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.

After a couple of bad starts on Netflix yesterday (Death of a Ghost Hunter, Exorcismus) my bro and I commited to Vile. The cover looked pretty sick, which ofcourse peaked our interest but the 2.7ish rating was a bit worrisome. With no other choices we dove in. The premise of the film was actually a refreshing take on the survival/torture horror genre, pretty inventive I must say. The film itself was a little rough around the edges with some shaky acting and minor errors scattered throughout but for an obviously lower budget entry Vile was well executed. We found ourselves pretty engaged in the flick and even flinching at a few of the gruesome torture scenes; can anyone say ‘Cheese Grater’. Vile isn’t going to be up for an Oscar anytime soon but if your into low budget horror and want something a bit different check it out! Vile @ IMDB

Next Up: throwing out my cheese grater…….
