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.

What do you get when you cross the twisted mind of Wrath James White and a literary gross out competition? Sloppy Seconds. A vomit inducing, nauseating collection of hard core horror’s vile virtuoso, Mr. White. Every year at the World Horror Convention, the much anticipated Gross-Out Contest is held to determine which author can deliver the most disturbing an grotesque tale of all. Sloppy Seconds is a collection of Wrath James White’s entries into that heinous contest. Uncut in all of their putrid glory, these shorts are among the absolute worst words I’ve ever read! No shit. I can’t even begin to describe the sickening subject matter contained in the book. If you are even mildly interested in reading this, heed my warning, STRONG STOMACH REQUIRED! Sloppy Seconds rates 11/10 on the brutally disgusting scale. Have fun and keep a vomit bag nearby.

Crossed

Crossed. 2008.

Crossed is a comic book written by Garth Ennis and drawn by Jacen Burrows for the first ten issues, and published by Avatar Press. Following volumes Crossed: Family Values, Crossed 3D, and Crossed: Psychopath were written by David Lapham. A new series, Crossed: Badlands is written by Ennis and drawn by Burrows. A web comic, Crossed: Wish You Were Here, has also been produced. (Wiki)

I have read alot of comics in my day, usually along the extreme/strange line. This brings me to the Crossed series; absolute and complete violent madness and brutality here! It is described as an adult entertainment comic not to be confused with pornography at all, though there are alot of sexual scenes. I have read all of the Crossed series numerous times and am still shocked as I turn each blood soaked page. For fans of brutal horror whether in print or on film this is a definite must read. I would recommend starting with Ennis’ original Crossed story line but it doesn’t really matter which series to start with. A free web series of Crossed is available here courtesy of Avatar Press. Check it out now!
