Bruce and Pepper Wayne Gacy's Home Movies also known as Home Movies is a short experimental film by Bruce LaBruce [1] and Candy Parker.[2]

Made in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in 1988, it is filmed in colour and black and white on Super 8mm film and is 12 minutes long.

The conceptual premise of the film is that the audience is watching the home movies of Bruce Wayne Gacy and Pepper Wayne Gacy, the children of the notorious serial killer John Wayne Gacy. The film features various disturbing vignettes filmed in a dysfunctional home; a woman arrives (G. B. Jones) and begins beating up two men, a man (Bruce LaBruce) goes through a range of emotions watching a man (Dave Dictor) attempt to perform drunken oral sex on a woman on a bathroom floor while an oblivious small dog runs about, and a man eats in a deranged manner from a dog food bowl on the floor and howls.

The film stars Bruce LaBruce, G.B. Jones, Dave Dictor, Joe The Ho, David Gravelle.

Bruce and Pepper Wayne Gacy's Home Movies was first shown in 1990 and 1991 by LaBruce and Jones as part of the J.D.s movie screenings in London in the UK, Montreal and Toronto in Canada, and in San Francisco and at Hallwalls in Buffalo in the U.S.[3] It is still being regularly screened at museums and film festivals worldwide.[4] [5]
