ZAC’S HAUNTED HOUSE – A Visual Novel by Dennis Cooper

Published July 27, 2016 by Shadow Girl

CINEMATIC LITERATURE

Dennis Cooper has broken the cool people’s internet with Zac’s Haunted House.
It’s part of a “cycle-in-progress of novels” inspired by visual artist Zac Farley.

#ZHH DESCRIPTION

Dennis Cooper’s tenth novel, [#ZHH], bears all of the earmarks of his legendary and controversial work – intricate formal & stylistic play, disturbing content, an exploration of the borderline between fantasy and reality, concern for the emotions and dilemmas of youth, etc. – but it is both something unique in his body of writing and possibly something of a world’s first in the novel genre itself.

Instead of gathering materials from language, sentences, and the developmental character and narrative possibilities allowed and restricted by written fiction, Cooper has turned his characteristic inventiveness on the animated gif, employing gifs’ tightly wound, looping visual possibilities, nervous rhythms, tiny storylines, and their status as dismembered, twitching eye candy to compose a short novel of unexpected complexity, strangeness, poetry and comedy.

“Zac’s Haunted House” is as fun and eerie to explore as its namesake attraction, and, the more closely one searches and decodes its carefully detailed sequences and construction, a deep and fraught fiction puzzle.

Michael Ling’s movie adaptation of Edward Lee’s ‘THE BIGHEAD’

Published September 23, 2015 by Shadow Girl

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

Edward Lee’s The Bighead-The ROUGH Cut

“This is our initial cut of the flick, while it is a bit rough (in more ways than one), we wanted to share it with our fans as thanks for all the support! Hope y’all enjoy it, and remember to hide the kids before watching!!”           ~ Michael Ling
