The Bighead

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I read this “this project has been funded” on kickstarter, referring to Edward Lee’s seminal splatterfest, The Bighead. What sicko’s would actually want to see that perverse, degrading, gross, atrocious, blood spattered book ever made into a film…….well me for one. I read the book, threw up, read it again some months later, blogged about it, threw up again and decided I enjoyed the book immensely. If you haven’t read The Bighead (must have a strong stomach) I suggest you do, it is the literary equivalent of A Serbian Film and The Human Centipede combined and on crystal meth. Here’s a link to a short write up I did on the book Wurd: The Bighead. Anyway (excuse my frothing at the mouth) a short film has concluded filming and is set to be premiered in Los Angeles on Saturday March 30, 2013 at 7:00 PM at the Acme Theater in Hollywood. Check out the trailer and all the juicy details below.

The Bighead Film Info

The Bighead PosterBased on Edward Lee’s seminal and wildly controversial 2003 novel, “EDWARD LEE’S THE BIGHEAD” directed by Michael Ling is set in the West Virginian backwoods where vicious monsters, both human and supernatural, go on a terrifying rampage in search of a special young woman. Their path of destruction uncovers long held secrets and puts the fate of the entire world in jeopardy. The short film stars Raquel Cantu as the untamable sexpot Jerrica, Carrie Malabre as the shy Charity, Orson Chaplin as the demented psychopath Tritt “Balls” Connor, and Lance Trezona as Tritt’s dim-witted accomplice Dicky. Also starring are Ashley Totin as the prostitute Rosie, Michael Coons as conflicted priest Father Tom, P.D. Miller as the bartender Frank, and Kelsey Tipton as the Bighead’s first victim Wendy. The frightening Bighead monster itself is played by Cheetah Platt. Award-winning director of photography Fady Hadid shot the film from writer/director Michael Ling’s script. Geoff Skinner and Donald Wygal, Jr. produced.

Like Porno For Pyschos

Like Porno For Pyschos. Wrath James White. 2011.

I found myself in need of another quick fix today so I turned to my current obsession; Like Porno For Psychos. Imagine a cure that would eliminate AIDS, the common cold and make a person feel ten years younger. Perfect. What could be wrong with that? Well what if the cure had side effects that include increased libido and sexual voracity. Even better! After The Cure is a short story centered on the idea of human lust gone awry. Imagine people surrendering to their sexual desires en-masse, disrobing in the streets focused on one thing and one thing only, pleasure. The need becomes so great that normal everyday needs go unnoticed. Eating, drinking and bathing, forget about it – more sex please. I think you can connect the dots here. What a way for civilization to end though! One world spanning depraved orgy. Sign me up. This one isn’t as violent as other entries in the book but the subject matter is definitely interesting. Read it.

Next Up: uhm…..I need to surf the Internet for appx 20 minutes 😉

Like Porno For Pyschos

Like Porno For Pyschos. Wrath James White. 2011.

Splitting my time between watching full length horror films, reading horror novels and……sigh….work, I sometimes get the urge for a quick “hit” of gruesome goodness; something that I can read in the time it takes me to drink a cup of coffee and have a smoke. I decided to put down Richard Laymon‘s, The Midnight Tour (the third book in his teratophiliac BDSM series appropriately named The Beasthouse) in favor of a quick 15-20min blood soaked joy ride. I just happened to have a nasty little tome laying around called-Like Porno For Pyschos.  Catchy title isn’t it? Written by a fellow named Wrath. Wrath James White; that’s a pretty kick ass name if you ask me. You could write a story about this guys life; Philidelphia street tough, kickboxing in the Orient (a-la Bloodsport) and full time splatterpunk virtuoso.

I opened Like Porno For Pyschos and selected a story entirely at random-Feeding Time. I was wholly shocked and disturbed by this tale of sexual fetishism gone wrong; or right depends on how you look at it. A lonely wife with a fetish for Lions (yes I said Lions) spends her free time at the zoo masturbating while she watches the zookeeper feed the big cats raw meat. That’s really about as much as I can describe without giving away too much, it’s a short story after all. Needless to say that any fetish involving lions, the Kings of the Jungle (or the savannah if you want to be accurate) will usually end terribly. And it does, in a twisted depraved and utterly disturbing way. All I can say is wow! Truly truly twisted. I will be devouring (no pun intended) the rest of this fantastically sick collection ASAP! I suggest you do the same. Enjoy.
