pretenses of other avant-garde films in order to make it clear for those prone to walking out of film showings early.
* AlienLunch: Pancakes dribbled with dishwashing soap...
* CloudCuckooLander: All the humpers and the people they meet, yes including the little boy at the beginning.
* CreatorCameo: Harmony Korrine is the man in the confederate shirt holding the camera.
* CrowdChant: "Make it! Make it! Don't fake it!"
* DreadfulMusician: The companions who played instruments can't play. Seriously.
* DoingItForTheArt: As an "ode" to vandalism, Korrine tried to pass it off as a masterpiece he wanted it to be. If you can believe it to be that...
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: Just as ''Film/SnakesOnAPlane'' was about serpents on an aircraft, ''Trash Humpers'' is about, well...
* FanService: The topless women...
** FanDisservice: The incredibly disgusting scene where the humpers smack the asses of the prostitutes.
* FantasticRacism: The growls from the cameramen is reoccurring, but it doesn't excuse him from growling at a black guy.
* HollywoodToneDeaf: While the woman humper isn't exactly a bad singer, she's not a good one either.
* KilledOffForReal: There is a dead body in a ditch and [[spoiler:this also happens to the admirer of the humpers who was reading them a poem earlier]].
* ManChild: All the humpers
* PrecisionFStrike: ''Many''
* SliceOfLife: Laughably (after the shock value wears off), the viewers are taken to see the life of the humpers, ending with [[spoiler:with a kidnapping of a baby that will no less become a humper]].
* SharpDressedMan: well... boy, but it still counts.
* ShirtlessScene: Some shots were from the men the humpers meet (the one playing a trumpet, the guy that sings the rather disturbing song about...private areas...)
* StylisticSuck: The film is very obviously shot on a VHS format, as evident by the interference and brief moment of '''AUTO TRACKING'''.
* TheHyena: All of the characters who laughed in the so-called film
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: There's only one female humper out of the four.
* WholesomeCrossdresser: The admirer of the humpers, wearing a Meido outfit.
* WordofGod: Korrine actually considers the movie to be an "ode" to vandalism and finds "beauty" in it. Also, he wants to have sex with garbage when he was a kid. That is no joke. He said it in a panel!
* WorldOfCardboardSpeech: Reoccurring
* WouldHurtAChild: Baby dolls, yet the dolls are horribly abused in the worst ways possible: asphyxiation (shoved and forcibly shake them), letting the dolls be rolled behind a bicycle, hammered to death, [[spoiler:and kidnapping!]].
