The Book They Said Could Never be Filmed…
…Is now the movie you won’t believe
anyone dared to make…
It’s been about a year since I reviewed the book The Bighead by Edward Lee – (see review HERE). I had heard rumors at the time about there being a movie adaptation in the works, but anyone who’s read the book knows that a movie of this book would be very hard to make/release!
…the more I read, the more convinced I became – convinced that the film cannot be done! At least, not in regards to the book!
This graphic sex, rape, bodily fluid, and scat filled book was enough to literally make me nauseous – almost losing the battle once or twice!
If you haven’t read the book, then the movie might turn out to be one of the best horror / torture porn movies since the original HOSTEL. But, movie goers who did read the book first – they’ll be expecting #MurderPorn/#TorturePorn, and nothing short of Bighead’s descriptive culinary experiences will abide. It’s going to be a rough road for director Michael Lee. As for the fans – it’s hard to say… ~ Shadow Girl 5/18/2014
As luck would have it… someone shared my post with Michael Lee, and he was awesome enough to chat with me about it. (comments, updates, and links are all posted HERE).
I just messaged Michael to get permission to share a video with you, and he’s still up for doing a little Q & A with yours truely – YAY!
::excuse me whilst I fangirl::
You gotta love my Michigan Madmen! So… yes, you heard me correctly – ‘share a video with you’! It’s time to put the kiddies to bed, put away the snacks, and grab your huggy pillow to watch
