International Bon Vivant and Raconteur
My friend J.T. Petty gave me a sneak-peek DVD of his new movie, S&Man (pronounced "sandman" -- not "S-and-M man" or "sampersandman", as some festival producers think), and it was awesome! It's a documentary about underground horror filmmakers, in particular the ones who do snuff and custom fetish videos ("Ow, I've been shot in the navel!" is now my favorite line from any movie ever). He interviews a lot of them, including the August Underground folks and Bill Zebub -- basically anyone you've ever seen selling DVDs at a Chiller Con -- and I have to say, they're all crazy!
J.T. is looking for distribution now. I hope it gets some soon. I can easily see this documentary showing on IFC or the Sundance Channel.
